Tex Avery Online Found Images (Part 2 of 2)
Woofnerts Roboteers, here’s part two in my Tex Avery posts of goodies for you all gang. Avery’s impact on animation is nothing less than Earth shattering.
I downloaded these images way back sometime around 2002 and recently found them while cleaning up my computer, therefore all credit goes to the original poster. Much thanks stranger!
Here’s a little info on him:
Avery’s influence can be seen in almost all of the animated cartoon series by various studios in the 1940s and 1950s. Gary Morris described Avery’s innovative approach:
Above all, [Avery] steered the Warner Bros. house style away from Disney-esque sentimentality and made cartoons that appealed equally to adults, who appreciated Avery’s speed, sarcasm, and irony, and to kids, who liked the nonstop action. Disney’s “cute and cuddly” creatures, under Avery’s guidance, were transformed into unflappable wits like Bugs Bunny, endearing buffoons like Porky Pig, or dazzling crazies like Daffy Duck. Even the classic fairy tale, a market that Disney had cornered, was appropriated by Avery, who made innocent heroines like Red Riding Hood into sexy jazz babies, more than a match for any Wolf. Avery also endeared himself to intellectuals by constantly breaking through the artifice of the cartoon, having characters leap out of the end credits, loudly object to the plot of the cartoon they were starring in, or speak directly to the audience.
I highly recommend you search out his short animated gems and give them a watch. They are jam-packed with lightening fast sight gags and jokes. Avery was a true genius in the field of animated comedy.
As always gang, please do enjoy!!
