Celebrating a Century of Cartoon Brilliance

Not sports-related but important nonetheless...

One hundred years to the day -- February 26, 1908 -- a genius was introduced to the world. Frederick "Tex" Avery would go on to become one of the most prolific and influential cartoonists in history, responsible for iconic animated characters Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck as well as dozens of hilariously entertaining (and risque) shorts.

Here, in honor of the great Tex Avery, is a sampling of his works:

"Magical Maestro"

"Red Hot Riding Hood"

"Swing Shift Cinderella"

"The Cat That Hated People"

"Who Killed Who?"
