The Mario Paint BS Ban (Broadcasting Satellite version) was a special, discontinued version of Mario Paint for the Japan-only Super Famicom's add-on, the Satellaview.

The game is based on the original Mario Paint, but has a small addition/change to give it joypad support (the original could only be controlled with SNES Mouse). This series of Mario Paint variations, introduced an art contest that began in November 1997.

Mario Paint Yuushou Naizou Ban[edit]

A winning picture from the contest, known as "Tsume o Yumemite" (月を夢見て) meaning "Dreaming of the Moon" would also be featured in a follow-up to the original BS Ban revision; known as Mario Paint Yuushou Naizou Ban (マリオペイント優勝内蔵版) - possible translation; Mario Paint Championship Insider Version.
