His 99th birthday
Yep, if the King of Cartoons, namely Tex Avery, were alive today he'd be celebrating his 99th birthday. Not only that, there'd be a lot of more entertaining animated shows on as well. That man's imagination could add life to anything.
Last year I celebrated his 98th birthday by drawing this keen picture. This year, I'll show one of the cartoons he was most known for.
Of course, if you do the math, you can easily figure out that 99 + 1 = 100!!!! Yes, next year at this time it will be Tex Avery's big centennial. It would be great if we could celebrate that all through 2008 with a big budget biographical movie about his life. The man is indeed deserving of such an honour. But, since that doesn't seem to be happening, we'll just have to find our own ways to celebrate. All bloggers and non-bloggers alike should each come up with some sort of tribute, preferably something that could be visible from space. Let's make 2008 the year of the Tex.
