    The Wolfie cartoons are all riots, and "Magical Miestro" (too bad CN edits it to death) is one of the most hilarious cartoons ever created! ...but practically everything he did at MGM was great. IMO, his WB stuff was a little more spotty, but I think "Thugs With Dirty Mugs" and his early Bugs Bunny cartoons like "A Wild Hare" and "Tortoise Beats Hare" are all good.

    Oh, and I almost forgot, his four Lantz Cartunes are favorites of mine: "I'm Cold," "Legend of Rockabye Point," "Sh-h-h-h!" and especially "Crazy Mixed Up Pup" with the wonderful plasma mix-up.

    I like all of Tex's MGM cartoons. But if I had to pick one, it would have to be "Happy Go Nutty". It is just 100% pure Tex Avery insanity. I love it.

    One favorite of mine would have to be "Rockabye Bear". My brothers and I used to laugh ourselves silly watching that one.

    If it weren't for Tex Avery, many modern-day animators who enjoy wacky and outrageous situations in cartoons wouldn't have a leg to stand on.

    Uncle Tom's Cabana
    Henpecked Hoboes

    I'm shocked no one has listed "Symphony in Slang". While not creating any lasting characters, the laughs are huge and the gags are quintessential Avery! It's a machine gun of cartoon comedy!

    mbaker has the right idea! ;)

    The one I always think of first is Rock-a-bye Bear, but I love them all. Tex was amazing!

    Here's a cool animated gif I found:
