5'8''?! Heh-Heh! You're kiddin', right? I hate to break it to ya, Pete, but Tex Avery was one short hombre! In "Droopy and Friends: A Laugh Back", Don Dougherty says that "a lot of what we saw on the screen was simply Tex Avery, THE PERSON". So Droopy, "the LITTLE dog who always wins", was Tex's alter-ego. As for his height, he didn't look an INCH over 5'6''!
