* ValuesDissonance: Female objectification and broad racial stereotypes are rampant in Avery's shorts, and like everything else he did, [[RefugeInAudacity they weren't subtle]]. Ranges from "mildly uncomfortable" to "only watchable if you're forgiving of the time period." It's worth noting that he directed ''three'' shorts which would later appear on the infamous "WesternAnimation/CensoredEleven" list, one less than Creator/FrizFreling.

* ValuesDissonance: As with a lot of old cartoons, there's a lot of obvious racism and sexism, though most are [[RefugeInAudacity so over-the-top]] that they go from being "offensive" to "hilarious, if you keep an open mind and realize that this was made back when people were more open to show stuff like this."

* GrowingTheBeard: Though his work at Warner Bros. is undoubtedly hilarious, it was when Tex moved to MGM that the gloves came off and he was able to do the gags he wanted to do with very little ExecutiveMeddling.

Added DiffLines:

** 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!
