That thing they're standing on is a tree. They're standing on a tree from World 1-3 of Super Mario Bros., in case you were wondering what that is.
(56k warning)

I gave the characters some more shininess in this strip. I think it looks better. I also gave the sky a slight gradient.

The joke wasn't the greatest here. I wasn't in an extremely funny mood today. You have to play some 80s Mario to get it. In those games, you couldn't go backwards. You would just hit the edge of the screen and stop.

So any comments, complaints, suggestions, and feather pillows are appreciated.

Ugh...I hated that. I would always lose my mushrooms because the went in the wrong direction. Oh and I find it funny.

Cool, im not the only one. ^_^

I might agree with you, but there is another level in SMB that has platforms that are distinctively mushrooms, and it looks different from the trees.

Look at these two pictures:

http://www.themushroomkingdom.net/images/maps/smb_4-3.gif <--Mushrooms in World 4-3

So those are definitely trees, in all their poorly drawn glory.

I guess the sky is upside-down... I'll fix that in the next comic.

Wait a minute, does that mean when a Goomba (or other creature in the Mushroom Kingdom) wants to go somewhere, they have to go all the way around the world to get back? Still funny.
