Animation's crowning achievement
10 March 2006 | by (Blue Mountains, Australia) – See all my reviews

This and Duck Dodgers etc. are the two cartoons which have stuck in my mind since I first saw them over 40 years ago, though I didn't know the correct title until I thought of doing a search on 'Marvin Martian'. The last time I saw both was on 'The Bugs Bunny Show', which quite often - mostly, perhaps? - didn't include titles.

I suspect that you have to be 40 years of age or older to really appreciate this cartoon, which encapsulates the entire 1950s into it's length. The Cold War, the Bomb, Modern Art, the approaching leap into Space, even the fashions and colors, are worked into the 7 minutes.

In short, it's Warners Bros' supreme achieve in animation, and a fitting tribute to the Great Mel Blanc, not forgetting all those other geniuses whose names appear on the credits.

If I was limited to one item of movie media on a desert island, this would be my selection. Believe it :) !
