Complete credited cast:
Bugs Bunny / Marvin the Martian / I. Frisby / Trumpet Sound (voice)


A fey Martian commander, traveling with his faithful green dog-soldier, K-9, lands his flying saucer on planet Earth and opens his sealed orders from Commanding General E.=McSquared at Martian Headquarters: "Bring back one (1) live earth creature." Armed with his disintegrating pistol, strait-jacket-ejecting bazooka and an unquestioned assumption of his own superiority, the Martian believes he'll have no trouble. Unfortunately, the earth creature he chooses is the wily Bugs Bunny, who at first mistakes the diminutive spaceman and his companion as Trick-or-Treaters. Bugs nearly flips when he see the enormous spaceship, but quickly regains his composure and seizes control of the situation. In fact, he seizes control of the ship, making the little Martin "very, very angry indeed." Written by J. Spurlin

Delightful Bugs vs. Marvin the Martian cartoon
21 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love Looney Tunes, I love Bugs Bunny and I love Marvin the Martian, so this was a sheer delight. If I had a minor quibble, it would be the ending wasn't as strong as the rest of the cartoon, but The Hasty Hare is still hugely enjoyable. The animation is simply terrific, particularly the colourful backgrounds and on Marvin. The music is rousing, the dialogue is razor sharp, the gags all work and are delivered thick and fast, the pacing is spot on and the story is a nice one to work from. Bugs is the star of the show, but Marvin is superb and the dog is funny and a relevant character too. To top it all, Mel Blanc's vocals are brilliant. Overall, delightful. 9.5/10 Bethany Cox
