Product Description

Widely hailed by critics and animation fans alike for his pioneered use of the styized "squash and stretch" brand of animation, award-winning director TEX AVERY was one of the key members of the creative team that shaped such world-renowned characters as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig. You can rediscover the magic of one of animation's great legendary figures with 12 loony episodes, featuring exciting new characters and a hyperactive dose of Tex Avery style squash and stretch action! After Pompeii Pete is dug out of a 2,000 year old lava rock, this well-meaning but clueless centurion wreaks havoc on the modern world. **12 episodes included!!**

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!

The old Tex Avery cartoons are wonderful.....this is not them! I didn't read this carefully enough and thought it was the actual Avery cartoons. (purchased a bunch of cartoons that day, rushed it, my fault) This is just some modern cartoon of the usual low end production, nothing like the original theatrical shorts of Tex Avery. Very disappointed.

Wacky World of Tex Avery.

back in the day when this series was in sindicated TV, i thought the character Tex was annoying and wanted to see the other character more.

granted it is no classic Tex Avery but, for it time was doing the best it could for what it had.

just wish they would put it in a complete set.

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.
