Mario Quiz Cards!!??
These cards were actually officially licensed by Nintendo and designed to be educational trivia cards, geared towards children and young students.
The cards were manufactured by Atlas Editions and a publishing company called Newfield Publications.
The cards had a format where they would show a bubble with Super Mario characters doing something related to the trivia question being asked.
Some images had Mario, Luigi and the others performing actions that Nintendo would normally never allow them to do in the games.
For example, there is a card that shows Luigi reading a history book in a card that asks when the Nazi German dictator Adolf Hitler rose to power.
"Wasn't in your bingo card today was it?"
