The Cartoon Adventures of Major Mars is an action-packed parody of 1940s adventure serials rendered as an homage to 1960s Saturday-morning cartoons. Major Mars ("...whose middle names are Danger...Disaster...and Catastrophe!") battles Dr. XYZ ('The Last Name in Evil') in a more innocent time of comic entertainment and sugar-coated cereals. It's all wrapped up as a tribute to Bob Burns!
Major Mars---the character---is the brainchild of Bob Burns (left), sci-fi film expert and serial adventure fanatic. His legendary original 35mm live action short The Further Adventures of Major Mars was the inspiration for Joe and Steve's cartoon parody of an homage wrapped in a tribute.
