Influential figure who directed some of Hollywood's finest animated films of the 1940s and 50s, creating such memorable characters as Chilly-Willy the penguin and Droopy the dog. Avery's cartoons--often scripted by Heck Allen--offered a slightly more absurd and anarchic alternative to the work of his contemporaries Chuck Jones and Friz Freleng.
