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?)
