You can't really have Marvin without Duck Dodgers IMHO.
Actually, Marvin the Martian (though he didn't have a name yet) made his first appearance in the 1948 cartoon Haredevil Hare
, starring Bugs Bunny. I think an animated Marvin in a contemporary live-action universe could work, but he needs a strong character like Bugs or Daffy as a foil.
As for Hong Kong Phooey, never heard of him. The toilet stuff was just bad, bad bad.
