Surprisingly, given his tremendous popularity, Marvin only appears in five classic Looney Tunes. He debuted in 1948 as Commander X-2 in 'Haredevil Hare,' starring opposite Bugs Bunny. Four years later, in another Bugs Bunny vehicle, 'Hasty Hare,' he first appears as Marvin the Martian with a new canine companion, K-9. 'Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2th Century' (1953) pits Marvin against Daffy Duck and Porky Pig. Finally, he reunites with Bugs Bunny in 'Hare-way to the Stars' (1958) and 'Mad As a March Hare' (1963).

Cat-Tails for Two (1953), directed by Robert McKimson, shows him looking like a hick, scrawny and buck-toothed. It was in his second cartoon, Speedy Gonzales (1955), directed by Friz Freleng, that he was re-designed as the sleek little speedster we all know today.
