    I’ve gotten into the minus world on a US version of SMB. It’s not 3 levels. It’s one. Its a water level and you can’t get out. I have no idea about a Japanese version.

    The U.S. version of SMB 2 had Mario in blue overalls with a red shirt. The box art had the colors reversed and put white gloves on him. That is the earliest reference I could find to the cartoonish Mario you mentioned.
