    Weapon with which Marvin the Martian plans to blow up the earth with the aid of the Illudium Pew-36 Explosive Space Modulator in Haredevil Hare (Jones, 1948). Possibly a joke based on the V-1 and V-2 rockets developed by Nazi Germany during what was then the recently concluded Second World War, the influence of which was still felt at the time the cartoon was made. Note the Kilroy Was Here reference in the same cartoon.
