I'd have to say Mario is more popular because i saw a show about computer games on Discovery and they asked people the same question you are asking here and most of them answered Super Mario.

Micky Mouse. If you haven't mention Super Mario, I wouldn't have thought of him even though I kept playing the Super Mario game when I was young. Disney and Mickey are very well marketed and that could be the reason why they are more popular and well-remembered.

I would have to say Mickey Mouse is more popular than Mario. Due to Disneyland and Disney World and all the mickey movies,t-shirts,toys and tons of other stuff. I think Mickey has also been around a lot longer than mario.

This is very easy. hands down it is Mickey Mouse. Mickey has been a part of us since the late 1920's and up to know he is famous. There are theme parks, toys, games and so many things around us that has been influenced by the trademark. Super Mario would probably have an edge on Mickey on the gaming scene.
