Storyline

This biography, shown on American television as part of the PBS "Great Performances" series, examines the life works of one of Hollywood's most celebrated animators, Chuck (Charles M.) Jones. He is best known for Warner Brothers cartoons featuring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, and Pepe LePew. Included are plenty of behind-the-scenes descriptions of how an animated film is made, and (best of all) many clips from Chuck's cartoons. Written by yortsnave

If you love cartoons, you'll love this!

I have many fond childhood memories of sitting in front of a TV set watching Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, and other Warner Brothers cartoon characters. If you love cartoons, you'll really enjoy this biography of renowned animator Chuck Jones. The best part of this film is the huge number of clips from his cartoons; it seems like most of the film is taken up with them (the more, the better!).
