[Marvin the Martian in the 3rd Dimension]
This specially released 3-D animation was only shown for a limited time in WB stores, at MovieWorld on the Gold Coast (Australia) and cinemas. Unfortunately it was not a world-wide release but it appears that it was screened in the U.S. also at selected venues.
NEW!! December 2002 - I am happy to report that I visited Movieworld on the Gold Coast and saw the Marvin the Martian in the Third Dimension. It was absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend it. If you can get there, go for it! I also 'met' Marvin a number of times and had photos taken. If you are an avid Marvin merchandise collector, as I am, there are lots of items for sale in the Movieworld stores at very reasonable prices. I managed to pick up 2 x photo frames, and an embroidered cap. Let us know of your experience via e-mail and we'll put it up on the site. It could include what you've collected, or your favourite cartoon...
