'''Frederick Bean "Tex" Avery''' (19081980) is widely considered the original animated cartoon gag-man, famous for employing [[WildTake wild takes]], BreakingTheFourthWall, lampshading [[BornInTheTheatre medium conventions]], and stretching every joke to its [[CrossesTheLineTwice comedic limit]]. Sure, there were gags in cartoons before Tex, if you are particularly tickled by [[WesternAnimation/LadyPlayYourMandolin a fox]] in BlackFace being [[LiteralAssKicking smacked on the ass by stuff]]; but it was Tex's arrival at [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Warner Bros.]], and his hand-picked staff of animators and directors, that defined what we now call UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation.

** 1940's ''Holiday Highlights'' - which features scenes illustrating each of the major U.S. holidays - has the narrator playing a practical joke by not having any scene for April Fool's Day; while he laughs and keeps saying, "Fooled You!", a title card shows up on the screen that reads, "[[Radio/FibberMcgeeAndMolly Tain't Funny, [=McGee=]! - The Management]]".

On a side note, Tex has sometimes been given the dubious honor of being the inventor of (or at least making an early precursor of) the parody remix video style of filmmaking that would be become known as WebAnimation/YoutubePoop, with the "Gold is Where You Find It" segment of WesternAnimation/DaffyDuckInHollywood being considered one of the earliest, if not the first, forerunners to the comedic dada remix video style.

** The glut of westerns in general in the 50's earned a satirization in ''TV of Tomorrow''. About half of the live-action clips in this cartoon are of westerns, and one of the gags is a man frustrated with the fact that he gets a western on ''every channel''. He goes to the movies, gets a film with a romantic comedy title, but ''it'' turns out to be a western. The clip from the theater is replayed in the final gag of the cartoon, with an attempted broadcast to/from Mars. A "For the kiddies" television ad in ''House of Tomorrow'' also pokes fun at the western with another clip. [[note]] The glut of westerns earned a spot in the book ''Literature/WhatWereTheyThinkingThe100DumbestEventsInTelevisionHistory''.
