Wonderful
21 September 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The only complaint I could possibly have with this documentary is that I really wish it had been made many years earlier--when Tex Avery was still alive and could have participated in it. Because he and many of his contemporaries had died before 1988 when Turner Entertainment made the show, it lacks a wide number and range of commentaries and relies mostly on younger folks who didn't work on him or a few oldsters (such as Chuck Jones and June Foray). But regardless, it IS well worth seeing--especially because his best work was all made at MGM...and Turner owned these cartoons and could splice them into the documentary. Speaking of that, though, showing his advertising cartoons would have been great. They DID talk about it but showed no examples. Again, I cannot fault the Turner folks-- they seem to have tried their best. Overall, VERY entertaining and a documentary that gives wonderful insight into the best director of short cartoons of all time.
