Importing Mailchimp Email Templates

I am having trouble importing a Mailchimp template into Marketo. 

Unfortunately I am only able to export my Mailchimp templates as HTML, and when I try to upload this in Marketo and view it, it prompts me to login into Mailchimp, then an error appears. 

My company is switching from Mailchimp to Marketo, and we would like to keep the templates that are already built in Mailchimp and just import them to Marketo. 

If anyone has done this before or has any insight that would be helpful as there seems to be a lack of email template discussions.

Thanks,
Erin

You may have to strip mailchimp specific code and SCRIPT tags from emails.

Try sending yourself a mailchimp email and then downloading the html code...

Thank you for the quick response, but honestly none of what you said makes sense to me! It's all a different language. 

How do I download the HTML code from an email? And how would I import that into Marketo?

Thanks!
