Disney's Original John Carter

The new, live-action John Carter is not Disney's first aquaintence with Edgar Rice Burroughs' Martian warrior. In the Man in Space trilogy episode Mars and Beyond, Ward Kimball opened the Barsoomian Dictionary to introduce audiences to the denizens of Burroughs' war-world.

Barsoomians, or the Red and Green Martians, short a few arms.

A Banth, or Martian lion.

A Calot, of a sort. One of the least accurate representations.

Thoat, or Martian horse.

A Martian plant-man.
