George and Junior are cartoon characters, two anthropomorphic bears created by Tex Avery for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. All of the original MGM shorts were directed by Tex Avery in the 1940s. Pat Ventura made two What A Cartoon! shorts starring George and Junior in 1995. They were inspired by the characters of George and Lennie from John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. Both George and Junior also make an appearance in The Tom and Jerry Show (2014) episode, "Shadow of a Doubt".
