It's been 4 years now
On this date, February 22, 2002, Chuck Jones passed away. It's been exactly 4 years since that happened. Yes, I do know that he was mortal and that all mortals eventually die. But, he was one of those individuals who shouldn't have died, y'know?! He should have been allowed to drink the elixer used in that movie Death Becomes Her so that we would have the benefit of his artistic abilities forever. And that goes for everyone who was involved in making the golden era of animation as golden as it was. Names like Mel Blanc and Tex Avery come to mind.
Anyway, Chuck, we still miss you down here. Anyone reading this who feels the same way can leave a comment stating the same thing. Or, if you happen to be one of those unfortunate people who don't even know who Chuck Jones is, I'm sure that after reading some of the comments you'll find that out pretty fast.
