Marvin wears a Roman soldier’s uniform, with basketball shoes. The style of these shoes resembles the Chuck Taylor All-Stars brand name, considered to be the “generic” or “standard” basketball sneaker. The helmet and skirt that he wears are green and his suit is red (in a few of the original shorts, his suit was green and the helmet and skirt golden). His head is a black sphere with only eyes for features. The curved crest of his helmet appears, with the push-broom-like upper section, to comically resemble the helm of an ancient Greek hoplite, or the galea of a Roman centurion. The appearance of the combination of Marvin’s head and helmet led to Bugs Bunny referring to him as a “bowling ball wearing a spittoon” in one short. Marvin speaks with a soft, nasally voice, and often speaks technobabble. He is also known for his trademark quotes “Where’s the kaboom? There was supposed to be an Earth-shattering kaboom!”, “Isn’t that lovely?”, and “This makes me very angry, very angry indeed. ” (which is usually followed by him huffing and puffing)
