Tex Rex

Today is the centennial of Tex Avery's birth. It's like Christmas for animation fans.

Here are some celebrations of Tex that I've found online:

- The London Spectator blog post by Peter Hoskin

- An opinion piece from the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star in Virginia (score one for Fredericksburg over most other papers)

- "Avery Important Day" by Cashew Lou

- "Today is Tex Avery's 100th Birthday" by David Germain

- "Texcentennial" by Thad Komorowski

- "Happy 100th Birthday by Tex Avery" by J.E. Daniels

Update: Tribute and pictures from Kevin Langley.

(I wanted to write something myself but am going to have to wait until tomorrow. Sad, isn't it?)
