Inspired by the antics in the Chuck Jones directed Looney Tunes cartoon The Hasty Hare, this Limited Edition Cel featured the undauntable Bugs Bunny yet again in command of the situation. In this classic short subject, Marvin the Martian (knows in this cartoon as Commander Flying Saucer X-2) and his trusty First Officer K-9 are assigned to "...bring back one (1) Earth creature...". Unfortunately for both these Martians and their plan, the Earth creature that they choose is none other than Bugs Bunny. Created by Chuck Jones and Michael Maltese, Marvin the Martian (as he became known) and K-9 appeared in fewer than ten Warner Bros. cartoons (which more often than not ended with Bugs saving the Earth).
This Limited Edition Cel began with a Dan Haskett drawing based on an image from The Hasty Hare. From this drawing Laurie Dindis created the master inking which was then silk-screened with the Warner Bros. Seal onto an acetate sheet (or 'cel'). The background by Hector Martinez was reproduced on acid-free paper using the lithography process. The edition number was hand inked on each cel in a special edition of only 350 pieces. Upon completion of the edition, the original artwork was archived.
