'''''The Wacky World of Tex Avery''''' is a SixtyFiveEpisodeCartoon show that [[Creator/DICEntertainment DiC Entertainment]] produced in 1997 and 1998 before going defunct a few years later. Named after the late great Creator/TexAvery, a cartoonist who is most famous for his work at Creator/WarnerBros and Creator/{{MGM}}, the creator Brody Dowler describes the show as "homage to the brilliant, hilarious and groundbreaking animator Tex Avery and the wonderful squash-and-stretch cartoons of his era". The series was an attempt to capture the true aspect of his genius and his classic characters such as Droopy, George & Junior & Screwball Squirrel. Ultimately, the show never did live up to its promise, receiving scathing reviews and criticism that it lacked the humour and feel of Tex Avery's shorts.

!!The show contains the following shorts:
* Tex Avery: A goat-riding cowboy who saves the day and his girl Chastity Knott from his nemesis Sagebrush Sid (no relation to the real one). Based on Creator/BobClampett's "Red Hot Ryder" from Buckaroo Bugs; although it always appears as the opening segment, not every episode has a Tex Avery segment.
* Einstone: A brilliant caveman who is the world's first inventor, trying to teach the other cave people how to be civilized with his inventions; a play on the name UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein, he's also loosely based on another one of Tex Avery's cartoons, "The First Bad Man."
* Ghengis & Khannie: Ghengis the Lionhearted leads his army across the world to conquer in the name of his Emperor and meets a young female panda named Khannie who tends to ruin his conquering plans; a play on the name GenghisKhan, the former is based on the lion from "Slap Happy Lion".
* Maurice & Mooch: Maurice the Chicken outwits Mooch the Fox who tries to eat him, the former based on the canary character from "King-Size Canary."
* Pompeii Pete: A short bumbling Roman supercenturion from Pompeii was buried in lava and 2,000 years later is free to live in the modern world, annoying a businessman named Dan.
* Power Pooch: A normal dog gained superpowers after licking a superhero's shoe, becoming a superhero himself along with his blue cat sidekick Little Buddy.
* Freddy the Fly: An obnoxious fly bugs an obese billionaire named Amanda Banshee, the former loosely based on one of Tex Avery's earlier characters, Homer the Homeless Flea.

* PublicDomainSoundtrack: Both the show, and most (but not all) of the segments has an original theme based on PD music (e.g., ''Home on the Range'' for the Tex Avery segment, ''If You're Happy and You Know it'' for Einstone, ''Home Sweet Home'' for Maurice and Mooch, The ''Can-Can'' for the show itself, etc).
* RedHeadedHero: Tex Avery
* RichBitch: Amanda Banshee, oh so much. She uses her servants as furniture, for once thing.
* ShoutOut: One "Maurice and Mooch" short has an Elmer Fudd-like hunter carrying a rabbit. Another Bugs-ish bunny showed up in a Tex cartoon. Amanda once saw Red's face in her mirror. One Power Pooch short was pretty much a rehash of "King-Size Canary". There were quite a few nods to the master, actually.
** Unintentional Shoutout to BOWSER, because one episode had a clip of him roaring from Videogame/MarioKart64. Apparently, the guy in charge of the sfx for the episode thought it was a StockSoundEffect
* TokenMiniMoe: Exaggerated with Khannie.
* YellowPeril: The Emperor
