    Hareway to the Stars Marvin Martian Production Cel (Warner Brothers, 1958). "Where is the Kaboom?" This out-of-this-world hand-painted production cel features the quietest and likely most dangerous of the Warner Brothers cartoon bad guys! This cartoon was Marvin the Martian's fourth and featured him attempting to blow up the entire Earth (with an Illudium PU-36 Explosive Space Modulator, aka a stick of dynamite) as it was obstructing his view of Venus! This Chuck Jones directed and Mike Maltese written classic was released on March 29th, 1958. All 1950s Looney Tunes cels are rare, Marvin cels even more so. This full-figure Marvin stands 4.5" tall on his 12 field, 3-peghole cel, numbered "117" in the bottom right corner. There is paint loss and paint separation throughout the figure. Fair to Good condition.
