Check Out Test Footage From Hong Kong Phooey and Marvin the Martian

December 27, 2012


Although it's unclear whether or not either project is still destined for the big screen, Cartoon Brew (via Bleeding Cool) has uncovered attached director Alex Zamm's test footage for both Hong Kong Phooey and Marvin the Martian. You can check both out in the player below.

Originally announced last year, Hong Kong Phooey had Eddie Murphy attached to play mild-mannered dog Penry who, after stumbling into a mystic ceremony, is accidentally granted mystic powers, including the ability to walk, talk, and do kung fu. Under the tutelage of his kung fu master, Penry dons a costume and becomes Hong Kong Phooey, and with the help of his trusting sidekick Spot the cat cleans up a rogues gallery of wacky criminals.

The Marvin the Martian feature film announcement, meanwhile, dates back to 2008 and was to be based on the classic "Looney Tunes" character. Originally created in 1948, Marvin the Martian was often intent on blowing up the Earth, only to be foiled by Bugs Bunny.

Zamm, who was attached to both projects, is best known for family-friendly features like Dolittle: Million Dollar Mutts and Tooth Fairy 2.
