Trivia: The Wacky World of Tex Avery

  • Money, Dear Boy: According to Nancy Avery (daughter of the legendary cartoonist), she only approved the show to get her kids into college. Initially the cartoon's producers offered her a pretty derisory sum, pointing out that they technically didn't need her permission to make the show and that they'd do it whether she endorsed it or not. As a result, Nancy asked Chuck Jones for his advice on the matter; he told her that under the circumstances Tex would want his family to be financially secure more than anything else, and helped her negotiate a much more reasonable settlement.
  • Old Shame: Almost everyone who worked on the show regrets their involvement.
