The Wacky World of Tex Avery is a French-American-Canadian cartoon series co-produced by DiC Entertainment (now WildBrain) and created by Brody Dowler, running for two seasons and 65 half-hour episodes from 1997 to 1998.

It is an attempt to pay homage to famed MGM animator Tex Avery's cartoon style, with seven original segments (three per episode) including Tex Avery, about a cowboy of the same name who rides a goat and saves his girlfriend Chastity Nott whenever she is in the clutches of his nemesis Sagebrush Sid. The series was criticized for failing to capture the spirit of Tex Avery's genius.

Fat and Fatter (S01E23a)

In a reverse version of the typical weight loss episode inspired by King-Size Canary, Tex and Sid compete against each other by gaining a ludicrous amount of weight in belief that Chasity prefers men with extra meat on their bones.

Count Danula (S01E23c)

In a Pompeii Pete cartoon two segments after Fat and Fatter, Danula, who is basically Dan as a vampire, takes a bucket of water to cool his tongue and ends up waterlogged a couple of shots later, only to find out that he has been drinking holy water.

Queen Khannie (S01E51b)

When Genghis goes to conquer Tiny Island, Queen Khannie (a giant Khannie) thinks he is her new toy. She has a tea party and fills Genghis with tea, which also bursts him.
