It's Chuck Jones' birthday

Yes, once again it's Chuck Jones' birthday. He'd be 95 years young had he not succumbed to pneumonia on that sad winter morning.

What great things can be said about Chuck Jones that haven't been said already? Should go on about his impressive body of work? Or maybe I should mention how his own style of drawing and timing influences artists since his heyday and continues to do so today. But a long sequence of paragraphs here would be quite dry and rather dull. So instead I'll embed on of his masterpieces. Enjoy:

Oh, and if you're curious about that Bob Clampett interview in 1969, you can read it here.


  1. Happy Birthday Chuck Amuck. But about the Clampett thing, he lied in that interview ?

  2. Well, it was more like a string of embelishments actually. But yeah, he committed as Daffy would say many "unmitigated fabrications" in that interview.

  3. Cool Blog, i did not know chucks bday just passed.
