SuperMarioLogan (shorten to SML) is an American web series created by Logan Thirtyacre (born November 17, 1994), better known as the YouTuber of the same name. The series first aired on December 8, 2007. SML is based on plush versions of characters from the Mario franchise.[2][1] The series used to be good before 2016, and it was decent in 2016, but went downhill in 2017 when Jeffy was overused. The original SML channel has been deleted on YouTube, however on March 16, 2021, Thirtyacre announced that a channel originally created in 2012 was going to be used from then on.[3][4] A backup channel, originally created in 2008, also exists.[5][6]

Plot

Plush versions of Mario characters, and many other characters, have adventures at their home and at school.

Why It Deserves To Have Green Beans Now

Important note: This page is intended to talk about the main videos from the channel only, hence the page name. Please refrain from showing any ill will or any form of harassment on the crew that worked on the videos. It may violate the content policy. Any other user who does so must be met with a moderator of the wiki.
  1. The biggest problem and main issue with the series nowadays is possibly none other than the infamous character, Jeffy. Despite being introduced in 2016, he kickstarted a ton of problems with the series and is at his worst in "Jeffy's Bad Word", and "Locked Out", the two most infamous episodes involving Jeffy besides "Jeffy's Tantrum". He is also the cause of one of the most terrifying negatives on the Internet. Most of his videos are simply rehashes of Bowser Jr.'s original videos as well. As time went on, he managed to spawn even more controversies in the channel, a notable quality throughout 2017. The moment where he crossed the line has to be in the infamous aforementioned "Jeffy’s Tantrum!" since the video almost caused a young boy to hang himself with a noose after seeing the episode. This caused Thirtyacre's YouTube channel to get demonetized and age-restricted.[1][7]
    • This doesn't help by the fact that 2018 and 2020 have sped up the decline of SML with 2020 being considered the worst year by fans probably because the content was made during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of the characters such as Cody didn't appear as much since they usually tended to since Pablo was in quarantine. 2020 in particular not only showed more misleading videos title-wise, but that year particularly showed that Logan was running low on ideas as well. Likewise, 2017 was also criticized for the over-usage of Jeffy with the channel getting entirely demonetized as mentioned before. 2018 was even more criticized due to the flanderization of numerous characters being sped up more than in 2017 such as characters like Rosalina. Even the unlikability of already unlikable characters like Jeffy got taken up to 11.
    • To an extent, 2021 and 2022, while better than the aforementioned three years, introduced the "puppet" cast. The puppets were not very well-received. Even the designs themselves (except for a few such as Mario and Junior) hardly resembled the original plushies.
  2. There are a lot of unlikable characters including ones that used to be good but were flanderized:
    1. Mario (now known as Marvin) went from being the down-to-earth everyman to becoming a massive henpecked husband butt-monkey with lots of episodes dedicated to Jeffy, Rosalina, or some other character making Mario's life miserable. Also, he would become the clichéd idiot father ever since "Jeffy Skips School" while also becoming a somewhat greedy jerk who cares about money, particularly in 2020.
    2. Rosalina (now known as Rose) went from being a dumb but loving and kind girlfriend of Mario to an insensitive, excessively dull-witted, domineering wife who domestically abuses Mario and defends Jeffy for no good reason to the point where it's not only made clear that she considers spoiling children as good parenting but also implied that she hates Mario and only stays with him for Jeffy. She also counts as one of the very worst examples of an idiotic Houdini since bad things rarely happen to her and she seldom gets any punishment for her actions other than being stressed.
    3. Beginning in late 2019, Bowser Junior (now known as Junior) became much ruder and dumber until he started developing sociopathic tendencies. He is also crueler to Chef Pee Pee and Cody for little to no reason whatsoever.
    4. Black Yoshi (now known as It's Ya Boy Duggie) went from a badass and cold-hearted gangster who held a gun everywhere he went and would mess up anyone who crossed him to an unintelligent, lazy, and whiny gangster-wannabe type character who always pesters Mario to buy him the new Call of Duty game and goes great and dangerous lengths to obtain free stuff without doing any arduous work. For example, in "Black Yoshi's Big Bamboozle", he pretends to be a debt collector so he can steal credit card numbers to buy all sorts of his desired amenities and gets his nipples bitten off by Mr. Goodman as a consequence.
    5. In 2020, Joseph's already divisive character suffered character derailment when he got a red shell with wings. This made him become more of a jerk while being a bland and greedy stereotype on par with The Goodman Family in "Joseph the Millionaire!".
    6. Mr. Goodman went from a slightly dim-witted yet hilarious and entertaining comic-relief character who was also kind and friendly to a tyrannical and short-tempered mob boss who claims to own Mario's house and extorts him with "house payments" while threatening to rip his genitals or nipples off if he doesn't pay. He also rarely (if ever) gets any comeuppance. He's basically Peter Griffin, Carter Pewterschmidt, Wizard Kelly and Mr. Krabs all combined into one whole character. In some videos he's in however he still has his funny moments.
      • In fact, Logan never actually revealed why Goodman suffered a massive flanderization. This made the situation a lot worse.

    33. Jacques mainly for faking his death when Jeffy was introduced, which was the result of Jacques' money that originally was going to go to Jeffy when he turned 18. But since Jacques is still alive after 6 years, Marvin will have to suffer with Jeffy for the rest of his life.
  3. The humor and writing have gone from being really funny and entertaining to lame, unfunny, and uncreative. This caused the channels to have so many bad episodes, see this wiki for more details
  4. The characters almost never learn about their mistakes:
    1. In "Jeffy's Parents," Jeffy promised Mario to be a good boy leading Mario to adopt him which made people hope he would redeem himself. However in the very next episode, "Inside Jeffy", it shows Jeffy acting like a brat again, which means Jeffy lied.
    2. In "Mr. Goodman's Son!," which was Richard's first appearance, he literally makes an inspiring speech claiming that money cannot buy you important stuff like friends or happiness, which implies he would be the complete opposite of Goodman himself. However, in his next appearance, he behaves exactly like his father.
  5. From this era onwards, most of the videos are only about Jeffy, or if not Jeffy then Junior, which has had the effect of mostly pushing out characters that can't easily be placed in Jeffy and Junior videos.
    • Though Jeffy was only somewhat overused in 2016 because most of the videos were still Junior videos that have been overused since 2013.
    • In 2019 however, they tried to bring more focus on other characters but failed miserably, so in 2020-onwards, they didn't try to make other characters the focus of the video though there are exceptions.
  6. A large majority of the episodes nowadays have horrendous gross-out humor, mean-spirited characters, overused jokes, filler, and/or lazy attempts at humor. Examples of these traits include:
    1. The very overused running joke where Mario tries to feed Jeffy green beans because "they're good for him", but Jeffy always refuses to eat the green beans because he hates them, though that doesn't stop Mario from attempting to feed them to him.
    2. Cody making Bowser Junior pull a very long sausage out of his mouth in "Heartbroken" (even though it's kind of funny).
    3. The incredibly racist and offensive running gag where Jackie Chu (the Chinese guy) "can't see" (even though in later years they have toned this down).
    4. It also tended to overuse Bowser Junior calling Cody's mother a pig.
    5. The gross and disgusting ending where Jeffy defecates in his pants at the ending of "Jeffy's 17th Birthday!".
    6. The unfunny and former running gag where Jeffy asks a character if they’re "high" or saying that they’re "high as f***", especially to Mario, and also especially in the ending of "Jeffy's Tantrum!".
    7. Jeffy, in the earlier videos, defecating in his pants. We do not need to explain this.
    8. Jeffy thinks his arms are missing in "Jeffy Loses His Arms" when they clearly aren't.
    9. Nancy physically abused Jeffy in front of Mario and Rosalina in "Jeffy's Parents".
    10. The episode "Pregnant Jeffy" features Jeffy, who was sixteen at the time, actually getting pregnant, even though it's illegal for minors to have sex (due to the videos being filmed in Florida, where the age of consent is 18). Fortunately, that latter part didn't happen, as what happened was that Jeffy got zapped by a gun that could impregnate anyone.
    11. One disgusting moment where Brooklyn T. Guy farts in front of Mario and Rosalina in "Jealous Brooklyn Guy!".
    12. The infamous scene where Cody defecates his pants after eating Mexican food in "Bowser Junior Learns Spanish", is pretty stereotypical.
    13. In both "Bowser Junior Almost Goes to Sleep Forever" and "Joseph the Hero", Chef PP/Joseph saves a character's life and makes them a slave right after, and if the character refuses to do their command, the abuser says they should've let the slave die.
    14. Jeffy dresses up as Mario in "Jeffy's Future" and mimics everything he says for no reason.
    15. In "Jeffy Goes to the Arcade", Jeffy somehow gets himself in the crane machine, and there is a four-minute scene of Mario and Brooklyn Guy trying to get him out.
      • Not just those problems, but many catchphrases are overused too such as Jeffy often saying "I don't have to" in a weird voice, Richard shouting 'Eww, poor!" and Mario screaming "JEFFY!"
    16. The slapstick in this era went from being light-hearted and not too violent to falling to the same level as Herman and Katnip since a lot of the violence in this era is not only unfunny but also painful at the same time.
    17. Throughout a lot of the videos in 2020, there's an overused gag of one of the characters singing a rap song. While this is good only a few times, jokes like these get overused after a while.
  7. Some webisodes can have good first halves but have bad second halves (eg. "The DNA Test" or "Chef Pee Pee's New Job"), leading to the disappointment of many and is an example of bad writing.
    • Some webisodes even rely entirely on one joke, such as Chef Pee Pee peeing things that sound like the letter "P" in "Chef Pee Pee Pees Peas", Junior being mad at Cody in the School Project, Cody getting beat up by the police in Cody’s Evil Twin or Bowser Jr. breaking cups and plates and blaming it on gravity in the episode "Gravity".
  8. Jeffy also never learns his lesson or finds any problems with the trouble he causes no matter what. As mentioned before, he promised to be a good boy at the end of Jeffy's Parents, but in the very next video starring him, he annoys Mario for the whole video, meaning he learned nothing.
  9. Many of the characters from the older videos like Mama Luigi and Tanner, are completely absent in the newer ones, as they make zero appearances throughout the entirety of them, and only some of them such as Luigi and Sheriff Woody have made comebacks occasionally, only to not be used after that, and since Logan got a Cease & Desist letter from Nintendo and many of their actors have left the channel, it's very unlikely they'll ever come back or get human forms since Logan only focuses on either Jeffy or Junior, and characters like Shrek, Toad and Rosalina have been appearing less in each new SML video since then.
  10. Some videos have segments that have pretty crude animation. The best example of this is Jeffy's Sleepover where the animation was used in Brooklyn Guy's story, which doesn't help the fact it was animated by Nicktendo (not to be confused with reviewer NICKtendo). Though Nicktendo might've improved in his later years, this may be quite unacceptable.
    • Also the animation doesn't look that good, as the animation is very stiff and the character designs do not look that great.
  11. Many videos have misleading titles, like "Jeffy Loses His Arms", "Jeffy Plays Baseball", "Chef Jeffy" and "Jeffy's Online School". These videos only have Jeffy's name in the title to get more views.
  12. Some videos involve the character mocking the fans such as "Jeffy's TV Show".
    • In fact one of the blogs on Chilly's channel, which was the video where SuperMarioLogan promised to get rid of Jeffy after getting his ads back, he took the promise out of context which also showed them mocking their older fans.
  13. One of the main criticisms of these three seasons would be that pretty much everyone tends to bully and torture Mario for unfair reasons to the point where it's completely understandable why Mario is usually selfish and childish: his "friends" and family are always being mean to him first. It's to an extent that Logan comes off as a sadist who derives perverse pleasure from torturing Mario.
  14. Introduced in "The Human Potion", Bowser Jr, Joseph, Cody, and Bowser all turn into very unappealing human puppets. Mario, Rosalina, and Bully Bill also receive bad human puppet redesigns in “Jeffy's New Friend”. Despite how poorly received the human puppets were, they appeared in a few future videos. The purpose of this episode was to accommodate YouTube's new regulations on family-friendly characters at the time.
  15. As mentioned above, the entire SML channel became demonetized in 2018 simply or possibly because of one character: Jeffy. The problem is Craig the Devil was instead blamed for the demonetization despite barely appearing in the series by that time period.
  16. Most episodes could encourage you to do bad things such as:
    1. Bullying
    2. Lying frequently
    3. Stealing things
    4. Framing people
    5. Crying for attention
    6. Doing horrible things on purpose
    7. Breaking things/damaging property
    8. Not being responsible
    9. Not listening to people
    10. Being ignorant and oblivious to others
    11. Submitting to and agreeing with an abusive relationship with someone
    12. Cheating on others
    13. Neglecting others' needs and wants
    14. Being racist
    15. Taking advantage of others
    16. Breaking rules without good reasons
    17. Being sluggish
    18. Kidnapping
    19. Spoiling your own child
    20. Not learning away from your mistakes
    21. Lacking empathy and proper common sense
    22. Letting people walk over you
    23. Being greedy and selfish
  17. Many episodes have terrible endings like "Jeffy the Psychic" and "Jeffy Wins the Lottery". In fact, most Bowser Junior-centered episodes always have him and/or his friends losing at the end, which can be pretty repetitive and mean-spirited despite the fact they are all unlikable characters.
  18. It overuses stock sound effects, partially ones from the likes of Hanna-Barbera.
  19. The episode "Jeffy's Kids" was so controversial and disturbing for YouTube that SML became age-restricted. SML's advertisements were also taken away, but after they were given back to Thirtyacre, he went back to his inappropriate content. This shows that he did not learn his lesson.
  20. While it's normal for a show like this to get unrealistic, they execute it properly. Some episodes are just too unrealistic to be considered legal.
    • For example, "Jeffy's Pet Shark" is about Jeffy getting a pet shark, which screams a total of 7 times in this episode. Sharks cannot scream, because they have no vocal cords.[citation needed] It is also somehow able to breathe on land and likes human food, most infamously cheese (which is like a dog liking chocolate).
  21. Many of the episodes have a question that is based on the plot of the episode, but at the bottom, it reads "Funniest comment wins a free video game!". But many of the episodes show it, even for sad ones which is rather not an appropriate time to add it.
    • For example "Jeffy Fakes His Death!" has the question "Who is one person that you never want to die?" which is a rather sad question since it was supposed to be for people to remember their friend/pet/family member that died. But the bottom text is inappropriately put there despite the fact that death is not funny.
  22. In recent times, there has been a lot of shameless self-promoting product placement for the SuperMarioLogan merchandise including at the end of videos nowadays. They even go as far as making entire episodes dedicated to promoting merchandise.
  23. Recently in the modern episodes, the soundtrack called "Earthy Crust" by Jingle Punks became way too overused in the series as it constantly appears on moments that aren't even that dramatic or just starts playing out of the blue (no pun intended), which is off-putting, annoying and ridiculous, considering the fact that the soundtrack sounds more dramatic than what’s on the video and drags on for too long. Not to mention but there are videos where the soundtrack played more than once or twice. Even moments that were meant to be funny get sadly ruined by this soundtrack. It's almost like the channel is desperately trying hard to be dark and trying to gain any attention.
    • Its sister channel, Titototter, while better than SuperMarioLogan since they didn't get a cease and desist from SEGA of America, also overuses the soundtrack and abuses it roughly 5 or more times which is played prematurely during moments when a character simply screams, or when something unexpected happens (especially when Sonic notices he's wearing a sailor suit) or even when it's not even that dramatic (i.e. Panda simply giving Monkey a banana), which comes off sometimes as unfitting and unnecessary.
  24. Despite making the transition into making family-friendly content, there are still lots of rather inappropriate things such as the "Si Papi" running gag, which is known as a sex joke.
  25. The series has straight-up abandoned most of its side series ending them all on an unresolved cliffhanger, many of which are likely never going to return because of the Cease and Desist letter from Nintendo. (Like Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures, Luigi's Mansion, and The Pokémon Series as they include characters from Nintendo properties) Examples include:
    1. Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures
    2. Chef Pee Pee Quits
    3. Luigi's Mansion
    4. The Pokémon Series
    5. American Idol
  26. Thanks to YouTube's new rules, Logan himself had to get rid of certain characters because he thought that they would violate YouTube's Community Guidelines.
    • Doofy the Dragon stopped appearing in future videos due to his suicide jokes until he reappeared in "Jeffy Ball Z".
  27. Some videos don't have any disclaimers at the beginning of the video. For example, the infamous episode "Jeffy's Tantrum" doesn't have any language/content warnings despite having a scene where Jeffy tries to hang himself over a $3 SpongeBob SquarePants game (though it was also Mario's fault due to him being a crustaceous cheapskate).
    • (Note that this is aforementioned) Because of this, it probably led to a seven-year-old child actually attempting to hang himself the way Jeffy almost did in this video. The mother discovered her son and that he was inspired by SuperMarioLogan, so she banned him from watching it. She then reported it to the British The Sun (United Kingdom). While it is true that it wasn't Logan's fault that the child tried to imitate Jeffy, Logan should have at least put a warning at the beginning of the video to make sure that stuff like this does not happen.[1]
  28. Most of the new channel remakes are mediocre at best and have several issues that keep them from being effective recreations of the originals, like unnecessary extra scenes, deleted scenes, inaccurate pacing, and for some reason removing profanity/explicit jokes (in spite of other recent videos on the channel featuring some profanity, like "Jeffy's Good Day!").
  29. Some episodes completely retcon older episodes from the 2007-2016 era, and early 2017, such as Jeffy's 18th Birthday which despite being an alright episode, retcons the death of Jacques Pierre Francois as an excuse to keep Jeffy on the channel, and it's sequel Jeffy's 19th Birthday where it's revealed that Nancy is still alive despite clearly being shot in the head and not jumping out of the exploded van destroyed by Simmons, and it's never explained how she's still alive since it was shown in the predecessor that Jeffy clearly killed her, showing no signs of her ever coming back.
  30. On February 5, 2021, Logan received a cease and desist letter from Nintendo of America for using the Mario brand in a raunchy humor environment and misdirecting his audience. As a result, Logan announced that he would no longer use Mario characters in his videos and instead switch to the human puppets thus making them a permanent change. He also changed the channel name simply to SML to avoid any connections with the Mario franchise. Some people suspect the letter to be fake thinking that Logan is lying to his fans, but that wasn't the case as the letter turns out to actually be real. Once again, many still believe the letter is fake and probably might’ve been printed either by a hater, Chilly, or Logan's second ex-girlfriend Adriana, all to make him squirm. This could lead to Logan's reputation dying for good if the videos don't involve Jeffy in them.
    • What makes this situation worse is that back in May, Logan revealed that he would delete his previous three main channels on June 1, 2021, and would be forced to use only the human puppets in his current channel. This has understandably left old and new fans upset but fortunately various reuploads of his content have been made. Plus, the channels weren't deleted on the day.
    • However, on July 7, 2021, Logan made a video on the original SuperMarioLogan Plush Show channel saying it would be deleted the following day and that SuperLuigiLogan and SuperBowserLogan would be deleted in the following months. SuperMarioLogan Plush Show was deleted as planned on July 8, 2021, and all the videos on SLL and SBL were private the following month.
  31. They sometimes like to appeal to the latest trends such as "Jeffy Plays Fortnite" (despite being decent) which was released in early 2018, "Jeffy's Fidget Spinner" uploaded in mid-2017, "Among Us" (despite being a good episode) released in late 2020, "Squid Game" (despite also being a good episode) released in October of 2021, etc.
    • They even tend to cash in on controversial or unfunny events either by making references to them or videos wholly dedicated to them. Examples include "Jeffy the Boxer", "Bowser Junior's Big Discovery", and "Scooter's Birthday".
  32. Some episodes like "The Film Project!" have actual implications of pedophilia, with an example being in the aforementioned episode in the Titanic parody scene, as in one part, Cody (a minor) tells Ken to draw him without the towel he was wearing and even mentions he wants to do so in order to show his genitalia.
    1. Joseph's foot fetish jokes can also be pretty disturbing at times, being at its worst in "Star Stricken!" where he spent most of the video obsessing over Margot Robbie's feet.
  33. Overall, Modern SuperMarioLogan basically feels like the web equivalent of modern Family Guy with them jumping the shark, the writing being downgraded to mediocrity, some (or many) characters being flanderized, teaching bad life lessons morals, containing many offensive and unfunny jokes and subjecting certain characters to needless torture while trying to portray the one being tortured as somehow having done something to deserve it (even if it was just expressing a personal opinion because having a different opinion is the equivalent of being Satan, it seems).

Super Qualities

  1. The channel used to be good before Jeffy was overused and Nintendo sued them.
  2. Some of the jokes are still funny like in Jeffy's Taco Tuesday and Chef Pee Pee Pees Peas and in "Bowser Junior's Cookie Crisps" where Bowser Junior made the cookie crisp promo literally illegal by using other companies' catchphrases.
  3. There are still a handful of good/decent episodes, examples like:
    1. Jeffy's Parents
    2. Jeffy the Rapper (and its sequel, the latter of which started 2018 on a high regard)
    3. The Bet
    4. Attack of the Killer Shrimp
    5. Joseph's Mom
    6. Zombie Bowser
    7. Jeffy's YouTube Channel
    8. Bowser Junior's Bad News
    9. Black Yoshi's Call of Duty Loan
    10. The Costume Contest
    11. Black Yoshi's Koolaid Problem (Arguably the best episode of this era)
    12. Mr Goodman's Son
    13. Jeffy's Foster Home (despite the bad beginning)
    14. Bowser Junior's 11th Birthday (Also counts as the best)
    15. Life of Brooklyn Guy
    16. Black Yoshi's Bamboozle
    17. Jeffy and Junior's Big Heist
    18. The Baseball Game
    19. Among Us
    20. Hunky Cody
    21. Bowser Junior's Cookie Crisp
    22. Jeffy and Junior Go to Prison
    23. Jeffy Plays Basketball
    24. Jeffy Loses His Voice! (despite the misleading title)
    25. SpiderKen (and its sequel)
    26. SQUID GAME
    27. The Zombie Apocalypse!
    28. The Baby Alien!
    29. Cody's Magic Wand!
    30. Jeffy Ball Z
    31. Saw
    32. Three Little Pigs!
    33. The Film Project
    34. Jeffy's Fairy GodParents (a great parody of The Fairly OddParents)
    35. The PowerPuff Jeffy's!
    36. The School Bus!
    37. The Little Boy Who Cried Wolf!
    38. Saw 2
    39. Cops And Robbers
    40. Jeffy's 18th Birthday
  4. The bonus content outside of the main channel like the BTS videos, Meet the Cast videos, and reaction videos are still fun to watch.
  5. Sometimes episodes do have good morals, for example, "Mr. Goodman's Son" has a good moral, the moral being "Money can't buy you everything" (even though Goodman didn't see it that way, and slapped his son Richard saying such a thing), and "The Test!", where the moral is to not cheat on your test.
  6. Some characters are still enjoyable including:
    1. Craig the Devil
    2. Chef Pee Pee
    3. Jackie Chu
    4. Sheirff Woody (despite no longer appearing)
    5. Bowser Junior (from 2017 to mid-2019, before his Flanderization)
    6. Brooklyn Guy
    7. Cody Nutkiss
    8. Harold Wilfred
    9. Toad
    10. Simmons
    11. Dr. Finklesheetz
    12. God
    13. Bowser
    14. Tyrone
    15. Black Yoshi (despite his Flanderization)
    16. Screwball
    17. Ken
    18. SpongeBob SquarePants
    19. Loan Dolphin
    20. Hansel
    21. Shrek
    22. PJ Crenshaw (despite not appearing until 2021)
    23. Tom Brady
    24. Charleyyy
    25. Doofy the Dragon (despite no longer appearing, until he came back in Jeffy Ball Z)
    26. Chives
    27. Patrick Coleman
    28. Thomas the Tank Engine
    • While no longer part of the main or recurring cast, many other past characters made one-shot appearances in this era and were great too, such as:
      1. Mama Luigi
      2. The Angry Birds
      3. Luigi
      4. D-Money
      5. Minnie Mouse
      6. Sonic the Hedgehog
      7. Principal Steinback
      8. Judge Pooby
    • Some of the new and new one-shot characters are also likable such as:
      1. Mr. Krabs
      2. Patrick Star
      3. Cosmo and Wanda
      4. Vicky
      5. The Powerpuff Girls
      6. Puppet Ken
      7. Lightning McQueen
      8. Tow Mater
      9. Chef Pee Pee's Imposter
      10. Tommy Pickles
      11. Chuckie Finster
      12. Angelica Pickles
      13. Even the bad characters can be likable in some episodes, for example, Jeffy is likable in episodes such as "Jeffy the Rapper (and its sequel)".
    • Despite their Flanderization as mentioned above, Bowser Junior, Goodman, and Mario can still be considered fairly enjoyable.
  7. Though rarely, there is sometimes character development in the series:
    1. Despite still having his aforementioned flaws and is still diverse amongst the fanbase, Jeffy has been slightly improving since 2019, as many of his recurring jokes have either been a lot less repetitive than they were in 2016-2018 (though he still has some repetitive gags like "Si Papi" and "I don't have to) or have been phased out entirely, and he can even be aware of how asinine he is.
    2. Following up from 2016, Bowser Junior was one of the few characters who got a good amount of character development and actually got some redemption to the point he could be considered likable for the most part. Though sadly, he did get flanderized beginning with 2019.
  8. After SuperLuigiLogan got demonetized, Logan moved over to SuperBowserLogan and made it a little bit more family-friendly, which might be considered an improvement.
  9. Most of the songs are pretty good and the beats are well made, especially in Seasons 12 - 13 like "Get Hunky", "We Need That Mustache Back", "Booty Booty" and The Cookie Crisp song.
  10. The voice-acting is still very good (except for Karen, and Rosalina when she is yelling), most notably on Brooklyn T. Guy, Mr. Goodman, Cody, Mario, Bowser Junior., Joseph, Jeffy, etc.
  11. The series still has its action scenes, most of which are still very good (examples: The climax of "Attack of the Killer Shrimp", the second half of "The South Pole Santa", and the beginning of "The Cookie Jar").
  12. Some episodes have some throwbacks to older episodes. Most notably "Bowser Junior’s 11th Birthday", and "Jeffy the Pirate".
  13. The camerawork and the lighting have noticeably improved, with the series notably transitioning fully to HD and looking a lot better as a result.
  14. While most of the years have been bad or mediocre, not all of them are completely bad. Some of them can be considered average or at the very least, decent:
    1. While it has its flaws, 2019 is probably the best year out of these years and is an improvement over 2017 & 2018, since it had fewer bad videos compared to others. It has some videos that are widely considered to be the best in the series, such as "Junior's 11th Birthday" and especially "Black Yoshi's Kool-Aid Problem".
    2. Even though 2020 is still an awful year for the channel, it did improve during September/October of that year and the channel started to make more good episodes despite a few bad ones like "Pregnant Jeffy", "Jeffy's New Year Resolution".
      • This can be noted in how most of the videos are getting longer and have more good plot ideas, Pablo coming fully back, and most notably how they began using more of the other major characters in the spotlight.
    3. 2021 and 2022 despite the terrible cease and desist from Nintendo, are slight improvements over 2020, since there are a lot more good/great videos compared to the latter (despite the year going through a brief downfall in August and maybe September), especially during June and October. It also has a few videos that are widely considered to be the best in the series, such as "Jeffy and Junior Go to Prison" (which ended the SuperBowserLogan era with great send off) and "Squid Game".
    4. Despite the fact that the show milked the Jeffy videos for profits, in recent years, it seems to be having slightly less Jeffy videos
  15. 2020 and 2021 saw the arrival of new locations, such as the Forest, the North Pole Penitentiary Prison, the City Prison, etc. This could help make less uneventful videos taking place in only one location.
  16. The channel is against the dreaded NFTs which is good news.

Reception

Even though there are still a handful of fans who still like SuperMarioLogan, most fans gave this era a mixed to mostly negative reception, due to the flanderization of several characters, the writing being downgraded to mediocrity, the jokes getting way more disgusting and immature, and the overuse of Jeffy. This era is sometimes referred to as "The Jeffy Era" by fans. Not only did SML lose a lot of old fans because of this era (such as YouTuber Yoshi Player, who reviewed the show until 2016), but SML also became one of the most controversial YouTubers of all time because of this. Despite this though, SML still has a large fan base with kids and SML soon became one of the fastest-growing plush channels during this era, with its main channel reaching 9.9 million subscribers prior to its deletion in 2021.

Lawsuit

In February of 2021, Logan received a letter from a lawyer from Nintendo of America stating that he had to cease all use of Nintendo plushies such as Mario or Bowser due to them being used in obscene videos, or Nintendo of America would sue him, meaning that he had to switch to his human puppets, which his fans strongly disliked. As another result of this, Logan stated that he had to forcefully take down his original YouTube channel, which happened on July 8, 2021.

False flagging incident

In early 2018, Logan found both the SML and SLL channels getting demonetized to the point where new videos were being instantly confirmed by manual review. In late April and early May of 2018, fans discovered the demonetization spree was being caused by a group of disgruntled fans who were reporting many videos on both channels, all led by a user named SkipDip. SkipDip stated that his motives were to force Logan to admit he had "scammed" people on Patreon and to force him to stop using Jeffy and Junior due to them being the focus of nearly every modern SML video. He claimed that by using those characters and rarely using Shrek, Black Yoshi, and other older characters, Logan was "insulting" fans of the older videos and not caring for them even though Black Yoshi still appeared semi-frequently and Shrek still got a few videos per year. A massive flame war broke out as a result, as some fans actually supported SkipDip's motives. Other independent users also mass-reported videos either to troll Logan or because they were overzealous moral guardians trying to "protect" children. As a result, it would take until August of that year for the demonetization spree to calm down.
