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>

Too much talk not enough jokes
28 December 2003 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Sent to Mars in place of a human, the expendable Bugs Bunny arrives to find Marvin the alien on Mars and not to happy to have the company and immediately greets him armed to the teeth with space age ray guns.

It's been a while since I have seen a Bugs Bunny cartoon with Marvin and this film was welcome to me for that reason. However this film is not very good. The first half of the film seems to be mostly talk - Marvin explaining himself and then Bugs filling in the audience as to why he was put on a rocket by NASA. The problem is that this isn't very funny and it takes up half the time of the film!

The rest of the film really only consists of two gags around the use of the ray gun, and these aren't that funny either. Bugs is also not himself - he isn't given the chance to do any real trickery and the punchline betrays his character totally. Marvin is OK and does his `that makes me very angry' line a few times, but he can't carry the short.

Overall this cartoon is a shame because it is a missed opportunity - both Bugs and Marvin are funny and have made some good cartoons together; sadly this isn't one of them.
