Modulator - The name of the space weapon component that
cartoon character Bugs Bunny (playing an astronaut) grabbed

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).
