    Tex Avery has to be one of the most well known cartoonist to grace MGM Studios. I can remember sitting infront of the TV and watching classics like "Symphony in Slag", "Car of Tomorrow", "TV of Tomorrow", and "Magical Maestro". I now own a 5 disc "Tex Avery Collection" set and can't wait to laugh with my kids at this great set. Does anyone else have a favorite Tex Avery cartoon?

      I used to Watch that Show All The Time Back When it was Airing on Cartoon Network!

      EDIT: One of My Favorites was The Home of Tomorrow!

          You have the set too? I picked it up on one of my trips to France, didn't know it was released anywhere else, certainly I haven't been able to find it.

          As for the topic, there are just too many to single one out, all the Droopys, all the ... of Tomorrows, all the Screwy Squirrels, the man was a real genius, the equal of Chuck Jones.

            Mine happens to be a 5 disc set with at leat 15 cartoons on each disc. This one I got off Ebay from a bootlegger, but these dvds are amazing. This seller went through a lot of trouble and work to make these and they are absolulty the best bootleg I've seen. I'll have to see if I can find him and contact him to see if he has a webpage or something.

              The "Of Tomorrow" cartoons were definitely my favorite!

                    Who can forget Tex Avery? The man who gave Bugs Bunny his catchphrase and his attitude. My fav Tex Avery cartoons were Tortoise Beats Hare and Batty Baseball.
                    WHAT?

                              Ah ok, I have an official one, so it has extras like sketches, unfinished cartoons etc.

                              Sadly no retrospectives or a biography, but you can't have everything, and hours of entertainment will do me just fine.

                                    I LOVE Tex Avery! It was my dad who introduced it to my sister and I when we were kids. I laughed the hardest at those, moreso than any other cartoon series. The animation is quick, witty, and down-right hilarious. I would love to own copies of the original, unedited cartoons and laugh my ass off all over again.

                                          I always liked to catch the "Tex Avery Show" late at night in the late 90's on cartoon network

                                          my favorite espisode is Bad Luck Blackie but, i like them all.
