The Fishing Trip! is the 217th video of SML Movies.
Bowser and his son go on a fishing trip. Mario and Jeffy tag along!
The episode starts with Bowser watching Charleyyy and Friends. Charleyyy is playing catch with his dad, but Charleyyy doesn't have a dad. Bowser starts spending time with Bowser Junior. The first they do is go fishing. Meanwhile, Jeffy pretends to be a pig. Mario and Jeffy also go along with them. Jeffy wears safety gear in case if he drowns. Mario also tells Jeffy to watch out for sharks and we see a shark jump out of the water. Mario gets a fishing rod. Meanwhile, the video cuts to Bowser and Junior with a fishing rod that has a gummy worm as bait. Bowser tells Junior to throw the fishing rod as in swish the fishing rod for the string to come out. However, Junior takes it the wrong way and throws the fishing rod into the water.The two then argue and Junior goes in the water. The video cuts back to Mario and Jeffy with the fishing rod. Jeffy then reels in a fish. It turns out that the fish Jeffy caught was Dory. Mario throws Dory back in the water since she's looking for her family in California, (referencing Finding Dory). Meanwhile, Junior starts to get attacked by a shark. However, Bowser is playing which is probably Angry Birds as Bowser said pigs. A lifeguard notices and tells Bowser. The lifeguard just throws a beach ball to help. Mario then comes to see what is going on. In sheer horror, Bowser jumps in the water to help and kills the shark. The video cuts back to Mario. We see Jeffy on a monkey float. Mario jumps in the water and gets attacked by another shark. Jeffy then wonders where Mario went.
Many Mario fans were upset that Mario died, while Bowser Junior haters were extremely upset that Junior didn't die.
The SML Analyst enjoyed and liked this episode and thought it was funny. Although he enjoyed the crossover of Mario and Jeffy with Bowser and Bowser Junior, he would have wanted the cross characters to interact, such as having Mario and Bowser Junior interacting.
