Tex Avery sends up television
19 June 2001 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

Tex Avery did a series of cartoons where he poked fun at things by showing how some aspect of life would be in the future, his target here being television. Interestingly, Avery was not fond of television, viewing it (somewhat correctly) as the enemy. Television is largely what killed the theatrically produced cartoon. So to a degree, Avery's barbs are less good-natured than usual in some cases. Devastatingly funny, its good that this one is in print. Highly recommended.
