Super Mario Kart was originally conceived as a two-player version of F-Zero. However, due to the limitations of the Super NES, having such elaborate tracks in a multiplayer game would not have been possible. Originally, the game was conceived using generic characters, including a man wearing overalls. However, during development, the characters tried replacing one of the characters with Mario and the decision was made to have the game use a Super Mario theme.

In Japan when your character places 1st in Grand Prix, they are drinking the bottle of champagne. When the game was ported outside of Japan, Nintendo censor it by having the character not drinking it.
