Fred "Tex" Avery (February 26, 1908 – August 26, 1980)

Today would be the 102nd birthday of Tex Avery.

In honour of that, this is a little mid-week update of a quick sketch I did from a Droopy cartoon that was directed by Tex Avery. Avery is credited with speeding up cartoons and developing characters such as Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Droopy, and more. Oddly some of my favourite Avery cartoons have no real cartoon star such as Bad Luck Blackie or Mixed Up Pup.

Anyway, Tex is a legend in animation and we shouldn't forget him.

We need a complete Tex Avery DVD collection. The Droopy set was good, but a full set would be great.
