After quitting the [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Warner Bros. cartoon studio]] in [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1941]] after a squabble with Leon Schlesinger, director Creator/TexAvery was hired by the {{MGM}} Cartoon studio to try giving the studio something to offer that wasn't Creator/HarmanAndIsing's cutesy [[WesternAnimation/MGMOneshotCartoons oneshot short subjects.]]

Free of the budget and creative constraints he faced at Warner Bros., and with a staff of skilled animators at his side (some of whom were even ex-Disney employees), Tex Avery went on to make some of the best cartoons of TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, or in some cases, some of the most acclaimed cartoons of all time. From 1942 to 1957, he cranked out dozens of classics, many of which would go on to codify the ZanyCartoon and thus serve as an influence to many animators, including master animator Creator/RichardWilliams. The fact that they were constantly reaired in the early years of Creator/CartoonNetwork (and, a generation earlier, syndicated and shown on UHF stations all over the U.S.) only contributed to making him a legend in animation pop culture.

* '''WesternAnimation/{{Droopy}}''': A tiny, very modest Basset Hound that was apparently a master of OffscreenTeleportation and TheCatCameBack, capable of great strength when [[BerserkButton roused to anger]]. Is quite a good samaritan, constantly doing good deeds, especially when it comes to catching criminal wolves. His voice sounds similar to that of Creator/HGWells of all people. Possibly his best short is NorthwestHoundedPolice. Droopy cartoons continued to be made after Tex's departure from MGM, with Michael Lah as director.

* '''ScrewySquirrel''': An insane squirrel that often picked on his antagonists for no reason other than [[RuleOfFunny because it was funny.]] He met his match with Lonesome Lenny in his final short, though, in which he was presumably [[AndCallHimGeorge crushed to death]] by the ''Of Mice And Men''-inspired dog. His series was short lived because Avery never cared for the character much. There are stories of Tex's automatically throwing fan letters depicting Screwy Squirrel into the trash.
