Time for some typing this Edutainment Month, and it's not Mavis Beacon. Nope, it's Mario of Super Mario Bros fame, pressuring you into higher WPMs while disregarding proper typing habits! ● Please consider helping support LGR on Patreon! http://www.patreon.com/LazyGameReviews

To this day my favorite typing game is typing of the Dead. Came out for the Dreamcast originally and then they had a PC port. I played that game for hours

This took me back! I learned a lot from Mario Teaches Typing. In fact, I was the best typist in my class at school largely because of it. I really liked how you could be Mario, Luigi, or the Princess, which was also a point of strong appeal that Mario 2 had for me. It's true, you really had to sort of self-motivate with the game, but I think it really did help me to learn typing and improve my typing to a good, strong level. Wonderful to see this game getting looked at again. I never had the CD version, so the differences are really wild to see!

Pointing at her keyhole so they may insert the key. Genius.

why did Nintendo let Interplay release a Mario game on pc that should be like if Mario got released on Xbox one or Ps4 today? Plus can you review Marios game gallery

I'll be honest. When you're 9 years old and never had Famicom, you would play any Mario game you can. Actually I used to play this game a lot and it actually taught me something.

This is what I learned to type on in the 5th grade in 1995!! I won in a typist competition in high school and averaged 120 wpm. Now that I am 34, I average 150. This program works pretty well. I am not kidding

Clint sounds so bored he could walk into a wall and not even give a second thought in the slightest, especially compared to his now energetic voiceover work nowadays.

The original actor you mention - Ronald Rubin - must be the same guy who voiced Morph in X-Men The Animated Series and Artemis in the original Sailor Moon dub. It HAS to be - I can't think of another voice-over performer that is also named Ron Rubin. Saw him in a panel years ago. GREAT dude.

I love that the company that birthed the Fallout franchise (my personal favorite series of all time) also made “Mario Teaches Typing”. You know, if the theory of parallel universes is true some sad people out there got Mario Teaches Typing 4 rather than New Vegas.

It was actually this program where I heard the Donut Plains music for the very first time, and its particular arrangement got ingrained into my young mind from playing the game a lot. So when I finally heard the original version of the song in Super Mario World itself and even to this very day, I completely dismissed it because in my mind it was playing it all wrong by playing the two halves in the wrong order. The MTT version of the song just makes more sense to me.

Mario in this game (original voice) sounds like what Shrek would sound like if he took helium and was trying too hard to be American. Wait, that come out wrong.

This game was a huge hit in my school! (2nd grade in the 90's lol) You say it's pretty useless, but honestly it really helped us type faster, i mean the gloves at the top tell you the correct finger to use for the key, and we all competed for the highest scores lol.

I once watched videos on a promotional Apple CD called MacAdvocate, to teach new users about System 7.5. In some of them, Mario Teaches Typing was on the Launcher in the background, and until now, I was ever so curious about it. Now I wish that icon had never been in the shots.

This is literally how I learned to touch type when I was a kid. My mom forced me to instead of my "hunt and peck" method. So glad I did. I'm now a programmer. Thank you, Mario.
