''Marvin Marvin'' was a {{Fantastic|Comedy}} KidCom series that premiered on November 24, 2012 on Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}. It starred internet celebrity Lucas Cruikshank of ''WebVideo/{{Fred}}'' fame, in what was his last appearance for the network.

When the planet of Klooton is attacked by evil invaders, the Klurg, a Klootonian named Marvin's parents put him into a spacecraft and send him off to Earth. Here on Earth, Marvin is protected by the Formans, your typical American family. The series deals with Marvin adjusting to life as a typical human teenage male while going to high school.

It was cancelled in 2013 with a 19-episode run and gained negative reviews from critics and viewers alike. As such, Lucas proceeded to leave Nickelodeon to pursue other interests.

Not to be confused with Starvin' Marvin, a ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' character with a similar sounding name.

!! Tropes seen in ''Marvin Marvin'':

* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: While he needs his human disguise to hide from the Klurg, this seems to be the reason he maintains his disguise when alone with the Formans. At the very beginning of the pilot, he walks into the room in his true form and freaks them all out, prompting them to remind him to keep his disguise on.
* AlienAmongUs: Marvin is from the planet Klooton (not [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Mars]]).
* AlienCatnip: Chocolate seems to act like this for Marvin since he's never had it before.
* AlienInvasion: Marvin was sent to Earth fleeing one. It's vital that Marvin remains hidden or else the Klurg might invade the Earth.
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: As expected.
* AmusingAlien: Naturally, Marvin is this.
* AnAesop: Delivered by Teri and appearing rather abruptly near the end of the pilot: Everyone's at least a little weird, and it's okay to be strange.
* AnimatedCreditsOpening: Showcasing the story behind Marvin's arrival on Earth and adoption by the Formans.
* BizarreAlienBiology: Marvin has five stomachs, though one is apparently used to emit a mating call. The gases in Marvin's stomach also allow him to float when he's really happy.
** Marvin apparently has the ability to superheat or supercool his finger.
** When Marvin gets a toothache in the third episode (aptly titled "Toothache"), the tooth has to be removed before it explodes.
** His ears (or the Klootonian equivalent) are in his butt.
** When we see his true form, he has four eyes, two of which are at the ends of antennas.
* BlackBestFriend: Brianna, Teri's best friend.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Marvin, most definitely.
* ConspicuousCGI: Marvin's alien form is depicted with incredibly obvious CGI.
* CrazyCulturalComparison
* {{Crossover}}: With ''Series/BigTimeRush''. Ironically, it's also the last episode of the series.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: In his true Klootonian form, Marvin has an extra pair of eyes at the end of antennae.
* GeniusDitz: One episode features Marvin building a teleporter.
* GrandFinale: "Big Time Marvin"
* HappilyAdopted: Marvin.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Marvin's parents, who are presently fighting off an AlienInvasion of his home planet.
* HumanAlien: Marvin. Subverted in that his true form looks nothing like a human.
** HumanOutsideAlienInside: Marvin, although his human appearance seems to come from sort of [[AppliedPhlebotinum alien device]].
* IncrediblyLamePun: In the second episode Marvin asks a horse, "Are you neighing what I think you're neighing?"
** In the pilot, Liz asks Marvin to spin the spinner for a board game. He then literally spins around in circles.
* {{Kidanova}}: In "Double Date", Henry mentioned that he had three girlfriends.
* NaiveNewcomer: Marvin.
* Really700YearsOld: It's revealed in the pilot that Marvin is actually 580 years old, despite his youthful appearance as a human teenager.
* ShoutOut: In ''Big Time Marvin'', Marvin inhales helium to use against the Klerg, resulting in him adopting a ''Fred'' voice (Lucas Cruikshank's previous character). Marvin even lampshades this reference saying (while still under the effects of helium) "Wow, can you imagine having to talk like that all the time?"
** There is also a clear reference to ''LiveAction/{{Glee}}'' in the pilot.
*** The pilot also has a joke involving Teri dreaming of meeting the cast of Literature/{{Twilight}}. [[LateToTheParty In 2012]].
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: Marvin.
* WeaksauceWeakness: The Klerg are severly allergic to helium.
