Storyline

Marvin Martian is monitoring through his telescope a rocket launch on Earth. The rocket heads straight for him and lands on Mars. The only occupant is Bugs Bunny, lured into Cape Canaveral by a carrot and sent to Mars as an expendable "astro-rabbit". Bugs is to claim Mars in the name of the Earth, but Marvin won't allow an Earth creature to contaminate his atmosphere. He trains a time-projector gun on Bugs and reverts the bunny to a Neanderthal Rabbit, who crushes Marvin with one hand. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Reverse the descriptions of Siberia and Miami Beach, please.
11 February 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I have read about how Warner Bros. closed the Looney Tunes department in 1963. That might have actually been a good choice, considering that they seemed to be running a little short of ideas by then. In "Mad as a Mars Hare", Bugs Bunny gets sent to Mars as an expendable astro-rabbit, but Marvin the Martian has no desire to have anyone else on his planet and starts plotting to get rid of Bugs.

Whereas previous Bugs-Marvin pairings focused on Bugs's gags aimed at Marvin, this one has a little too much talk. Don't get me wrong; any Chuck Jones cartoon is a good one - at least the ones that I've seen - but it seems like they could have had more than just the characters explaining their stories. And if I may say so, I must challenge what Bugs said about Mars making Siberia look like Miami Beach. I spent last autumn in Yekaterinburg, Russia (near Siberia) and had a great time there. Everything that I've heard about Miami and it's surrounding area make it sound very undesirable. If it makes me some sort of weirdo to prefer part of Russia to part of America, then so be it.

Anyway, "MAAMH" is an OK cartoon, but not great.
