Other than some concept art, the Super Mario World interview on Nintendo’s Japanese website with some of its original developers also reveals some fascinating tidbits about the game. One especially interesting part is about Mario and Yoshi – specifically, what exactly is Mario doing with his hand just before Yoshi sticks his tongue out?

Turns out it was originally the latter, but it was officially changed to the former via some official artwork (though it’s still ambiguous with the in-game sprites). Here’s what Shigefumi Hino, who was the Character Graphic Designer on Super Mario World and who created Yoshi, had to say about it:

Did you know Big Boos can be defeated by sliding down stairs in Super Mario World. It’s the only Boo in the game that can be taken down in that manner, so perhaps it was an oversight on the part of Nintendo’s developers.
Some players definitely knew about this, but there are plenty who were completely unaware of it. How many of you tried out that little secret back in the day?
