Illudium PU-36 Explosive Space Modulator - The name of the space weapon component that cartoon character Bugs Bunny (playing an astronaut) grabbed from Marvin the Martian in the animated feature short Haredevil Hare (1948).

Marvin the Martian, a.k.a. Commander X-23 carried an ACME disintegration pistol and wanted to use the "PU-36" device to blow up Earth because it blocked his view of Venus.

TRIVIA NOTE: In the first Marvin the Martian cartoons, the "Illudium PU-36" device was referred to as "Uranium PU-36." Some people mistake the sound of "PU" for a "Q" and say "Q-36." However, the weapon's name is derived from the letters "PU" which coincidentally is the atomic symbol for Plutonium (named for the planet Pluto).
