** According to Michael Barrier's book "Hollywood Cartoons", Avery himself admitted that ''A Wild Hare'' (the first short with the fully-realized Bugs Bunny) hadn't particularly aged well in his eyes, and doesn't appear to be a very groundbreaking short, plus very few gags.

** Lampshaded in the IAmWeasel episode "I Am Clichéd," where Weasel complains to the director of the cartoon (the Red Guy) that the falling anvils, painted tunnels and wild eye takes have been done to death.

* AwardSnub: Infamously, Tex never won an Oscar for his cartoons, and only two of them (Blitz Wolf and Little Johnny Jet) were even nominated. Fortunately, they got a better reward later on...

** Despite being snubbed by the Academy Awards in his lifetime, five of Avery's films wound up on The50GreatestCartoons list (with four more as runner-ups), and WesternAnimation/MagicalMaestro was considered such an important cartoon, that it was inducted into the NationalFilmRegistry, ''the highest honor a film can achieve!''

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome It bears noting that Tex's WesternAnimation/BlitzWolf was the first Hollywood cartoon to openly parody Hitler and the Nazis! It even got nominated for the AcademyAward!

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Avery pioneered many gags and situations that have become animation clichés: endless chases, eyes jumping out of their sockets, long tongues, sticks of dynamite, characters walking in mid-air before they realize there's no ground below them and fall, characters painting tunnels where the hero can walk thru, while the villain simply crashes against them...

** ValuesResonance: But there's some shorts like "TV of Tomorrow" that contain much commentary on television that mostly rings true today, such as a family life (literally) based around the TV set, a man keeping his face glued to the screen in the living room as his wife drags his body into the kitchen (only pulling his outstretched head in to eat his dinner), and a lack of variety in programming, despite having many channels (the old "X number of channels and there's nothing on" problem).

On the cartoon, it had a Scotsman watching TV installed in his flashlight), and a lack of variety in programming, despite having many channels (the old "X number of channels and there's nothing on" problem).
