Chuck Jones 

By: Knox White 

Famous Animator Project

I chose Chuck Jones because I like the Looney Tunes shows and somtimes watch the online. I was introduced to them by my father and have loved them ever since. He is considered a pioneer, I think, because he set the standards for modern cartoon comedies. Most of his films are considered classics by many people and critics. I was happy to write the biography of Chuck Jones because I admired his work and his drawings

Introduction

    Chuck Jones was born on June 24, 2008 in Spokane, Washington. He grew up in Los Angeles watching Charle Chaplin and other comedians. Their timing and type of comedy strongly influenced his later films. He studied at the Chouinard Art Institute. After graduating, he went to work for, at that time, a partner of Walt Disney Studios called UB Iwerks. He later transfered to Warner Brother's Studios. 

      While working at Warner Bros., He created many characters such as Elmer Fudd, Wile E. Coyote, Roadrunner. He also "adopted" Bugs Bunny who was created by Tex Avery. He put his characters into hilarious cartoons where the character's luck never runs out. Many of his 300 films are considered classics even if they only lasts six minutes. His many characters are also considered classics and are world renound. He also has won three Oscars. Although he may be dead, his work lives on at The Muesume of Moving Image and in the hearts of loyal viewers.
