"Tex Avery Show" Episodes - The Second Series

Beginning with its Sunday, January 10, 1999 primetime telecast, "The Tex Avery Show" began to present a new *series* of episodes with an emphasis on showcasing MGM cartoons not previously seen on the program. However, these episodes are not shown in the common themed format, and the first telecast that aired under this policy with these three titles on the date mentioned above were "Northwest Hounded Police", "The Hick Chick" and "The Counterfeit Cat".

On the Sunday, October 1, 2000 telecast, an MGM cartoon titled "The Hungry Wolf" (not directed by Tex Avery) was aired instead of "Hound Hunters" as announced. Almost all of the Warner Bros. cartoons currently playing on "The Tex Avery Show" are "dubbed versions", except "Detouring America".

Warner Bros. Cartoons Directed By "Fred Avery" Aired As Of 12/29/2002 (12):


MGM Cartoons Directed By "Tex Avery" Aired As Of 12/29/2002 (59):
