Today I came across a news item that made me all giddy. Warner Bros has decided to make a movie based on one of my all time favorite cartoon characters Marvin the Martian. True when I find out that Hollywood is going to remake a beloved cartoon character from my childhood I cringe a little, but this my friends is something that gets me all giddy. Similar to the reaction I felt when I learned they'd be making a G.I. Joe movie I want to enter the theatre feeling like a kid again, but sadly it'll probably end up sucking as hard as the Flintstones film.
I grew up in a time when senseless cartoon violence was still very funny and wouldn't result in some angry phone call from some parent trying to protect their precious little one from animated brawling. Ahh the good ole days where Tom got the frying pan to the face, Elmer got shot up numerous times with his own shotgun, and Porky would get punted by a crazy duck on a regular basis. Such good times before everything became all nice and fuzzy.
I used to do a great impression of Marvin the Martian when I was young. Really hooked in the ladies with that one. What I lacked in good looks and charm I made up for in cartoon voices.
