Commander X-2– who was to become Marvin Martian– in his first ever Chuck Jones cartoon from 1958
Hare-Way To The Stars (1958) Looney Tunes Theatrical Cartoon Series
Bugs Bunny, groggy from a rabbit hangover, climbs out of his hole and into a rocket ship parked directly above. He thinks that he’s still in his rabbit hole. Reaching the top, he unwittingly stows away aboard the rocket to Mars and is carried off by a satellite onto a futuristic landscape of panels suspended in outer space. He tries to rent a U-Drive flying saucer from a local character wearing a spittoon: Commander X-2 in his Roman hairbrush helmet. Marvin advises him not to bother, as “the Earth will be gone in just a few seconds. I’m going to blow it up– it obstructs my view of Venus.” To save the planet from destruction, Bugs makes off with the Aludium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator that the Martian has built.
