Quotes

Chuck Jones: I think you must learn - if you're in any filmmaking - you must respect the single frame. And there are twenty-four of those per second. If you don't respect that single frame you're in the same boat with a musician who does not respect an eighth note or a sixteenth note or a thirty-second note or whatever. You have to find the smallest unit and you have to love it and believe that one will make a difference. One frame to me will make the difference between whether the thing's funny or not.

Great Account on Chuck Jones
9 March 2002 | by (Austin, Tx.) – See all my reviews

This movie is a good film about the life and times of esteemed animator Chuck Jones. The one who made many of the cartoons that we know today (Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner, Pepe LePew, Sniffles the Mouse, and the list goes on.) He also contributed to every major Looney Tunes character we know today except Tom & Jerry. This movie is like Chuck Jones: Extremes and In Betweens, so all those who enjoyed that will most likely enjoy this. This would be a film recommended to all cartoon-lovers or people interested in anything about Chuck Jones. This might also be a good family film for those who wish to know and enjoy the "Merry Melodies" characters created and contributed by Chuck Jones. This is an o.k. movie that gives a good account of Chuck Jones life and I would recommend it to anyone interested.
