Truth! I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in Tex Avery's work or classic cartoons in general:

Got it, but I always wanted the Joe Adamson book, too. I have all of Tex's (not Texas) MGM cartoons on a French DVD set.

Avery really WAS one of the Greats in his field - VERY influential on many modern animators; and he worked well beyond his "classic" days into the TV era.

I hate to use the word "cartoon", but the 1953 animated short, The Tell-Tale Heart, released by UFA and narrated by James Mason is outstanding. In my opinion, it redefines what you can do with animation.

The Tell-Tale Heart, released by UFA . . . redefines what you can do with animation.

You mean "UPA". Home of "Mr. Magoo" and "Gerald McBoing-Boing.

That's the one. They were also Godzilla's distribution arm in America, for a while. However, this short was done in completely different style than the characters above (see below). By the way, this is the film that was advertised in the back of FM for a number of years.

I was so happy it was included on the Hellboy DMV. It is one of the finest horror films ever made.
