-->'''Tex Avery''': ''"I want the audience to know I know they're out there."''



* TheTwelvePrinciplesOfAnimation: Avery is notable for his very direct, broad animation, as well as his razor sharp timing, streamlined and exaggerated design sense, and clear as crystal staging--he eschewed the more detailed Disney style characters and slick overlapping inbetweens (a flaw his early MGM shorts suffered from, since many of them were ex-Disney and ex-Creator/HarmanAndIsing animators unaccustomed to his approach to animation) in favor of animation that had exaggeration, rhythm and contrast, and thus the much faster timing and comedic impact he desired.

Even when MGM began slashing cartoon budgets in the early '50s, Avery relied heavily on poses which made appealing silhouettes, a practice continued to this day in low-budget animation.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Avery left Warner Bros. for MGM after Leon Schlesinger forced him to cut the ending of the Bugs Bunny short "The Heckling Hare," which contained an OverlyLongGag of Bugs Bunny and Willoughby the dog falling off cliffs. No one knows exactly why the second fall was cut. Some sources say it was to censor Bugs' line, "Hold on to your hats, folks! Here we go again!", which was, at the time, the punchline to an obscene joke. Others say that Leon Schlesinger did not want audience members to think that they killed off Bugs Bunny.
** His shorts suffered less ExecutiveMeddling at MGM; however, he was forced to change a lot of scenes from ''WesternAnimation/RedHotRidingHood'' as per the Hays Code, who balked at a lot of the gags that were deemed too racy for the general public at the time (The Wolf's sexual reactions to Red were toned down [and one scene of The Wolf having body heat steam escape his collar was considered too risque to be shown in the 1940s] and the end [[spoiler:with the horny grandmother forcing the Wolf into marrying her and the Wolf taking his half-human, half-lupine children to the nightclub to see Red]] were the scenes that gave the censors the most grief and the scenes said to still be around, thanks to a special version that was seen by American soldiers overseas during World War II).

'''Frederick Bean "Tex" Avery''' (19081980) is widely considered the original animated cartoon gag-man, famous for using [[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.
