"Creative", "Wacky", "Genius" and "Talented" are just a few of the things
people say about legendary director and animator, Chuck Jones.
THE CHUCK JONES CLASSIC FILMS
While most people associate Animation Director Chuck Jones with the classic Warner
characters like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, Chuck was also involved in other animated
films we call them the Chuck Jones Classics.
Chuck Jones' esoteric tale of a spot & squiggle in "The Dot and the Line: A Romance in
Mathematics" won him an Academy Award in 1965.
Director Jones worked with the Dr. Seuss team in the late 1960s to create
the iconic "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" and "Horton Hears A Who".
"Phantom of the Toll Booth" (1970) was adapted from the children's book about the
adventures of a little boy as he enters an animated world of fun.
In the 1970's Jones created beautiful adaptations of Rudyard Kipling stories : Mowgli's
Bothers", "Riki Tikki Tavi" and "The White Seal".
In 1973 & 1974 Director Jones brought to life a trio of children's books celebrating a
Cricket living in New York City with humorous animation films.
An Animated segment of the live action film "Stay Tuned" (1992) featured the lead
characters turned into cartoon mice after being sucked into a magic TV satellite dish
Chuck Jones also added his talents to an animated segment of "Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)
featuring a zany fight between a cat and bird.
Chuck Jones creative life beyond the Warner Studio & Looney Tunes characters
encompasses some of his finest work. We are thrilled to be able to offer this
fine collection of original art showcasing Chuck Jones' Creative World!
