Animator: Tex Avery (1908- 1980)

Tex Avery was an American animator, cartoonist and director, famous for producing animated films or short film during the Golden Age of Hollywood Animation. He worked mainly for Warner Bros., but also for MGM Studios, inventing characters, such as Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Droopy and also developing others such as Porky Pig, and also animating them.

Avery's way of directing encouraged many animators to produce cartoons where the medium allowed them to, for instance, animate the characters to do things that couldn't be done in live-action films. Creating funny yet painful cartoons of Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny.

I just loved that cartoon with Droopy and the wolf convict - there's a classic bit when the convict appears to run out of the frame of the cartoon...
