The Wacky World of Tex Avery, Season 1
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
The magic of classic cartoons returns in this series of shorts crated in wild squash-and-stretch-style animation. These belly-laugh segments each star a different member, including the bumbling Roman centurion, "Pompeii Pete"; the inept conqueror and the little princess he cannot conquer (Genghis and Khannie); the lamest super hero on four legs (Power Pooch); the world's first inventor (Einstone); the ultra pesky Freddie the Fly; and of course, wackiest hero in the old West: Tex Avery himself. This is an homage to the brilliant, hilarious, and groundbreaking animator Tex Avery and the wonderful squash-and-stretch cartoons of his era.

NOT the Reel Deal
OK ... these are NOT cartoons by Director Tex Avery (the King of Cartoons & creator of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Droopy). An animation company named DIC (Inspector Gadget) did this series in 1997. The series was only named after Tex Avery (sort of a homage, just not a very good one). For real Tex gems, check out "Magical Maestro", "King-size Canary", "Bad Luck Blackie" & "Ventriloquist Cat" - my absolute favs. Barney Bear cartoons are also hilarious.
Do not buy!
We need to have the real Tex Avery Cassics for purchase.
How does this happen?
Comming off a boom in intrest of classic 40s animation this pile of dreg would be fogetable and odd if it wernt capitalizing on one of the most beloved names in the history of animation. This is so removed from Tex that it doesn't even warrant comparison. Negative a million stars.
