Untitled[edit]

Why is the creation date for Marvin the Martian missing from his page entry?

According to - http://www.gargaro.com/marvin.html

- Marvin was created in July, 1948.

I found this site through AskJeeves.com with this question - "when was marvin the martian created?"

AskJeeves.com listed other sites that repeated the same date.

I can not update the page based on information from a fan site. But I have emailed the owner of that site to perhaps update it.


-- The Explosive Space Modulator.

Ok, I've seen it as three different things, the Q-36, the Q-38 (see http://imdb.com/title/tt0051701/quotes?) and even the PU-36 (pronounced as Pew). Anyone got a good source for the official designation?

The bar sheet for Hare-Way to the Stars dubs it "Illudium Pew-36 Explosive Space Modulator". UndeniablyJordan 19:47, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

Well, in this sample: http://www.gargaro.com/MaRvInWaVs/goody.wav it's definitely Q-36, while in this one from 1948: http://www.gargaro.com/MaRvInWaVs/new3.wav it's definitely (pronounced) Pew-36. I am changing the text in the main page to read "...changed to... Q-36... in subsequent cartoons". If anybody thinks there is some ambiguity in one of the other samples, it could read "... PU-36 and/or Q-36..."NoJoy (talk) 16:59, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Why was it changed from Plutonium to illudium>?

the voicing changed to an almost 'British' phrasing? This is a wierd adjective to describe a voice, stereotyping and not reliable as information, so much as personal belief .


Can someone change the catchphrase. It think it should be "Hmmm, isn't that lovely, huhh?

Image[edit]

Could someone explain the background behind the image on the left of the article - witohut explanation the reader is left wondering.... Martinp23 23:40, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Number of appearances[edit]

How about a section that lists all the cartoon shorts that Marvin appeared in? There probably weren't that many. 66.251.84.28 17:50, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

What is this about?[edit]

I just saw this...

"Marvin has made homosexual related jokes after being fooled by a cross-dressing Bugs Bunny and cross-dressing Daffy Duck."

I don't know if the Daffy instance was an episode of Duck Dodgers, but I can only think of one instance of Bugs crossdressing when facing off again Marvin (That would be "Lunar Tunes, an animated special from 1991".

Does anyone know what to make of this?

i'm not sure but it might be vandalism. -Threewaysround 00:15, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Cultural References[edit]

69.144.192.103 (talk)6/1802008 greyselchie Big Fish Games has an online game called Farm 51 where the player receives Space Modulators and IlludiumQ as quest rewards from an UFO. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.144.192.103 (talk) 15:47, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

It Obstructs my View of Venus...[edit]

Are there any math whizzes out there? Marvin's initial motive for destroing Earth is that it obstructs his view of the planet Venus. I know it's a cartoon and it's there for comdeic reasons, but it got me wondering; How often would this even possibly occur? Earth and Mars have orbits that vary so much in speed, is this even remotely an issue for a martian? I just want numbers here as to how often this would happen. Thanks. Houdin654jeff (talk) 23:19, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

It would almost never happen, nor to any relevant degree--a couple of days at most. It's just a joke.Mzmadmike (talk) 12:48, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Well, Marvin may be "a Martian", but he is on a space station, not on Mars; so that space station could be somewhere (say, the Earth-Sun L2) near the Earth, so that the Earth would often block the view of Venus. 174.47.84.200 (talk) 21:49, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

3-D Movie?[edit]

Wasn't there a Marvin the Martian 3-D movie planned at one time? Orville Eastland (talk) 03:09, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Watchmen?[edit]

I believe the Marvin shows up on one of the many TV screens in one of the scenes at Karnak.170.123.4.230 (talk) 21:57, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

One More Cameo (Or Not) Appearence[edit]

May I note that Marvin the Martian has also appeared in a Cartoon Network "Groovie" that was centered on him. He also made another cameo apearence in another "Groovie." In a whole, this should be added on the title of other appearences in the article of Marvin the Martian.

Name[edit]

It says in the article that the name was chosen many years later for merchandising reasons. So what year was "Marvin the Martian" first used? Who decided on the name? And how did Chuck Jones, Mel Blanc and the rest refer to the character during all the years of creating him? It'd be interesting if someone found out some of this info! BigSteve (talk) 08:45, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

I seem to remember some other name for the Martian character also – something like maggot or bitty or a name like that. Anyone else recall that? Shocking Blue (talk) 10:31, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
