Does anyone know if Super Mario World was really under development for Famicom or NES?

Well, the "subtitle" is Super Mario Bros. 4, so it is a sequel to SMB3, but I personally don't think it was ever planned or in development for the Famicom.

I don't think it's too outlandish to believe so.  SMB3 was released in '88 and SMW was released in '90.  Nintendo may have very well been working on SMW for the FC and decided to take their ideas to the SFC instead.

A thread over at RHDN mentions that there may have been a Monster Party FC prototype:

There's a scan of a screenshot of the title screen in the link posted by the OP.  Anyone know anything about this?

RE: JC - Super Mario World

I remember seeing some screens from this version of Super Mario World a few years ago. They were of the map, which looked much different. The game also seemed to have pretty decent looking graphics from what I saw. The article mentioned that the game was planned for release on the Famicom, but scrapped for the Super Famicom. I believe that it also mentioned that the game used a special graphics chip, or something to that effect.

Looks that way.  Square released Aliens for the MSX and this looks to be a port of the same game:

If you know of any games slated for release on the Famicom and then scrapped, let us know.

(...)
Nintendo Facemaker (confirmed shown in Miyamoto Wii presentation)
Rolltris (confirmed advertised on back of C&E cart)
Strider Hiryu (confirmed advertised in Japanese television commercial)
(...)

Do you have a scan of the back label ?

"Rumor has it that there is a new Mario coming on the scene for you die-hard 8-bit Nintendo fans. We've heard whisperings that Super Mario 4 for the original NES system will be out sometime in 1992. No confirmation yet from Nintendo yet, but we'll keep our ears open." - Game Informer Jan/Feb 1992 (pg 17).

It's funny, Nintendo did something similar years down the road.  Super Mario FX was going to be one of the last SNES games but they took the project and moved to the then Ultra 64 and made Super Mario 64 instead.

You know, I don't think Super Mario FX was ever in development. I think it was just a hoax. Prove me wrong, internet!

What about Wakusei Aton Gaiden for the FDS? Wikipedia Japan has it listed in it's FDS catalog but I heard somewhere it was never actually released.
