Tex Avery cartoons

Last night, as I couldn’t sleep I decided to go through my Warner Bros DVDs and watch whatever cartoons were there. It happened that the first one I picked was the Katharine Hepburn collection, which had some Tex Avery MGM cartoons. Maybe because Tom and Jerry are so not for me (more of a Chuck Jones man myself - and yes, I am aware he directed T&J cartoons later on), I never paid much attention to these. I had a pleasant surprise. They were far more interesting and funny than I predicted (at least these ones), in particular two, a Droopy short called “Out Foxed” and “Swing Shift Cinderella”. I am definitely giving these a second chance.
