It must be said that the mustachioed plumber has been squatting our television screens and toy shelves for more than 40 years, and almost as much as he strives to save poor Princess Peach from the clutches of the infamous Bowser.

We owe this long-term work begun last year to the teams of Femboy Movieswho worked froma 16mm copy of the original film.
