Tex... nuff said.

(i'm leaving this post for now, but sadly the shorts I had linked to are no longer available)
Most of my posts these days are less descriptions about my day or thoughts, but rather a record of something cool i've found on the web. Something i want to remember. These shorts (click image) i found over on youtube.com are perfect examples of that. Results from a Tex Avery search. It seems someone or some-many have ripped and uploaded nearly a hundred classic movies i loved as a kid.

As a growing animator I often get into discussions about inspiration or what might have been the one thing to truly inspire your chosen career. For me it was the movie TRON, without question. However when i think about shorts, its undeniably the Tex Avery work for MGM. My favorite by far was Deputy Droopy. I still remember rolling around with laughter as the characters swapped heads to enable the other to scream away from the jailhouse. (you'll know that if you've seen it) These shorts simply were it! Yeah I liked Looney Toons stuff too, but they didn't compair to the entertainment I got out of the many shorts on this link. Sadly they still have yet to release a comprehensive Tex Avery DVD set in the US.
