Storyline

Way out in space, on another world whose population is contented, one of its people decides that travel broadens the mind and relieves boredom. So, he flies to Earth in hope of helping the alien Earthlings improve their lot, only to cause panic and be declared a monster just because he looks different. So, he decides to return home, where, at least, he can find love. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Not a great cartoon but interesting
1 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While I am a fan of Chuck Jones and most of his cartoons, Martian Through Georgia doesn't see him at his best. That's not to say it's bad, the animation is eye-popping in colour and detail with character designs that are really quite unique. The standout was in the beginning, the expressionistic look was perfect for life on Mars. The music is vibrantly orchestrated and has a lot of character too, it does give energy to Martian Through Georgia that I don't think were there in the gags. The cartoon also begins very strongly, and Mel Blanc's voice acting is solid as rocks. Sadly, the story and humour never really catches fire. The story is certainly interesting enough in its idea, I just think that the Martian's adventures on Earth takes too much of the running time(they were interesting to see but not particularly fun, memorable or exciting), while the pacing lacked snap and excitement. And some of it feels confused and as though the cartoon is trying to do too much. Martian Through Georgia doesn't really have much that is funny let alone hilarious and the narration is not just annoying but doesn't always make sense either. The Martian is a likable titular character, just not a particularly compelling one. The ending also felt abrupt. To conclude, a cartoon that interests and one that is neither great or awful, just kind of a mixed bag. 5/10 Bethany Cox
