The Marx Brothers were an early 20th century comedy group consisting of four brothers who went by the names Chico, Harpo, Groucho, and Zeppo Marx. A fifth brother, Gummo, was part of the group prior to their rise to fame in motion pictures.

The Marx Brothers' films survived into the 24th century. Tom Paris enjoyed these films, and screened them for the rest of the USS Voyager crew.
