Santa ClausEdit

 
All this trouble over a fat little man in a red suit!
  • Well, when Voldar "accidentally" left us in the airlock and then came up here and "accidentally" threw the door switch, we knew we had to get out of there in a hurry or that would be the end of us. Eh, uh, "accidentally," of course.
  • [after being asked if he is going to use a rocket sleigh] No siree! We're going out the good ol' fashioned way. Prancer and Dancer and Donder and Blitzen, and Vixen and Nixon... oh, consarnit I get those names mixed up, but the KIDS know their names.

VoldarEdit

  • All this trouble over a fat little man in a red suit!
  • If we take them with us to Mars, Santa's disappearance will remain a mystery. No one on Earth will ever know that Santa Claus was kidnapped by Martians.

BillyEdit

  • You'll never get away with this, you Martian!

OtherEdit

  • TV News Announcer: Here's another UFO Bulletin: The Defense Department has just announced that the unidentified flying object suddenly disappeared from our radar screen. They believe the object has either disintegrated in space, or it may be a space ship from another planet which has the ability to nullify all radar beams.
  • TV News Announcer: [News report after Santa's disappearance] And Mrs. Claus has positively identified the kidnappers as Martians.

DialogueEdit

Kimar: Dropo, you are the laziest man on Mars. Why are you sleeping during working hours?
Dropo: I wasn't sleeping, chief. It's just that I haven't been able to sleep these last few months. I forgot how. So I was just practicing.

Betty: What are those funny things sticking out of your head?
Rigna: Those are our antennae.
Betty: Are you a television set?

Hargo: What's soft and round and you put it on a stick and you toast it in a fire, and it's green?
Kimar: I don't know what?
Hargo: A Martian mellow.

Andy Henderson: What is this strange looking creature over here?
Santa Claus: Oh, Winky made that. That's his idea of a Martian.
Andy Henderson: A Martian? Wow-wee-wow! I'd hate to meet a creature like that on a dark night.

Kimar: Santa, you will never return to Earth, you belong to Mars now.
Santa Claus: Ho Ho, Hooo...

Kimar: How are you feeling today? Tired?
Santa Claus: Oh, no, I'm not tired. But my finger is.
