Mushrooms & Morons: Hunt for the Egg of Draconius GO is the first episode of Season 8 and the three hundred and eighty-eight overall to be uploaded by SMG4.
This episode was aired on January 6, 2018.
Mario and friends are off once again on an epic quest to find the RAREST item in all of the land.
The episode starts with the team in a bar (with Luigi looking pretty wasted) as Mario walks in holding a scaly green egg. He asks Toad to make a fire to cook it, but Mario gets his head lit on fire instead. After being extinguished by Bowser, the egg begins to rumble. After some bickering, Toad destroyed the egg. This causes SMG4 to send an obelisk to which Mario sacrifices Toad to obtain the Draconius GO tablet.
They set off in the direction the tablet sends them in, and the hunt for the golden egg begins. After a montage, Mario, Toad, Luigi and Bowser reach a cave with a troll guarding the entrance. Bowser sneaks by with a fern on his head, Toad sneaks by as a rock, Luigi just straight up runs, but Mario gets blown up, causing the troll to run into the cave. Toad casts a sexify spell, turning a nearby cactus into an illusion of Picolas Cage.
They then go into the cave and battle spiders. After a battle with all the spiders dying, Toad] gets them out of the cave. The only problem is that he sent them to another dimension. Mario starts to ride a tentacle, but Luigi forces Toad to get Mario down. This causes a tentacle monster to attack. Toad casts another spell, and with a missile, they randomly land on the spot where the egg was. Their prize? An afternoon of "fun" with Fishy Boopkins, resulting in each and every one of the characters leaving.
