Cartoon Synopsis:

Science-fiction-influenced cartoon sponsored by petroleum producers to lionize their industry and promote free enterprise. Martian dissidents learn that oil and competition are the two things that make America great. Colonel Cosmic, a little green man from the totalitarian planet Mars, crash-lands his flying saucer on earth to study the Americans. He discovers cheap oil and the market economy and learns the most important lesson of all: that oil and capitalism go hand in hand! He reports back to his Martian civilization of Oggville on the advantages of both oil and free trade. The Martians instantly rebel against their harsh dictator Ogg and go drilling for oil- and the American way! He frees Martian entrepreneurs to begin oil exploration, start small businesses, and lead the planet out of economic stagnation.
