France 2008 Tex Avery Thermochromic Souvenir sheet

Issue date 03 Mar 2008

France Post celebrated the centennial of the birth of Frederick 'Tex' Bean Avery, one of Hollywood's pioneers in the field of animated cartoons at the France Stamp Festival by issuing in 2008 three stamps depicting Droopy, the redheaded showgirl, and the wolf and a souvenir sheet depicting all three characters with Droopy with a Droopy the Dog caption "You know what? I'm Happy" in English and French printed with thermo-sensitive ink. This caption is not visible but with application of heat of the hands, the caption appears.

Many of Avery's Warner Brother's Production efforts--Porky's Duck Hunt, The Shooting of Dan McGoo, All This and Rabbit Stew--are among the best cartoons ever made. Avery also created characters as The Wolf, The Girl (an impossibly sexy lass, usually known as "Red"), Droopy the Dog ("Hello, you happy people"), and the short-lived but unforgettable Screwball Squirrel for the Droopy cartoon show.
