Chuck Jones is an american animator that was born in 1912 and died at 2002. He created many cartoon shorts like the Looney Tunes and the Merrie Melodies film series at Warner Brothers. He studied at the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, California. After working briefly at the studio of former Walt Disney in 1933 he signed on as an assistant animator with the Warner Brothers cartoon unit run by Leon Schlesinger. Jones directed his first short, The Night Watchman, in 1938; like most of his early efforts, it imitated Disney’s timing, pacing, and design. His own style emerged in the late 1940s and featured minimal design, precision timing, and highly exaggerated poses and facial expressions, all of which served to explore the psychological depths of the characters. Jones refined the established personalities of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, and Porky Pig and created the Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Pepe LePew, and Marvin Martian.
