The Wacky World of Tex Avery: Tex Rides Again
This is a terrible disappointment to anyone who thinks the product has anything to do with the classic Tex Avery cartoons done for Warner Bros or MGM. Instead you get a series of the new style made for TV cartoons that just move fast and crazy instead of showing any of the art or comic timing that Tex was known for.

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.

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.

This deceptively pitches itself as the work of Tex Avery. However it is a sub-par cowboy cartoon series where the main character is named Tex Avery. It claims to be inspired byTex Avery's animation style (bitch, please!) but is not amusing, entertaining or otherwise worthwhile in any way. False advertising to be sure. Avoid like herpes!
