I’ve been a lifelong fan of the work of Chuck Jones. If you don’t know the name, you’ve must assuredly seen his work. Chuck is the man behind cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd. He also directed the classic animated version of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”.
Tonight at 8pm, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is running a half-hour documentary on Chuck Jones (only a half hour, TCM?). They’re also following it up with some great cartoons and shorts, including classics like “What’s Opera Doc” and “Duck Amuck”. They’re also showing some harder-to-find pieces like the Oscar-winning “The Dot and the Line”.
If you’re like me, and Saturday mornings in front of the Bugs Bunny Show are a cherished memory, you should check it out.
Just set up a new Twitter account for Happy Accidents at twitter.com/HAcomic. I already had a Twitter account I’ve been using for a while, but figured I’d tweet separately to this one, just to keep things a bit more focused. So head over and follow me to get updates on new comics, artwork and blog posts.
