Oh Chuck is a great animator I love his stuff myself (Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry what not) Bugs Bunny for the win

Pity I'm not from America so I never got to meet him

I was lucky enough to meet him a couple of times. He drew me a picture of Pepe LePew, which I cherish to this day!

Awesome...this is awesome.

I always loved Chuck Jones' stuff while growing up. There needs to be more of his kind of work in the world.....

Thanks, it was a labor of love. (And I think the Pixar folks are doing a pretty good job of following in his footsteps... even referencing Jones's "Feed the Kitty" in "Monsters Inc.")

Indeed! Cartooning is one of the few professions where the majority of those who do it are accessible (and often more than happy to share their insights and mutual delight of the craft).

These are fantastic! I'm so jealous you got to meet him in person! His work is truly incredible and he's also inspired me to become a cartoonist (along with a Mr. Tim Burton). Anyhow, this is a wonderful sort of tribute to him! Thank you for making it.

Thank you. They say "Never meet your heroes," but they were utterly wrong in Chuck's case. I actually met him twice (the second time at his studio) and he was amazing to talk to and delightfully kind to my wife and I.

I recently got to meet Chuck's grandson, who's a driving force behind the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity [link] and was delighted when he told me that my tribute was one of his favorites. My wife had a hard time driving after that, what with my head swelled to fill up the car.

Wow, that's truly incredible! I wish I could've' met him before he passed on, but it's good to know that he was as amazing to meet in person as I've heard he was. He must've been such an interesting person to talk with, and I wish I could've had the privilege.

Haha, my head would've probably swelled up too if Chuck Jone's grandson had given me such a compliment :) That's just too awesome.
