The Tex Avery Show is an animated showcase series that prominently features Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Warner Bros. cartoon shorts by famed animator Tex Avery. The showcase premiered on the Cartoon Network in 1996 (not long after the Time Warner-Turner merger allowed for the network's 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 April 2004. The series was then re-broadcast on Cartoon Network's sister network Boomerang. Some shorts, like Blitz Wolf, Big Heel-Watha, Uncle Tom's Cabana, and Half-Pint Pygmy, are skipped from the package entirely due to heavy racial stereotyping.

While most of the cartoons shown on the show wouldn't return to Cartoon Network after the show was removed, Screwy Squirrel cartoon "Screwball Squirrel" returned for a two-time April Fools airing in 2012.


Each 30-minute episode features 3 classic Tex Avery cartoons.
