Peta vs Nintendo

Post by piercingsavedmylife on Mon Nov 14, 2011 10:16 pm

They are suing Nintendo over the Tanooki Suit in Which their mascot Mario dress up as a raccoon after eating a LEAF and gains the ability to fly. In Super Mario Bros. 3 where the power up first appeared over 20 YEARS ago there was one with just the ears and tail and one with the full suit in which he turned to a statue as well. They are suing them claiming it encourages people to skin raccoons alive and where the skin.

I feel this is a little ridiculious the suit is a very old power up and is hugely popular with the fan base. I mean really can't you do your research?

True and the real life Tanuki raccoon dogs is tragic but the game in which the have a skined alive Tanuki chasing a Mario seems more harsh than the original. Can you imagine what it would feel like to run around w/o your skin ouch. And what about the fact MArio jumps on turles to use the as projectiles and jumps on other animals to kill them?

The are against insulin because it is an animal byproduct or something. I think morons is more appropriate,

A little kid would be more likely to try and eat a leaf to turn in to a raccoon then skin a raccoon alive.

That and the Tanooki is a MYTHICAL creature and the game the created is worse than the actual Mario game.

A raccoon that is skined alive chases MArio down to get back its fur. Seriously, thats got to be more painful than the act of being skinned.

I feel like there are so maany things they could have been angry about for the last 30 plus year now they choose to sue? I really think they would have lost and their lawyers told them so it became a just kidding type of thing.

Then why did they file in the first place. Seriously, they didn't threaten they filed the paper
work and that costs money. The attorney's fees may have been pro bono but the fees to file the
suit with the court are not. I think the firm that took the case has way to much time on their hands.
