A brilliant example of Noble & Jones' work
29 October 2008 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

If anyone at Termite Terrace could put together a classic sci-fi cartoon, it was Chuck Jones and Maurice Noble, the creative team behind 'Duck Dodgers', 'Mad as a Mars Hare', and of course 'Martian through Georgia'.

The story shows a young alien (though he is called a Martian in the 'toon, it was never established that he was from Mars) whom has become incredibly bored with his home planet. Advised to travel and broaden his horizons, the little Martian comes across Earth, and realizes that here he can be happy. Of course, the people of Earth only see him as a monster and freak out. What makes this cartoon so special is that the little Martian doesn't realize that HE is the monster, and decides to help the Earth out by finding and destroying the monster!

The design and layout of 'Martian Through Georgia' is a prime-example of Jones and Noble's talent, showcasing eye-popping color, beautiful backgrounds, and a great storyline that Jones himself help write ( this 'toon is a rare exception where Michael Maltese, Jones' #1 writer, is nowhere to be found).

A classic 'toon that deserves an honored spot on any collector's list, 'Martian through Georgia' is amazing work from one of the best teams at Termite Terrace. Be sure to check it out!
