Fans have long wondered just who Mario and Luigi’s parents are. Reddit user l33tredrocket may have just spotted a clue to the identity of the Italian duo’s father. The speculation comes from an old tin tray licensed by Nintendo which features a bearded man in a blue hat bearing the letters “SR.” The man shares many of the characteristics of Mario and Luigi, including a mustache and a large round nose.
Reddit user Inkwild also made a full drawing of what Mario Sr. might look like based on the image from the tray. In this drawing, we see the man in similar blue overalls to his sons, as well as a yellow shirt. He is also smoking from a pipe identical to what is seen on the tray.
