The Mad Genius of Tex Avery

Last night, I watched a documentary on Tex Avery, an MGM cartoon director considered (rightly) by many to be a legend in terms of redefining madcap comedy, and was inspired to post the following short [1949's "Bad Luck Blackie"] which I personally rank among the best cartoons ever made alongside "Duck Amuck" (1953), "Mouse in Manhattan" (1945), "Triplet Trouble" (1952), "Tee For Two" (1945), "Baby Puss" (1943), "Duck! Rabbit! Duck!" (1953), and "The Rabbit of Seville" (1950).
