Logan Austin Thirtyacre (born: November 17, 1994 [age 29]), better known online as SuperMarioLogan (often shortened to SML), is an American YouTuber who makes plush videos. He uses plushies from Mario games, and has some toys that are non-Nintendo as well. He also does reviews, updates, etc. His reviews were on his SuperLuigiLogan channel, which was once his new main channel. He started making videos in late 2007. SML is based off plush versions of characters from the Mario franchise.[1][2] His entire channel has been demonetized since late 2017. On the SuperLuigiLogan channel the content ranges from SML Movies to SML Reactions, where Logan gives Behind the Scenes and facts when filming certain episodes. He currently uploads his current SML plush videos on the new SML channel, since March 2021. Logan used to be a good YouTuber during 2007-2016, but after Jeffy being overused starting from 2017, his channel started going downhill.

The original SML channel has been deleted, however on March 16, 2021, Thirtyacre announced that a channel originally created in 2012 was going to be used from then on.[3][4] A backup channel, originally created in 2008, also exists.[5][6]

Plot

Plush versions of Mario characters, and many non-Mario characters, have adventures at their home and at school.

Why It Deserves to Have Green Beans Now

  1. The biggest problem and main issue with the series nowadays is possibly none other than the infamous character, Jeffy. Despite being introduced in 2016, he kickstarted a ton of problems with the series and is at his worst in "Jeffy's Bad Word!" and "Locked Out," the two most infamous episodes involving Jeffy besides "Jeffy's Tantrum!." He is also the cause of one of the most terrifying negative-180's on the Internet. Most of his videos are simply rehashes of Bowser Jr's original videos as well. As time went on, he managed to spawn even more controversies to the channel, a notable quality throughout 2017. The moment where he crossed the line has to be in the infamous aforementioned "Jeffy’s Tantrum!" since the video almost caused a young boy to hang himself with a noose after seeing the video. This caused Thirtyacre's YouTube channel to get demonetized and age-restricted.[2]
    • This doesn't help by the fact that 2018 and 2020 have sped up the decline of SML, with 2020 being considered the worst year by fans, since it is made during the COVID-19 pandemic and many of the characters such as Cody didn't appear as much as they usually tend to, due to Pablo being on quarantine. 2020 in particular not only showed more misleading videos title-wise, but that year particularly showed that Logan idea tank was on low. Likewise, 2017 was also criticized for the over usage of Jeffy, and, as mentioned before, causing the channel getting entirely demonetized. 2018 was even more criticized due to the flanderization of numerous characters being sped up more than 2017 had, as well as the unlikability of already unlikeable characters like Jeffy being taken up to 11.
    • To an extent, 2021-onwards, while better than the aforementioned three years, introduced the "puppet" cast. The puppets were not very well-received. Even the designs themselves (except for a few such as Mario and Junior) hardly resembled the original plushies.
  2. A lot of main characters were more flanderized than they were in 2016, to the point where they became a cast of unsympathetic and unlikeable characters, with little to no redeeming qualities.
    • Mario went from being the down-to-earth everyman to becoming a massive henpecked husband Butt-Monkey, with lots of episodes dedicated to Jeffy, Rosalina, or some other character making Mario's life miserable. Also, he would become the clichéd idiot father ever since the episode, “Jeffy Skips School”, as well as becoming a somewhat greedy jerk who cares about money, particularly in 2020. However, he can still be considered innocent and sympathetic, depending on your point of view.
    • Rosalina herself suffered the absolute worst flanderization and one of the worst character derailments in the history of SML. She went from being the dumb but loving and kind girlfriend of Mario to an insensitive, excessively dull-witted, domineering wife who domestically abuses Mario and defends Jeffy for no good reason to the point where it's not only made clear that she considers spoiling children as good parenting, but it's also implied that she hates Mario and only stays with him for Jeffy. She also counts as one of the very worst examples of a Karma Houdini since bad things rarely happen to her, and she seldom gets any punishment for her actions other than being stressed.
    • Bowser Junior, beginning in 2019, became much more ruder and dumber to the point where he even developed sociopathic tendencies. He is also more crueler to Chef Pee Pee and Cody for little to no reason whatsoever.
    • Black Yoshi went from a badass and a cold-hearted gangster who held a gun everywhere he went and would mess up anyone who crossed him to an obnoxious whiny gangster-wannabe type character who always whines and complains to Mario about the new Call of Duty game. Despite this, he is still one of the most positively received characters of the channel.
    • In 2020, Joseph's already divisive character suffered character derailment when he got a red shell with wings. This made him become more of a jerk while being a bland and greedy stereotype on par with The Goodman Family in "Joseph the Millionaire!". He also developed sociopathic tendencies just like Junior and think everything around him is racist.
    • Mr. Goodman went from a slightly dim-witted yet hilarious and entertaining comic-relief character who was also kind and friendly to a tyrannical and short-tempered mob boss who claims to own Mario's house and extorts him with "house payments" while threatening to rip his genitals or nipples off if he doesn't pay. He also rarely (if ever) gets any comeuppance. He's basically Peter Griffin, Carter Pewterschmidt, Wizard Kelly and Mr. Krabs all combined into one whole character. In some videos he's in however he still has his funny moments.
      • In fact, Thirtyacre never actually revealed why Goodman suffered a massive flanderization. This made the situation a lot worse.
  3. The humor and writing has gone from being really funny, creative & entertaining, to lame, unfunny, & uncreative, which caused the channels to have so many bad-to-mediocre episodes (see the examples section below).
  4. Aside from Jeffy and the rest of the cast, the series started to introduce more bad and unlikable characters to these series and many characters who were already bad or good ended up getting worse, including:
    • Does Bad Things Guy
    • Cameel Habib Habab
    • Nancy
    • Scooter
    • Judy
    • Rosalina (though her flanderization started in 2016, it got worse from 2017 onwards)
    • Mario (post-flanderization, depending on your view)
    • Mr. Goodman (depending on your view)
    • BraD
    • Benjamin Goodman
    • Mrs. Goodman
    • Frank Goodman
    • Bully Bill
    • Feebee
    • The Huckerdoo Family
    • Barbara
    • Dewey Donedidit
    • Penelope
    • Steve Stalboerger (depending on your view)
    • Bowser Junior (post-flanderization)
    • Jeffy Jr. (2017)
    • Ping and Pong
    • Joseph
    • Officer Top & Bottom
    • Chris Tall Balls
    • Harry
    • Nigel
    • Tyler
    • Brooklyn T. Guy (post-flanderization)
    • Super D
    • Jeffy Junior (2020)
    • Roy Gethard
    • Karen
    • Jonathan
    • Muriel
    • Jacques mainly for faking his death when Jeffy was introduced, in which was the result of Jacques' money that originally was going to go to Jeffy when he turns 18. But since Jacques is still alive after 6 years, Marvin will have to suffer with Jeffy for the rest of his life.
    • The Plothole Goblin, which is ironic considering that multiple SML videos have plotholes in them.
    • Jeffica
  5. The characters never learn about their mistakes:
    • In "Jeffy's Parents," Jeffy promised Mario to be a good boy leading Mario to adopt him which made people hope he would redeem himself. However in the very next episode, "Inside Jeffy", it shows Jeffy acting like a brat again, which means Jeffy lied.
    • In "Mr. Goodman's Son!," which was Richard's first appearance, he literally makes an inspiring speech claiming that money cannot buy you important stuff like friends or happiness, which implied he would be the complete opposite of Goodman himself. However, in his next appearances, he behaves exactly like his father.
  6. From this era onwards, most of the videos are only about Jeffy, or if not Jeffy then Junior, which has had the effect of mostly pushing out characters that can't easily be placed in Jeffy and Junior videos.
    • Though Jeffy was only somewhat overused in 2016 because most of the videos were still Junior videos that have been overused since 2014.
    • In 2019 however, they tried to bring more focus on other characters but failed miserably, so in 2020-onwards, they didn't try to make other characters the focus of the video though there are exceptions.
  7. A large majority of the episodes nowadays have horrendous gross-out humor, mean-spirited characters, overused jokes, filler and/or lazy attempts at humor. Examples of these traits include:
    • The very overused running joke where Mario tries to feed Jeffy green beans because "they're good for him", but Jeffy always refuses to eat the green beans because he hates them, though that doesn't stop Mario from attempting to feed them to him.
    • Cody making Bowser Junior pull a very long sausage out of his mouth in "Heartbroken" (even though it's kind of funny depending on your view).
    • The incredibly racist and offensive running gag where Jackie Chu (the Chinese guy) "can't see" (even though in later years they have toned this down).
    • It also tended to overuse Bowser Junior calling Cody's mother a pig.
    • The gross and disgusting ending where Jeffy defecates in his pants at the ending of "Jeffy's 17th Birthday!".
    • The unfunny and former running gag where Jeffy asks a character if they’re "high" or saying that they’re "high as fuck", especially to Mario, and also especially in the ending of "Jeffy's Tantrum!".
    • Jeffy, in the earlier videos, defecating in his pants. We do not need to explain this.
    • Jeffy thinking his arms are missing in "Jeffy Loses His Arms" when they clearly aren't.
    • Nancy physically abusing Jeffy in front of Mario and Rosalina in "Jeffy's Parents".
    • Junior and Joseph accusing Cody of racism in "Cody's Bad Word".
    • A disgusting and unfunny gag in "Jeffy Gets Captured" where Rosalina farts on Mario's face twice and in the ending of the episode where she randomly lets out a loud fart.
    • The episode "Pregnant Jeffy" features Jeffy, who was sixteen at the time, actually getting pregnant, even though it's illegal for minors to have sex(due to the videos being filmed in Florida, where the age of consent is 18). Fortunately that latter part didn't happen, as what happened was that Jeffy got zapped by a gun that can impregnate anyone.
    • One disgusting moment where Brooklyn T. Guy farts in front of Mario and Rosalina in "Jealous Brooklyn Guy!".
    • The infamous scene where Cody defecates his pants after eating Mexican food in "Bowser Junior Learns Spanish", which is pretty stereotypical.
    • In both "Bowser Junior Almost Goes to Sleep Forever" and "Joseph the Hero", Chef PP/Joseph save a characters' life and makes them a slave right after, and if the character refuses to do their command, the abuser says they should've let the slave die.
    • Jeffy dresses up as Mario in "Jeffy's Future" and mimics everything he says for no reason.
    • In "Jeffy Goes to the Arcade", Jeffy somehow gets himself in the crane machine, and there is a four-minute scene of Mario and Brooklyn Guy trying to get him out.
      • Not just those problems, but many catchphrases are overused too such as Jeffy often saying "I don't have to" in a weird voice, Richard shouting 'Eww, poor!" and Mario screaming "JEFFY!"
    • Throughout a lot of the videos in 2020, there's an overused gag of one of the characters singing a rap song. While this is good only a few times, jokes like these get overused after a while.
  8. Some videos can have good first halves but have bad second halves (eg. The DNA Test or Chef Pee Pee’s New Job), leading to the disappointment of many, and is an example of bad writing.
    • Some episodes even rely entirely on one joke, such as Chef Pee Pee peeing things that sound like the word “P” in Chef Pee Pee Pees Peas”, Junior being mad at Cody in The School Project, Cody getting beat up by the police in Cody’s Evil Twin or Bowser Jr. breaking cups and plates and blaming it on gravity in Gravity.
  9. Jeffy also never learns his lesson or finds any problems with the trouble he causes, no matter what. He promised to be a good boy at the ending of Jeffy's Parents, but in the very next video starring him, Inside Jeffy, he annoys Mario for the whole video, meaning he learned nothing.
  10. Some videos have segments that have pretty bad animation. The best example of this is Jeffy's Sleepover, where the animation was used in Brooklyn Guy's story, which doesn't help the fact it was animated by Nicktendo (not to be confused with reviewer NICKtendo). Though Nicktendo might’ve improved in his later years, this may be quite unacceptable.
    • Also the animation doesn't look that good, as the animation is very stiff and the character designs do not look that great.
  11. Many videos have misleading titles, like "Jeffy Loses His Arms", "Jeffy Plays Baseball", "Chef Jeffy", "Jeffy's Online School" & "Jeffy Almost Drowns". These videos only have Jeffy's name in the title to get more views.
  12. There is never any character development. One example is in Jeffy's Paper Shredder, where Goodman says he paid off Mario's house payment for him, but in Goodman's next video, he wants Mario to pay him again, making this development completely pointless.
  13. Some videos involve the character mocking the fans (ex: "Jeffy's TV Show")
    • In fact one of the blogs on Chilly's channel, which was the video where SuperMarioLogan promised to get rid of Jeffy after getting his ads back, but he took the promise out of context, also showed them mocking their older fans.
  14. One of the main criticisms of these years is that pretty much everyone tends to bully and torture Mario for petty and unfair reasons to the point were it's completely understandable why Mario is usually selfish and childish: his "friends" and family are always being mean to him first. It's to the point that Logan comes off as a sadist who derives perverse pleasure from torturing Mario.
    • To make matters worse, what doesn't help is that Rosalina is starting to become a Butt-Monkey now.
  15. Introduced in "The Human Potion", Bowser Jr, Joseph, Cody and Bowser all turn into very unappealing human puppets. Mario, Rosalina, and Bully Bill also receive bad human puppet redesigns in “Jeffy's New Friend”. Despite how poorly received the human puppets was, they appeared in a few future videos. The purpose of this episode was to accommodate YouTube's new regulations on family-friendly characters at the time.
  16. As mentioned above, the entire SML channel became demonetized in 2018 simply, or possibly because of one character: Jeffy. The problem is, Craig the Devil was instead blamed for the demonetization despite barely appearing in the series by that time period.
  17. Most episodes encourage you to do bad things, such as:
    • Bullying
    • Lying frequently/scamming others
    • Stealing things
    • Framing people
    • Crying for attention
    • Blackmail others
    • Doing horrible things on purpose
    • Breaking things/damaging property
    • Not being responsible
    • Not listening to people
    • Being ignorant and oblivious to others
    • Submitting to and agree with an abusive relationship with someone
    • Cheating on your husband/wife or Justify it
    • Neglecting others needs and wants
    • Being racist
    • Taking advantage of others
    • Breaking rules
    • Being lazy
    • Kidnapping
    • Spoiling your own child
      • Or, the other way around, punishing your kids too harsh
    • Not learning from your mistakes
    • Lacking empathy and common sense
    • Assume boys are better than Girls or vice versa
    • Being a Helicopter parent/boyfriend/girlfriend
    • Letting people walk over you
    • Using someone as a prop
    • Being greedy and selfish
  18. Many episodes have terrible endings like "Jeffy the Psychic" and "Jeffy Wins the Lottery". In fact, most Bowser Junior-centered episodes always have him and/or his friends losing at the end, which can be pretty repetitive and mean-spirited despite the fact they are all unlikable characters.
  19. It overuses stock sound effects, partially ones from the likes of Hanna-Barbera.
  20. The episode "Jeffy's Kids" was so controversial and disturbing for YouTube that SML became age-restricted. SML's advertisements were also taken away, but after they were given back to Thirtyacre, he went back to his inappropriate content. This shows that he did not learn his lesson.
  21. While it's normal for a show like this to get unrealistic, they execute it properly. Some episodes are just too unrealistic to be considered legal.
    • For example, "Jeffy's Pet Shark" is about Jeffy getting a pet shark, which screams a total of 7 times in this episode. Sharks cannot scream, because they have no vocal cords. It is also somehow able to breathe on land, and likes human food, most infamously cheese (which is like a dog liking chocolate).
  22. Many of the episodes have a question that is based off the plot of the episode, but in the bottom it reads "Funniest comment wins a free video game!". But many of the episodes show it, even for sad ones which is rather not an appropriate time to add it.
    • For example in "Jeffy Fakes His Death!" it has the question "Who is one person that you never want to die?" which is a rather sad question since it was supposed to be for people to remember their friend/pet/family member that died. But the bottom text is inappropriately put there despite the fact that death is not funny.
  23. In recent times, there is a lot of shameless self-promoting product placement for the SuperMarioLogan merchandise including in the end of videos nowadays. They even go as far as making entire episodes dedicated to promoting merchandise.
  24. Recently in the modern videos, the soundtrack called "Earthy Crust" by Jingle Punks, became way too overused in the channel as it constantly appears on moments that aren't even that dramatic, or just starts playing out of the blue, which is off-putting, annoying and ridiculous, considering the fact that the soundtrack sounds more like the end of the world than a normal suspense strike and drags on for too long. Not to mention, but there are videos where the soundtrack played more than once or twice. Even moments that were meant to be funny get sadly ruined by this soundtrack. It's almost like the channel is desperately trying hard to be edgy and gain attention.
    • It's brother channel, Titototter, isn't any better, if not worse, as it is obsessed with the soundtrack and abuses it roughly 5 or more times, which is played prematurely during moments when a character simply scream, or when something unexpected happens (especially when Sonic notices he's wearing a sailor suit), or even when it's not even that dramatic (Adna simply giving Monkey a banana), which comes off sometimes as unfitting and unnecessary.
  25. Despite making the transition into making family-friendly content, there are still lots of rather inappropriate things, such as the "Si Papi" running gag, which is known as a sex joke.
  26. The series has straight-up abandoned most of its side series ending them all on an unresolved cliff-hanger, many of which are likely never going to return because of the Cease and Desist letter from Nintendo. (Like the Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures, Luigi's Mansion, and The Pokémon Series as it includes characters from Nintendo properties) Examples include:
    • Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures
    • Chef Pee Pee Quits
    • Luigi's Mansion
    • The Pokémon Series
    • American Idol
  27. During 2019, both Chilly and Logan cheated on each other. Causing many of his fans to get mad at them, they also dislike bombed Chilly's new boyfriend's channel just for being with her. However, they are now friends again as of 2021, so at least there's that.
  28. Thanks to YouTube's new rules, Logan himself had to get rid of certain characters due to him thinking that they would violate YouTube's Community Guidelines.
    • Doofy the Dragon stopped appearing in future videos due to his suicide jokes, until he reappeared in "Jeffy Ball Z" (and its sequel).
  29. Some videos don't have any disclaimers in the beginning of the video. For example, the infamous episode "Jeffy's Tantrum" doesn't have any NSFL warnings despite having a scene where Jeffy tries to hang himself over a $3 game.
    • Because of this, it lead to a seven-year-old child actually attempting to hang himself the way Jeffy almost did in this video. The mother discovered her son and that he was inspired by SuperMarioLogan, so she banned him from watching it. She then reported it to a news station called The Sun. While it is true that it wasn't Logan's fault that the child tried to imitate Jeffy and that the mother should have watched what he was watching, Logan should of at least put a warning at the beginning of the video to make sure that stuff like this does not happen.
  30. Most of the new channel remakes are mediocre at best and have several issues that keep them from being effective recreations of the originals, like unnecessary extra scenes, deleted scenes, inaccurate pacing, and for some reason removing profanity/explicit jokes (in spite of other recent videos on the channel featuring some profanity, like "Jeffy's Good Day!")
  31. On February 5, 2021, Logan received a cease and desist letter from Nintendo of America for using the Mario brand in a raunchy humour environment and misdirecting his audience. As a result, Logan announced that he would no longer use Mario characters in his videos and instead switch to the human puppets thus making them a permanent change. He also changed the channel name simply to SML to avoid any connections with the Mario franchise. Some people suspect the letter to be fake thinking that Logan is lying to his fans, but that wasn't the case as the letter turns out to actually be real. Though once again, many still believe the letter is fake that probably might’ve been printed either by a hater, Chilly, or Logan's second ex-girlfriend Adriana, all to make him squirm. This could lead to Logan's reputation dying for good if the videos don't involve Jeffy in them.
    • What makes this situation worse is that back in May, Logan revealed that he would delete his previous three main channels on June 1, 2021 and would be forced to use only the human puppets in his current channel. This has understandably left old and new fans upset but fortunately various reuploads of his content have been made. Plus, the channels weren't deleted on the day.
    • However, on July 7, 2021, Logan made a video on the SML Plush Show channel saying it would be deleted the following day and that SLL and SBL would be deleted in the following months. SML Plush Show was deleted as planned on July 8, 2021, and all the videos on SLL were private the following month.
  32. Ironically, many years later Logan would follow Nintendo's route of filing cease and desists to fan creators who use his characters, such as the "Here's Jeffy" channel in 2024.
  33. As of 2021, there is a bad habit of the cast members laughing during a scene of an episode. This is a problem due to looking lazy and unprofessional and in hindsight it just makes the scene awkward and cringy rather than funny.
  34. Adding on to the previous reason, the newer videos often tend to unnecessary include bloopers/mistakes in which the characters and actors go out of character, which clearly isn't supposed to be in the video originally, and most of the time they tend to be filler as well.
    • They are better off being included in the behind the scenes videos or at the end of the video.
  35. Many of the videos tend to have plotholes and continuity errors in them.
    • One example would be in "Logan Tries To See The Super Marvin Movie!" in which the SuperMarioLogan crew goes to the movie theater, for some reason the puppets that they control are somehow alive and have their own lives, even though they are shown at the beginning to be controlled by the puppeteers.
  36. They sometimes like to appeal to the latest trends such as "Jeffy Plays Fortnite" (despite being a decent video) which was released in early 2018, "Jeffy's Fidget Spinner" uploaded in mid-2017, "Among Us" (despite being a great video) released in late 2020, "Squid Game" (despite also being a great video) released in October of 2021, etc.
    • They even tend to cash in on controversial or unfunny events either by making references to them or videos wholly dedicated to them. Examples include "Jeffy the Boxer", "Bowser Junior's Big Discovery", "Junior's Submarine", and "Scooter's Birthday".
  37. Overall, Modern SML basically feels like the web equivalent of modern Family Guy with them jumping the shark, the writing being downgraded to mediocrity, some (or many) characters being flanderized, teaching bad life lessons morals, containing many offensive and unfunny jokes and subjecting certain characters to needless torture while trying to portray the one being tortured as somehow having done something to deserve it (even if it was just expressing a personal opinion because having a different opinion is the equivalent of being Satan, it seems).

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The channel used to be good before Jeffy was overused.
  2. Some of the jokes are funny like in Jeffy's Taco Tuesday and Chef Pee Pee Pees Peas and in "Bowser Junior's Cookie Crisp" where Bowser Junior made the promo illegal by using other companies catchphrases.
  3. The bonus content outside of the main channel like the BTS videos, Meet the Cast videos and reaction videos are still fun to watch.
  4. Sometimes episodes do have good morals, for example, "Mr. Goodman's Son" has a good moral, the moral being "Money can't buy you everything" (even though Goodman didn't see it that way, and slapped his son Richard for saying such a thing), "Fat Jeffy" where the moral is to always eat your vegetables, and "The Test!", where the moral is to not cheat on your test.
  5. There are still a handful of good/decent episodes, including:

  6. Some characters are still enjoyable including:
    • Craig
    • Richard Goodman
    • Chef Pee Pee
    • Woody (despite no longer appearing)
    • Jackie Chu
    • Bowser Junior (from 2017 to late 2019, before his flanderization, 2023-present, depending on your POV)
    • Mama Luigi (despite only appearing once this era)
    • Brooklyn T. Guy (from 2017 to mid 2022, before his flanderization)
    • Cody
    • Harold Wilfred
    • Luigi (despite only appearing in one modern video "Jeffy's Ghost" and being a hypocritical ghost hunter due to his fear of ghosts)
    • Toad
    • Simmons
    • Dr. Fredrick Finklesheetz
    • God
    • Black Yoshi (despite his flanderization)

    • Chives
    • Patrick
    • Judge Pooby
    • Principal Steinbeck (despite only appearing twice this era)
    • Tony the Tiger (despite no longer appearing)
      • Even the bad characters can be likable in some episodes, for example, Jeffy is likable in episodes such as, "Jeffy the Rapper (and it's sequel)".
      • Despite their aforementioned flanderization, Goodman, Mario & Brooklyn Guy can still be considered fairly enjoyable depending on your view.
  7. Though rarely, there is sometimes character development in the series:
    • Despite still having his flaws and is still diverse amongst the fanbase, Jeffy has been somewhat been improving since 2019, as many of his recurring jokes have either been a lot less repetitive than they were in 2016-2018 (though he still has some repetitive gags like "Si Papi" and "I don't have to) or have been phased out entirely, and he can even be aware of how asinine he is.
    • Bowser Junior was one for the few characters who got character development starting in 2016 and actually got some redemption to the point he could be considered likable for the most part. Though sadly, he did get flanderized beginning with 2019. However, depending on your POV, he slightly improved in 2023.
    • Fortunately, since around 2022, Mario, Cody and Chef Pee Pee have had way less torture episodes since then, meaning that their Butt-Monkey roles have dialed down massively. Unfortunately though, Rosalina has started to become a punching bag.
  8. Most of the songs are pretty good and the beats are well made, especially since 2020, like:
    • Get Hunky
    • We Need That Mustache
    • Booty Booty
    • Toys R Us Is Back
    • I Got Many Jobs
    • The Cookie Crisp Song
    • Sit On My Face
    • Twerk It Again
    • The Backdoor Boys
    • Wake Yo Braindead Ass Up
    • Monster Mash
    • I Really Love Cody
    • Tonight
  9. The voice-acting is still very good (except for Elaina Keyes as Penelope, Karen, and Rosalina when she is yelling), most notably on Brooklyn T. Guy, Mr. Goodman, Cody, Mario, Bowser Junior, Joseph, etc.
  10. The series still has its action scenes, most of which are still very good (examples: The climax of "Attack of the Killer Shrimp", the second half of "The South Pole Santa", the beginning of "The Cookie Jar", & the car chase scene in both "Jeffy's 18th Birthday" & "Jeffy's 19th Birthday").
  11. Some episodes have some throwbacks to older videos. Most notably "Bowser Junior’s 11th Birthday", and "Jeffy the Pirate".
  12. The camerawork and the lighting has noticeably improved, with the series notably transitioning fully to HD and looking a lot better as a result.
  13. While most of the years have been bad or mediocre, not all of them are completely bad. Some of them can be considered average or decent:
    • Before Jeffy's Tantrum, 2017 was more mediocre than bad.
    • While it has its flaws, 2019 is probably the best year out of these years, since it had less bad videos compared to others. It has some videos that are widely considered to be the best in the series, such as "Junior's 11th Birthday" and especially "Black Yoshi's Kool-Aid Problem". Also some of the other characters were getting the spotlight again.
    • Even though 2021 is still a bad year for the channel, it is a slight improvement over 2020 as the channel started to make more good videos despite a few bad ones like "The Pink Couch", "Don't Tell Goodman", & "Brooklyn Guy's Thanksgiving". Also, since the Human Puppets became a permanent stay on the channel, they made the characters swear again.
      • This can be noted on how most of the videos are getting longer and having more good plot ideas, Pablo coming fully back, and most notably how they began using more of the other major characters in the spotlight.
    • 2022 & 2023 are slight improvements over 2020 & 2021, since there are a lot more good/great videos in comparison, especially during August for both of their consecutive years. It also has a few videos that are widely considered to be the best in the series, such as "Jeffy's 18th Birthday", "The Film Project", "The Jeffy Ball Z Series, "Air Bud", & "Junior's Big Playtime".
  14. Ever since 2020, there would be more new locations, such as the Forest, the North Pole Penitentiary Prison, the City Prison, etc. This could help make less uneventful videos taking place in only one location.

Reception

Even though there are still a handful of fans who still like SuperMarioLogan, most fans gave this era a mixed to mostly negative reception, due to the flanderization of several characters, the writing being downgraded to mediocrity, the jokes getting way more disgusting and immature, and the overuse of Jeffy. This era is sometimes referred to as "The Jeffy Era" by fans. Not only did SML lose a lot of old fans because of this era (such as YouTuber Yoshi Player, who reviewed the show until 2016), but SML also became one of the most controversial YouTubers of all time because of this. Despite this though, SML still has a large fan base with kids and SML soon became one of the fastest-growing plush channels during this era, with its main channel reaching 9.63 million subscribers prior to it's deletion in 2021.

Lawsuit

In February of 2021, Logan received a letter from a lawyer from Nintendo of America stating that he had to cease all use of Nintendo plushies such as Mario or Bowser due to them being used in obscene videos, or Nintendo of America would sue him, meaning that he had to switch to his human puppets, which his fans strongly disliked. As another result of this, Logan stated that he had to forcefully take down his original YouTube channel, which happened on July 8, 2021.

False flagging incident

In early 2018, Logan found both the SML and SLL channels getting demonetized to the point where new videos were being instantly confirmed by manual review. In late April and early May of 2018, fans discovered the demonetization spree was being caused by a group of disgruntled fans that were reporting many videos on both channels, all led by a user named SkipDip. SkipDip stated that his motives were to force Logan to admit he had "scammed" people on Patreon and to force him to stop using Jeffy and Junior due to them being the focus of nearly every modern SML video. He claimed that by using those characters and rarely using Shrek, Black Yoshi and other older characters, Logan was "insulting" fans of the older videos and not caring for them even though Black Yoshi still appeared semi-frequently and Shrek still got a few videos per year. A massive flame war broke out as a result, as some fans actually supported SkipDip's motives. Other independent users also mass-reported videos either to troll Logan or because they were overzealous moral guardians trying to "protect" children. As a result, it would take until August of that year for the demonetization spree to calm down.
