In the Movies he also wanted a pig. In the cartoon version, he is seen entering carrying a jar of flies after his sister runs outside crying. Avery goes to the fair and has a good time. When he sees Wilbur crying, unknown to him that Charlotte died, he taunts Wilbur thinking that he's just having a good time. In the live action movie, he is seen carrying a slingshot when he walks into the kitchen and sees his sister bottlefeeding Wilbur.
In "Miracles Do Happen", Avery Arable attacked Charlotte's 3 daughters--Joy, Aranea, and Nellie--resulting in Nellie getting stuck inside a garbage can and Avery destroying half of all the eggs and milk in the cargo while the Zuckermans and Arables are ready evacuate from Maine and find a new home in Alaska. He got grounded for his destructive behavior and locked in the manure hauler with Wilbur's manure as punishment. He is later seen with Henry Fussy in trying to deliver anti-cancer medicine to his sick sister, but is sabotaged by an evil wolverine named Carcajou who hates humans and wants the children to die of cancer.
