Charles Martinet auditioned for the voice of Mario at a trade show at the last minute when the crew were putting away their equipment. He asked if he could read for the part. They allowed him to audition and instructed "You're an Italian plumber from Brooklyn." Martinet read his part in a low, raspy voice very similar to Mario's voice as heard on the cartoon series for Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World. He changed his voice to be more soft-hearted and friendly after thinking to himself that the previous voice he was using would be too harsh for children to hear.
