In the introductory 30 second song, before the three cartoons, the imaginary stork drops a "little bundle" of him, as he was born, in Taylor, Texas. On the page, last names show Smith and Jones, were crossed out, meaning those two were the previous little bundles that the stork had just delivered, before him. Above their last names is February 26th, 1908, which was Tex Avery's date of birth. Additional fact, Tex Avery's lifetime was from Wednesday, February 26th, 1908 to Tuesday, August 26th 1980, equaling 3,782 weeks & 6 days, also equaling 26,480 days, which contains all 5 even numerals, by sheer coincidence.

If there was a single sentence review contest, my entry for this 1997 series would be "Not even remotely like Tex Avery".
New viewers would probably find the above statement a little harsh, but for those of us who were raised on the screwball antics of the late Tex Avery would find the criticism well justified.
This cartoon series seems to go against every formulistic gag that the classic cartoons used to follow. If the classic cartoons were known for their minimum dialog and maximum slapstick humour, than this new series is the complete polar opposite.
Before I was through with the second episode, I ardently wished that the characters would just shut up instead of producing cringe worthy jokes that were supposed to be funny.
Or if the classic cartoons charm relied on the complete unpredictability of their story lines, then this new series had plot lines you could see a mile off.
All in all, this series just felt like it was put together to cash in on Tex Avery's memory and I can imagine a huge sigh of relief escaping from the lips of hardcore fans when the series finished its run.
Definitely not worth viewing unless you'd like to add extra criticism!
