The King of Cartoons finally gets his due! We examine the stunning new Blu-Ray release from Warner Archive with 19 of his classic MGM cartoons that illustrate just how Tex Avery was a master of his medium right down to the frame. Highlights include: Bob remembers the time he met Tex! The bad camerawork in these films! And just how much Screwy Squirrel is pure torment? We also do a scene by scene breakdown of Wags to Riches, which follows Spike's single-minded mission to murder Droopy.
