#36 -- Martian Through Georgia

Title - Martian Through Georgia
Director - Chuck Jones
Released - 1962

Reason for Placement --

I think we can all identify with the alien in this short; he lives in what is essentially a utopia, has a girl who's crazy about him, but he's bored, plain & simple. How often have we felt that, just fed up with everything in our lives and seeking something... anything, that can take that boredom away?

Though Jones get a big chunk of the credit for this episode, I give a lot of points to Maurice Noble for his eye-catching abstract background. The design in Martian Through Georgia is beyond cool, not only giving us a killer design for the alien world, but even the design on Earth, showing us why Jones would would credit Noble as a co-director in a lot of his later shorts (this one included).
