As the creator of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and the director of many of the "Looney Tunes" cartoons, Tex Avery has had an enormous influence of American animation and comedy. Joe Adamsom guides the reader around Avery's flipped-out universe - surreal, violent and erotic. Through interviews with Avery's gagmen and script writers, together with sensitive analyses of such classics as "Kingsize Canary" and "Red Hot Riding Hood", and with dozens of original sketches and a filmography, the book provides a comprehensive study of an important pioneer of animation.

A grand, classic tribute to the great gagman of animation 1998/10/5
投稿者 Modemac - (

Written more than a decade before "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" made it okay for adults to enjoy animated cartoons, Joe Adamson's labor-of-love tribute to cartoon pioneer Tex Avery is a must-have for any scholar of animation. Containing perhaps the only extensive interview with Tex Avery before his death before 1980, the book looks back on the illustrious career of a shy, quiet man whose only ambition was to make people laugh. Walt Disney and Chuck Jones are the two most famous names of the Golden Age of cartoons, but they both owe a debt to Tex Avery. In addition to the personal look at Avery's life, the book contains a complete filmography of Avery's theatrical cartoons, plus interviews with the people Tex worked with over the years. While the 1996 book "Tex Avery" by John Canemaker provided a look at the more tragic side of Avery's career (as well as a wealth of background and behind-the-scenes material), Adamson's book is still the definitive look at the fun-loving, innocent personality of the creator of Droopy Dog, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the man who broke the shackles of "realism" in animation by declaring, "In a cartoon you can do anything!"

The word "genius" evokes images of Albert Einstein, or Jean-Paul Sartre. And yet, genius cuts accross many art forms and industries.

The cartoon was still in infant stage when Tex Avery entered it's realm. It was a convergence of fortuitous timing. He joined a team of almost limitless creativity, and a studio that gave him almost limitless leeway. The results were spectacular. His style, his passion, and his brilliant and bizarre sense of humor were allowed to move to the fore. Millions watched his cartoons, came to imitate and savor his characters, and love a set of possibilies that up to then, had seemed impossible.

The circumstances Avery created made people laugh in incredulity. The plotlines were frenetic, and the action and stories were mesmerizing. Today, with many of his cartoons more than 70 years old, they still have a fresh, timeless energy about them. They are classic, and can be enjoyed by adults and children too young to remember their inception.

This book captures Avery in the final years of his life. It shows a living legend, who is too modest to comprehend his greatness. It is a quick read, and both tells his story, and the story of the cartoon characters he created. Many are part of the fabric of our culture. Bugs Bunny, Chillie Willie, Woody Woodpecker and Droopy. There are many pictures, and some funny stories of the eccentric personalities that populated the movie studios during that prolific and seminal time of Hollywood.

By all means, read this book!

Tex Avery was one of the greatest cartoonists and comic geniuses that ever lived. Part of his success in the animation industry was doing "not trying to compete with Disney, but rather do what Disney wouldn't dare to do". He was more interested in getting a laugh out of his audience.
Unfortunately, there are so few good history books out there about non-Disney animation studios. Part of that is that Disney has the best track record of preserving its history, that not very many other studios come close. Another reason might be a lack of interest with the general public.
Most of this book is filled with essays by fans and other filmmakers. It really should have been more of a biography. What makes this book worth the purchase alone are the interviews with Tex Avery himself and two with his key personnel, especially since these are the only interviews with Tex that are available to the public (to my knowledge). There is also a complete filmography with anecdotes for some titles (which is outdated, since the dates for the WB cartoons are based on copyright dates rather than the release dates). Another downside is that all the images are black and white. There is another book on Tex Avery by John Canemaker that should be worth checking out.
Here's hoping that another well researched book on Tex Avery will be published in the future (as well as more interviews).
Very informative, with a couple of reservations 2011/9/18

Adamson presents a wealth of information on Avery's work. The only two criticisms I kind find, would be the lack of color photos showing Avery's amazing animation and Adamson's feeble attempts at being critical of Avery's films. I like reading about Avery and the history of animation, I couldn't care less about his personal opinions of the shorts he examines.

A poor buy 2002/6/6

This book is worthless because :
- it offers little insight into Avery's genius
- it's short on the man's biography
- it focuses too much on the cartoons
- a large portion of it is made up of interviews with Avery and others; it's easy to write books that way, using text that's already written
- every picture is in black and white; not a single one in colour; would you like to watch Avery's cartoons in b & w ?
- it is printed on mediocre paper; when you're reading a page you are very much aware of the pictures printed on the other side of the page
- it's grossly overpriced
