Charles Martin "Chuck" Jones' career spanned almost seventy years, during which he made over 300 animated films. He was nominated for eight Academy Awards, won three, and received an honorary Lifetime Achievement Oscar for his work in the animation industry.
Born on Sept. 21, 1912 in Spokane, WA., Jones grew up in Hollywood. In 1932, his first job in the fledgling animation industry, was as a cel washer for former Disney animator, Ubbe Iwerks at his Iwerks' Productions.
In 1936 Jones was hired by Friz Freleng as an animator for the Leon Schlesinger Studio (later sold to Warner Bros.). He worked his way up from cel washer to assistant animator, then animator, and finally in 1938, Jones directed his first animated short film, "The Night Watchman." During the Golden Age of animation Jones helped bring to life many of Warner Bros. most famous characters - Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and so forth.
When Warner Bros. closed their animation studio in 1962 Jones moved to MGM where he created new episodes of the Tom and Jerry cartoon series. While there, in addition to creating, producing and directing "The Phantom Tollbooth" (1970) and "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (1966), Jones directed the Academy Award-winning film, "The Dot and the Line" (1965). This is a personal favorite of mine that I highly recommend. You can find it, and all the other animations mentioned here, on YouTube.
In 1962 Jones established his own production company, Chuck Jones Enterprises. He produced nine half-hour animated films for television including "Rikki Tikki Tavi" and "The White Seal", both of which were based on stories in Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book". One of Jones' films, the Wagnerian mini epic, "What's Opera, Doc?" (1957) was inducted into the National Film Registry in 1992. Since then, the Smithsonian's National Film Registry has also added his "Duck Amuck" (1953) and "One Froggy Evening" (1955) to its roster of the most important films of the 20th century.
Jones wrote two exceptional autobiographies - "Chuck Amuck" (1989) and "Chuck Reducks" (1996). Chuck Jones died at the age of 89 in Feb., 2002. ##chuckjones#bugsbunny#daffyduck#warnerbros
