As much as I love him as Mario, I'd love to see him take more roles in western animation and the like. He's a superb voice actor with excellent range!

Happy Birthday Charles!! The longest running actor for the Mario Brothers, as well as the Wario Brothers, and Paarthurnax (did NOT expect that from him)!!!!

As if I didn't have enough reason for liking the 1993 JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OVA so much already..!

I just found this video of Charles doing Wario's voice back in 96. I think it's fascinating to hear how different he sounded back then.

No one will ever be a better Mario actor than him. He is true god of the Marios and Warios.

That's pretty cool that he got to work on anime like JoJo's Bizzare Adventure.

He is Mario's voice to me. I hope he never quits. Also he's brilliant as Luigi as well.

It's is now 2013. And Charles has been the voice of Mario for a total of 18 years!

That's awesome and amazing! =D

Um...I'm pretty convinced that Mario didn't do the SFX for Donkey Kong. From what I observed, it was a chimpanzee effect that was slowed down.

@Sarge Ray Charles Martinet's official website mentions that he voiced Donkey Kong in some of the games.

@NCZ Yeah, same with characters in the Dr. Seuss PC Interactive games.

I really wish Charles got to do more things besides Mario. Paarthurnax really proved that he's a spectacular actor.

Mario was a dragon in Skyrim. Wrap that around your head and let the fangasm commence.

I'm glad that Mr. Martinet finally got credit for voicing Donkey Kong in most of the Mario spin-off/sports games from '96 to '05! I grew up hearing him voice not only my favorite plumbers and cheaters (Wario "Bros.") but my favorite gorilla as well, and didn't even realize it until I read it on his website! Charles Martinet helped and continues to help make my childhood and current days filled with fun! So, let's-a go!

He has always done a good job as Mario but my favorite character for him would be Paarthurnax of Skyrim. He does a good job in the role and I do like the last part on the clip as it really made me struggle to choose to either kill him or let him live, definitely one of the best character in the Elder Scroll series.

Happy birthday, Charles.

You are perhaps the best VA from Nintendo. Mario, Luigi, Wario and Waluigi are much more awesome thanks to you.

As a fan of Nintendo, Charlie was a big time fav, not only as Mario, but as every character in the Super Punch-Out SNES game, too.

I like there voices, and they also voiced the "warui" brothers. Warui usually means "bad", and also Tdswrth
