Goofs

If Bugs Bunny walked on the moon, he would weigh 6 times less than on Earth, he would be able to bounce around on the moon, this is due to the moons gravity being much lighter than Earths gravity. Since it shows Bugs Bunny walking, he would bounce a lot. Also, after the moon gets blown up. Bugs Bunny, Marvin the Martian and his alien dog wouldn't be hanging on for dear life, but they would actually float around helplessly in space. See more »

Introducing Marvin
24 November 2004 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

In this notable short we first see Marvin the Martian when Bugs Bunny lured by NASA with a cargo load of carrots, gets into a rocket ship destined for the moon. Once there it's up to Bugs to foil Marvin's mission to destroy Earth. This is yet another classic Looney Tunes short. Perhaps my judgment is shewed as I like the Marvin character and his alien-dog side-kick. However all the jokes worked for me, even if there were a few less of them than usual. I would definitely put this one up there with the best Bugs Bunny-based looney Tunes shorts. This cartoon is on Disk 3 of the "Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 1" It also has an optional commentary

My Grade: A-
