Sunday Funnies: Old School

Like Michigan J. Frog, Marvin was never named in the original shorts – he was referred to as the Commander of Flying Saucer X-2 in The Hasty Hare in 1952, and sometimes referred to as “Antwerp” in promotional material or other projects like the live stage show version of Bugs Bunny in Space. However, in 1979, once the character attracted merchandising interest, the name “Marvin” was selected for The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie.

Yes! The Illudium Q-36 is on my top 5 BB ‘toons. I prefer Marvin’s voice tone in this one too.

Ya, early tone doesn’t suit as well to me.

The opera singer and Yo’ Sam as a medieval knight are two others, maybe the one with Chris Columbus and the bull fight episodes round out the top 5 off the top of my head.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
