I've been researching Ice Capades for the book, and stumbled upon this little video gem that I just had to pass along. It's a late-80s Ice Capades ABC special hosted by Alyssa Milano and a “Hogan Family”-era Jason Bateman that imagined what would happen if the characters from Nintendo’s Mario Brothers came to life -- and skated. Mr. Belevedere played King Koopa.
Dear YouTube, thank you.
Love, everybody (except modern-day Jason Bateman and Alyssa Milano).
Got some memories of Ice Capades to share? We'd love to hear them!
