Frederick Bean "Fred/Tex" Avery (February 26, 1908August 26, 1980) was an American animator, cartoonist, and director. He created the characters of Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny and Droopy.

Avery's style of directing broke the mold of strict realism established by Walt Disney, and encouraged animators to stretch the boundaries of the medium to do things in a cartoon that could not be done in the world of live-action film. An often-quoted line about Avery's cartoons was, "In a cartoon you can do anything," and his cartoons often did just that.
