Only good as a small primer for new Tex Avery fans
30 October 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

This 7 minute short featurette can be located on Disc one of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2 (next to the episode "the Heckling Hare"). And features a vintage interview with the late great Tex Avery. Sure, it's a bit on the shallow side, but it's worth watching for fans who just got into Tex Avery fairly recently. For old-school fans of his will NOT learn anything new about him in the least. This is a small vintage piece of footage that merely is content with gently skimming the surface of his work, and not getting into anything deeper. So watch it with that in mind.

My Grade: C
