"That's Mama Luigi to you, Mario! *wheeze*"
- Date Discovered: 2008

Mama Luigi is a YouTube Poop meme, being one of the more popular subjects of YouTube Poop videos. It is mostly popular for its infamous quote of Luigi addressing himself as "Mama Luigi" and more importantly, the wheeze onomatopoeia at the end of his sentence. Since its rise to popularity, it has spawned mini-memes such as "Or was it the bagel?"
The Mama Luigi meme came from the final episode of the long-cancelled 90's cartoon, "Super Mario World", going by the same name of the meme. The episode consists of Luigi telling Yoshi a bedtime story about how he, Mario and Princess Toadstool met Yoshi. Shortly after finding Yoshi, Yoshi began calling Luigi "Mama Luigi" as a term of endearment, much to Luigi's dismay.
After being uploaded to YouTube, the first YouTube Poop was created and thus started the trend.
