The Wacky World of Tex Avery: Pompeii Pete in the 21st Century

1997 NR

Creator of the "squash and stretch" cartoon style and a key figure behind many of the world's most beloved characters, including Bugs Bunny, Tex Avery is a giant in the world of animation -- and the mind behind this hilarious collection. Emerging from a 2,000-year-old lava rock, a good-hearted but inept Roman centurion named Pompeii Pete stumbles into the modern world, spreading chaos wherever he roams.
