Episode Synopsis Edit
This episode has Joey duelling the faux-psychic Espa Roba. Joey has a difficult time at first, because Espa's younger siblings are helping him to cheat. However, after Mokuba thwarts the Roba siblings' attempts to cheat, Joey is able to defeat Espa and take his rarest card, Jinzo.
- (Title) The episode title is a reference to the "Super Mario Bros." franchise.
- (00:00) This is an example of the Don't Try This at Home trope.
- (01:10) "Eeeeeh (munches) what's up Doc?" is the catchphrase of Bugs Bunny from The Looney Toons .
