Tex Avery's final animated project., 11 November 2002
Author: dootuss from PA

In 1979 Tex Avery was brought out of retirement to help his old colleagues William Hanna, and Joseph Barbera make a brand new cartoon series. Avery's dream was a return to the unbridled zaniness of his classic cartoons which he made at MGM studios many years ago. His last creation was a cartoon character named Kwicky Koala (known as Quicky earlier) who was the main character of his last project. Sadly, Mr. Avery died in 1980, only one year before his creation would be on the airwaves.

A year later in 1981, "The Kwicky Koala Show" premiered, and the show had four weekly segments. One of those featured the title character Kwicky Koala a eucalyptus eating marsupial who eluded the pursuit of his enemy Wilfred Wolf. Another segment featured a character named Crazy Claws who was a wildcat with a Groucho Marx style voice who would get out of trouble by using a combination of his razor sharp claws, and saying insulting banter. Another segment "Dirty Dawg" featured Dirty Dawg, and his friend Ratso living in a city garbage dump while fighting the man (in the form of police officer Bullhorn) while they only wanted a meal. The last segment "The Bungle Brothers" were one-minute fillers about two beagle brothers who wanted to be stars, but their ill-fated shots at fame failed spectacularly.

Sadly, without the late Tex Avery around to give the show a guiding hand, it was canned after its only season. Ths show was a final tribute to one of the greatest talents in animation. 10/10.
