Kooky and Kuki by nintendomaximus Kooky and Kuki by nintendomaximus
Here's another Ides of March quickie I just whipped up. Like that other one about Toad's mixed colors, this one looks at an oddity of the DiC-produced Super Mario Bros. cartoons. To be more exact, the fact that DiC gave the Koopalings different names other than their official ones because they didn't have names in the Japanese version of the game. If you've read my parody fanfic, King Koopa Katastrophe Spoof, you may have noticed that I made a running gag where Wendy O. Koopa is irritated with everyone calling her "Kootie Pie". However, Wendy is not the featured character here. Rather, it is her older brother Ludwig Von Koopa, who has a less recurring running gag of irritance of his cartoon name, "Kooky". Yeah, I know, that word does indeed fit him well, just as the cartoon names for Morton Koopa Jr. (Bigmouth) and Roy Koopa (Bully) do. But when you spell Ludwig's name another way, you think to yourself, "Isn't that a girl's name?" That's what I did.
And so, I drew this. It's Ludwig (colored in pencils and markers), telling an offscreen person that his name has been confused with that of Numbuh Three of "Codename: Kids Next Door" (colored in just markers). I had originally thought this up with Dr. Robotnik of "Sonic the Hedgehog" fame telling us that the "Eggman" monnikor is actually the name for the enemy drones of the Fiendish Organization of World Larceny from "Darkwing Duck". I never turned that sketch into a full picture, but it did lead to this when I realized that Ludwig's cartoon name has the same pronunciation (and almost the same spelling) as Numbuh Three's real name. This picture's also another milestone for me, as it's the first time I've ever drawn anyone from "Codename: Kids Next Door".
Ludwig is Nintendo. Kuki is Cartoon Network and Curious Pictures.

Actually they named him Kooky because the Koopalings didn't have names back then, you know the songs that play in the show, well the singers of the original songs had the same names. They named the Koopalings after them.

That's because DIC didn't do any research on the Koopaling's names.

I got to admit that I really like their first names untill DiC change them, some how I like to referred their "DiC-produced" changed names as nicknames like my sis calls me Skoot and I called her Han-ban.
It still a awesome picture =D

Wonderful concept! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I was SO disappointed with DiC for changing the Koopa children's names, ESPECIALLY Ludwig von Koopa's. Ludwig is my favorite character out of the Koopa kids (as well as out of the Super Mario Bros. series). And that's interesting to hear that the children were nameless in the original Japanese version of the video game, because I was just wondering to myself what they're original Japanese names were.

Whoops, sorry, could not remember the characters well, especially outdated but classic cartoons. You're right, that's Kooky, Cheatsy is different.

I remember Ludwig Von Koopa, from the old Mario games. And I also used to watch the old Mario cartoons all the time, too, back in the day......so I know about his "Kooky Von Koopa" U.S. cartoon name. I'm not that huge on Kids Next Door.....but Kuki is cute in this pic. I like that sort of blank look on her face. :)
