Hello, there. I just have a question about a derivative work I would like to do. I am a HUGE fan of Nintendo's mascot Mario and I am interested in making a cartoon based off the series in general. Now, I have already contacted Nintendo, and they appreciated my request, although, since they are not a cartooning company, they cannot really grant my request. I am fully aware that Mario and Mario-related objects are copyright Nintendo, and I do NOT believe in plagiarism at all. I am very serious about this and would like to hear your feedback on this matter. Also, my cartoons feature some original characters, locations, and has a different feel than the actual games, and it's not based on the original Mario cartoons; it's something that I did (while giving the proper credit, of course).
