I learned from Tom Sito's wonderful blog on animation and history that today is Marvin the Martian's birthday. Here's the cartoon that introduced him to the world...

Man, this thing is just filled to the gills with great stuff. The stuff of Bugs going bonkers during and after the launch/landing is just gut busting funny. I mean, really. I've seen this cartoon dozens of times and I still laugh at that. The late 40's were an absolutely amazing time for cartoons. Imagine being a kid back then, going to the theater every Saturday morning to catch the latest WB short. They just don't make stuff like this anymore. We don't even think like this anymore.
