Is it possible to jump over the flag-pole in Super Mario Bros?

When I was younger, I remember there was a persistent rumour that claimed that under certain circumstances it was possible to jump completely over the flagpole at the end of each level.

Every time I jump for the flagpole and my 5000 points, I still remember this and wonder about it. On a few occasions, it seems as though I’m about to make it! Mario is on course to leap to freedom! However I always find myself “pulled” back to the top of the flagpole.

Is there any way to completely clear the flagpole at the end of a level?


Yes, with a little practice you can easily jump over the flag pole on level 3-3:

But wait… there’s more!

Contrary to popular belief, it can also be done on level 1-1 as Mike describes in this video:
