FP090: Chuck Jones


From lowly cel washer to head of a cartoon studio bearing his name, Charles M. "Chuck" Jones was one of the great success stories in American animation. Jones' cartoons have the strongest and most definable style outside of Walt Disney's and are arguably much funnier. Jones maintained that he made his films for just one person--himself--and it shows in the adult qualities of his best work, although even the films he made for child consumption are easily enjoyed by adults.
