Marvin and Daffy Go to Mars, For Real!

Just in time for the debut of the new Duck Dodgers series on Cartoon Network (August), Warner Bros. announces that Marvin the Martian and Daffy Duck will be showcased on the official first Space Launch Squadron’s patches for two NASA Mars Exploration Rover Missions this summer. Acting as the defining logos of the trip, these special patches will be worn by Team Delta crews, comprised of members from NASA, the U.S. Air Force and Boeing.

In addition, the patches will be on display in the mission control booth and the Air Force 1SLS launch pad, and will be carried on mission control and launch pad crew suits, jackets and mugs. The Delta rockets will send the Mission Exploration Rover (MER) on special research operations to study the Red Planet!

Daffy Duck and Marvin the Martian struck us as such a perfect fit, capturing the fun and adventurous spirit of these important explorations, that we were delighted to be able to include them as honorary members of the team,” says Team Delta’s Captain David Krambeck. Now that’s what we call a product placement deal that’s out of this world.
