* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The early shorts by Tex Avery at Warner Bros. are very different from his later work at MGM--with the except of a brief period in the late 30's (where he had wilder shorts like his three WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck cartoons), the pacing of his Looney Tunes is a lot slower than those of Creator/BobClampett and Creator/FrankTashlin, and instead of off the wall animation, he experimented with slow, tight animation that emulated the approach and timing of live action comedies in his travelogue parodies. His earliest Warners shorts, particularly shorts like "Page Miss Glory", are barely recognizable as his work.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar and CensorDecoy: Avery and his animators would occasionally put some risqué jokes in their cartoons. In order to get this stuff passed the censors they combined it with some outrageously risqué stuff that would never get passed. As they expected the outrageously risqué stuff was never used, but some of the milder stuff now DID get greenlighted, simply because it looked more innocent in comparison.
** The little duck in "Lucky Ducky" gets out of his egg shell by performing a parody of a striptease act.
*** The lizard in "Cross Country Detours" also sheds her skin like a stripper. A CensorBox was put in just before things got interesting.

* InteractiveNarrator: "Red Hot Riding Hood" begins this way, with the Wolf, Red Riding Hood and Granny complaining about doing the same story the same way every time. Tex created this trope in the 1937 WB cartoon ''The Village Smithy,'' and conversely, the character talking back at the narrator.

** 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''. [[/note]]

* BaitAndSwitch: Avery's trade secret was opening his cartoons very sedated and normal, letting the tension build in the audience before pulling the rug out from under them with an overblown gag.



* FurIsClothing: Many of his cartoons employ this. One famous example, though it isn't fur, was a cartoon he did at Warner Bros. which was a parody of a nature documentary, in which a lizard shedding its skin gets on its hind legs and does a striptease dance while removing it, [[RotoScope rotoscoped]] off a real stripper.

* NamelessNarrative: Many Tex Avery cartoons feature one-time characters whom Avery never bothered to give a name. This includes many anonymous cats, dogs and mice and even the infamous wolf character who, despite being a recurring character, always remained with NoNameGiven.
