Tips for Buying EarthBound

May 22nd, 2011 | EarthBound

Some time back I posted about how stuff from MOTHER 1 was referenced in a new anime show (see here). Apparently, in a more recent episode, there’s another slight homage to Mr. Saturns. Here’s a screenshot:

I haven’t seen this show, so I don’t know if it was mentioned in just this one scene or if it makes other appearances. It sounds like this show is absolutely filled with otaku-y pop culture references, so it’s not surprising that some MOTHER stuff has snuck into the show too 😛

Thanks to Dave for the screenshot and info, and to KiTA for info about it too!

Wow, this is cool! Do you think that they didn’t use Mr.Saturn over legal rights, or did they just want it to seem less obvious?

I watch this show in the morning, but I don’t realize that it look like Mr. Saturn LOL . I quite sure that this doll isn’t appear in the other episodes.
I’m so happy that someone still love Earthbound.

I wonder how Mr. Pluto talks/writes?

Dave said on May. 22, 2011

Well since he’s just a plushie in this anime, I guess we’ll never know.

I recall reading some interview saying that Itoi planned interplanetary travels in MOTHER 2…. maybe Mr. Saturns were supposed to appear in Saturn?

Definitly a nice reference :D. Also, is that a nose or a mouth?
