Random Take: Sludge

Here is a scene from the original Transformers movie.
Dinobot Sludge does a cartoon "take" when he is struck by Devestator.
Sludge's eyes pop right off his face. That bit of animation escaped me until I looked at it frame by frame.

There are plenty of "takes" in the animaniacs DVD set. Unfortanely, they don't have the cartoon, " Method to her Madness" with Slappy. I like your drawings: very Alverez.

Also, I want to start a movie script about the life of Tex Avery. Do you know of any misc. facts about him that I can use?

Thanks for the kind words! I find Dave Alverez very inspirational.
Method to her Madness will probably be included on the next set.

Do you have a copy of "Tex Avery:The MGM Years, 1942 - 1955" by JOhn Canemaker? That has lots of stories about his career...

I have the one book where it has Red Hot riding Hood on the cover, but I don't have the Tex Avery interview book with Bugs Bunny on the cover.

That's the one with a silouette of bugs and the cover's green right?
I don't have that one either...
I have a bio of Bill Hanna that mentions Tex.
