Super Mario Kart is a wacky SNES racing game featuring Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and many other characters from the Mario universe. This classic was the beginning of the Mario Kart series that started more or less the whole trend of "Mascot Racers".
In the Japanese version, Bowser's and Princess Peach's victory animations depict them drinking champagne. Nintendo of America's policies at the time did not allow depictions of drinking in games, so the animations had to be changed accordingly. These changes were kept for the European release.
Bowser's victory pose originally showed him chugging the champagne. He just poses happily with it in the international versions.
In the Japanese version, Princess Peach daintily sips her champagne, although the shading on her face says she might already be drunk. In the international versions, she tosses it in the air.
