The Tex Avery Show is an animated showcase of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Warner Bros. cartoon shorts prominently by animator Tex Avery (a.k.a. Fred Avery). The showcase premiered on the Cartoon Network in 1996 (not long after the Time Warner-Turner merger allowed for common ownership of all but four of Avery's cartoons), and was taken off the air in 2002, while reruns continued to be shown on Cartoon Network until June 2004. It was soon re-broadcast on Boomerang.

Second series[edit]

The primetime telecast of the new Tex Avery Show debuted on March 19, 1998. This series put a large emphasis on showcasing MGM cartoons that have never graced the show. Despite the newly contrived notion, most of these episodes were not shown; although the first telecast aired under this policy were: The Early Bird Dood It, Dumb-Hounded and Red Hot Riding Hood.
