The original Super Mario turns 75

Google “Mario Segale” and you’ll get more than 6,000 hits — the vast majority related to his claim to pop-culture fame. Nintendo named its video-game character “Super Mario” after Segale: The company rented a Tukwila warehouse from him when it established its first beachhead in the U.S. in the early 1980s. “You might say I’m still waiting for my royalty checks,” Segale told The Seattle Times in 1993. He didn’t confirm widely circulated stories that “Super Mario” got his name after Segale stormed into Nintendo’s office, angrily demanding overdue rent. But many business associates say those tales fit the Mario they know — a hard-driving businessman who can be warm and generous, but also can display a temper when he doesn’t get what he wants.
