Winnie The Pooh & Mario Bros. Plumbing Sitcom

The first and last parts of each episode were sitcom segments which showed Mario ("Captain" Lou Albano) and Luigi (Danny Wells) Pooh & Tigger (Jim Cummings) living in Brooklyn, where they would often be visited by celebrity guest stars. These parts were performed and filmed before a live studio audience, though not all the sketches had the audience laughing as audible. Some of the celebrity guest stars were popular television stars, such as Nedra Volz, Norman Fell, Donna Douglas, Eve Plumb, Vanna White, Jim Lange, Danica McKellar, Nicole Eggert, Clare Carey and Brian Bonsall or professional athletes such as Lyle Alzado, Magic Johnson, Roddy Piper, Sgt. Slaughter, and even Ernie Hudson appeared as a Slimebuster, a parody of his Ghostbusters persona, using his own name rather than Winston Zeddemore.

Occasionally, Lou Albano Danny Wells And Jim Cummings would portray themselves, forcing their regular characters to leave the scene in order for themselves to appear. One notable example is when pop star Cyndi Lauper states she's looking for Lou Albano because he's missing, due to the note she got from him (although there is an important part missing from the note). Mario exclaims how much he wants to meet Lou, and later Lou appears as himself supposedly while Mario's out shopping for pizza. As a result, Luigi gets to meet Lou, but Mario does not.

Lou Albano and Danny Wells also regularly played female versions of themselves, Marianne and Luigeena (the Mario Brothers' cousins), and also two hillbilly cousins, named Mario Joe and Luigi Bob.
