1. Synopsis

Marvin the Martian here referred to as Commander of the X2 vessel is traveling to Earth. Upon landing, he opens his assignment envelope - return one Earth creature back to Mars signed by General E=mc². With the help of his dog, K-9 who "talks" to Marvin by handing him notes, he finds Bugs rabbit hole. As the two observe the hole, they are pushed back when Bugs cleans out a bucket of carrot stems. Seeing their getup, Bugs assumes it must be Halloween, so he hands them each a bag of treats. Marvin then decides that he shall "have" to use force. He pulls out his disintegrating gun, and atomizes a large hole where the small rabbit hole used to be. Bugs shrieks "How Halloween-y can you get?" before seeing the flying saucer.

Marvin then tells Bugs that he is to come back to Mars with him. Bugs tries to act defiant, but goes slightly insane when Marvin uses his pistol against a nearby rock which also disintegrates part of the ground under the rock. He quickly gets some bags and runs into the ship, then runs back out as a train conductor a play on Mel Blancs train conductor character on the Jack Benny show, telling Marvin and K-9 "Flying saucer, for Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter, Venus, the Dog Star and Mars now leaving on track five! All aboard!" Marvin and K-9 rush on the ship and fly off, then realize their mistake in midflight and fly back "Oh! That wasnt a bit nice! very angry indeed!".

Bugs convinces Marvin that he wants to go to Mars, then insinuates that K-9 is plotting mutiny. Marvin calls K-9 over and atomizes him, but K-9 pulls himself out of his helmet, asking what he did wrong signed, "Anxious". Bugs starts walking off, but Marvin and K-9 shoot him with an Acme straitjacket-ejecting bazooka.

On the ship, Marvin is piloting while K-9 watches over Bugs labeled as "One over-confident Earth creature". Bugs convinces K-9 to let him "try on something more sporty". Now out of the straitjacket, Bugs quickly ties K-9 up, then grabs another jacket and yells "Everybody desert ship! Weve struck an iceberg and were sinking fast! Here, get into this life preserver, quick!" as he wraps Marvin in the spare straitjacket.

Now with both of them tied up labeled as "Two disgruntled Martians", Bugs tries turning the ship back home. After a brief out-of-control spin, he starts to fly back, but throws out an anchor to steady the ship. The anchor then pulls on a crescent moon, which in turn pulls on Saturns rings, a large planet presumably Jupiter and other assorted stars. Back on Earth, a small man in an observatory looks into his telescope, only to see the spaceship and the planets directly in front of him. The man then writes a note and leaves. Outside, Bugs asks the man if he knows where he can sell a "slightly used flying saucer - its only got 3 billion miles on it." The man then starts to have a mental breakdown in a goofy matter, causing Bugs with an annoyed look to ask the audience,: "Huh, whats biting him?"
