My FAVORITE Martian!!

I've joined the:
Join The Geek Twins My Favorite Martian Blog Hop

In this bloghop, we name our most favorite martian... Mine, is Marvin the Martian.  I know, not a 'person' but he is an alian individual (right?)

See, when I was growing up, we did watch SciFi, but it was Planet of the Apes, Star Trek and the like.  I myself, mostly watched cartoons. (I left home at 16, and I didn't have the "family movie nights" that are normal in my home.

Marvin comes from Mars, but you rarely find him there.  He is joined by his dog K-9
and sometimes others.

He's known for his quotes:
"Where's the kaboom? There was supposed to be an Earth-shattering kaboom!"
"Isn't that lovely?"
and "This makes me very angry, very angry indeed."

Marvins goal was to destroy the earth in many episodes, he used is "Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator" (sometimes pronounced "Illudium Pu-36")  which resembles a stick of dynamite.

Marvins reason for destroying the earth?  "It obstructs my view of Venus"
He's been trying to destroy Earth for 2 millenia, however, he's forever stopped by Bugs Bunny.

Marvin appeared in:
Baby Looney Tunes,
Duck Dodgers
The Looney Tunes Show.
Tiny Toon Adventures  in a segment entitled "Duck Dodgers Jr.," where he is accompanied by an apprentice named "Marcia the Martian."

I found a rare picture of them together for you

He also appears in the Taz-Mania episode The Man from M.A.R.S. and makes a cameo in The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries ("What's the Frequency, Kitty?").

Marvin also made appearances on Animaniacs along with his dog K-9 
And most recently in a MetLife commercial.

I'd love for you to


  1. Marvin had one of the best designs for any animated character, Looney Tunes or otherwise. And he was a great character, too!

  2. Great minds think alike. Marvin was my choice as well. It's good to see the fondness reaching the red planet. :-)

  3. Isn't that lovely? Wonderful pick for the Martian blogfest!

  4. The only thing I really know about Marvin the Martian is that they talk about him in Clueless :D

  5. Marvin is timeless. Very good choice for a Martian hop. Like your site and am following you by GFC. Julie @ http://icreatepurtythangs.blogspot.com

  6. My favorite Martian was the show of that name.

  7. Everytime I read a Marvin quote I always hear it in his voice. :p

    Nice little history write up on him, I liked all the little tid bits.

  8. Thanks for sharing your martian love with us. ;)
