The director of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Road Runner cartoons discusses his childhood influences, gives advice on how to draw, and reveals how his characters were created
  • without him there would not be any bugs bunny daffy duck and all the other looney tuned characters . he is truly the shining star of aanimation and with mel blanc's voice talent their volume of output speaks loudly how much animation is indebted to these 2 talents . truly no other comes close to their contributions in the pantheon of animation. kudos to them.

  • :)

  • Interesting life story as well as a wonderful book, not only on animation, but on the practice of art habits.

  • Great item and seller, thks .

  • Chuck Jones is as seminal an individual in Hollywood annals as any of the giants whose stars grace the walk of fame. His animation of characters he has brought to life are as real as John Wayne or Humphrey Bogart. Today, four generations have grown up watching characters that have become a part of an American shared experience. the character traits of Bugs Bunny, Foghorn Leghorn, Yosemite Sam, Daffy Duck and others are known throughout all strata of society.

    Chuck Jones looks back, in words and illustrations in this autobiography, from an age of 84 years and tells his story with humor, openness, and illustration. One might think that he was richly compensated for the joy and laughter he brought into millions of households, but, at the end of his career, he was all but flat broke.

    But he did have his story to tell, and it is worth both seeing and reading. He not only paints a picture of studio life in the early years of Hollywood, and the tremendous comaraderie and fun enjoyed by him and colleagues, but also the inspiration for each of his characters, and how they developed and were used in storylines.

    Chuck Jones was an American treasure, as well as an icon. This book is worth seeking out.

  • This book starts where his other book, Chuck Amuck left off. It makes mention of a more recent update to his classic cartoon One Froggy Evening entitled Another Froggy Evening, which features a cameo of Siskel and Ebert and Chuck himself! It again pays tribute to his co-workers, particularly Friz Freleng, tells more about he came up with his ideas, and gives pointers on cartoon making to others interested in the field of animation. There's nobody better to offer advice! Also, be sure to check out the TV documentary of Mr. Chuck Jones the night before Thanksgiving (I'm sure it will be aired again!).

  • I was a little disappointed with this tome. Maybe I was expecting the same vein as "Chuck Amuck" but at times the text rambled and wandered about. I loved the sketches, cells and other artwork, which is why I got this book in the first place. Its fascinating to watch a character develop both in the mind of the artist as well as on paper. Animated cartoons have come a LONG way from the 1920's and Jones played a TREMENDOUS part in bringing them up to quality. It's a shame we lost Chuck and it seems like there is really no one to fill in for him. But I doubt that anyone could, his work is that good. And sad to say, the current crop of cartoons being churned out now is FAR BELOW Jone's standards.

  • This biography goes in deep into Chuck Jones' life. Chuck stresses the importance of "character" & "believability"in character animation. His life experiences from childhood to today can be seen reflected into his body of work. But best of all; the book is filled with animation tips which are very useful for anyone studying animation. A must have!
