A key member of the team that developed Daffy Duck and Porky Pig, Jones also directed more than 50 Bugs Bunny cartoons.

Audience Reviews for Chuck Jones: Extremes and Inbetweens - A Life in Animation

A documentary about the man behind the best Warner Brother cartoons there are. Watching it, it's easy to see how his personality bled into his work. I like the insight he gives into characters you wouldn't think could be so (heh heh) three dimensional: Bugs and Daffy for example. This is such a great documentary.
