Tex Avery: King of Cartoons by Joe Adamson
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.
