A few years ago,a cartoon company came up with the idea to cash in on Tex Avery's name,round about the time The Mask was making it big in the box office and everyone was all into him,and created a cartoon cowboy of the same name. This collection is of that cartoon character,NOT the legendary animator.

If you're looking for the real Tex Avery's works,look elsewhere. If you want to see blatant profit making off the name of a dead guy,this is more what you want.

As near as I can tell, not a single one of these cartoons was done by Tex Avery since none of them seem to be reflected on any list of his body of work. They appear to have been done by somebody else "in the style of Tex Avery". This product is mis-represented by the producer and by Amazon.com

This is NOT the Tex Avery of the classic MGM, Warner Brothers, & Walter Lantz Cartoon fame. This is a cheap TV show, released by DIC, ripping off the classic cartoon director's name and shamelessly using it for its main character & series name.

You will NOT find the classic Droopy here!

You will NOT find the classic Little Red here!

You will NOT find the classic City Wolf here!

You will NOT find the classic Screwy Squirrel here!

You will NOT find the classic Lenny & George here!

You will NOT find full classic animation here!

You will find yourself using this DVD as a practice target.

For the real TEX AVERY experience, get these DVDs!

These cartoons are from the "Wacky World of Tex Avery" series that ran on TV in the late '90's. They are done in the "Tex Avery" style - stretching characters, popping eyeballs, shattering teeth, etc - and have new and original characters, such as "Tex Avery", "Power Pooch", Pompeii Pete", "Freddy the Fly" (my favorite), and "Einstone" the cave-genius. If you love funny animation and frantic story-telling these cartoons will be sure to bring lots of laughs. I've got them all, and frankly, I think the other reviewers are shockingly ignorant. Anybody who loves and follows animation knows these shows and recognises them as totally original and very funny.

The cartoons on this DVD are "in Tex Avery's style." That is, they've used many of the tropes Avery did -- fast action, sexy women, (allegedly) goofy characters -- but managed to avoid anything resembling humor. The cartoons are annoying at best but more like painful to watch.

There are plenty of collections of Avery's ACTUAL work on this site and elsewhere. Don't waste time or money with this.
