George and Junior is an animated cartoon series directed by Tex Avery. The main characters are two bears. George is the small, mean and smart one, and Junior is the big and brainless one. The characters are obvious parodies of George and Lennie from "Of Mice and Men". The bears made their debut in the 1946 Tex Avery-directed Henpecked Hoboes. Though they technically died at the end of 1948's Half Pint Pygmy, they were later revived by Pat Ventura on the Hanna-Barbera anthology franchise What a Cartoon! in 1995.
