Chuck Jones

Birthday: Sep 21, 1912
Birthplace: Spokane, Washington, USA
As a child growing up in Los Angeles, watched Charlie Chaplin and Mack Sennett filming their silent movies. Joined the Warner Bros. animation unit in 1933 and began directing the Merrie Melodies series in 1938. Among his most well-known one-shot cartoons is "One Froggy Evening" (1955), featuring a singing frog that, 40 years later, was christened Michigan J. Frog and adopted as the symbol of the WB Network. Directed classic Warner Bros. cartoons such as a Wagner-singing Bugs Bunny in "What's Opera, Doc?" (1957) and Daffy Duck breaking the animated fourth wall in "Duck Amuck" (1953), and introduced characters such as the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. Animated TV specials include the adaptations How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966), based on the Dr. Seuss book, and Riki-Tiki-Tavi (1975), from the Rudyard Kipling short story. His 1989 autobiography, Chuck Amuck, features a foreword by fan Steven Spielberg, who used clips from Jones' cartoons in his films, including a sequence from the '53 Daffy Duck short "Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2 Century" in Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977). Live-action films featuring his animated sequences include 1990's Gremlins 2: The New Batch and 1993's Mrs. Doubtfire.
