He looks forward to living on Mars where he would benefit from having more than 24 hours in a day.

Not the Saturday morning cartoons of my childhood, but both are excellent. A great way to start THIS Saturday morning! Thanks!

Delightful! Nope, Sat. Morn. cartoons in the benighted woods of Maine were much more violent and silly.
