Here’s an interesting deep dive into the amazing work of Warner Brothers master cartoonist Chuck Jones.

If you grew up watching Looney Tunes, then you know Chuck Jones, one of the all-time masters of visual comedy. Normally I would talk about his ingenious framing and timing, but not today. Instead, I’d like to explore the evolution of his sensibilities as an artist. To see the names of the films, press the CC button and select “Movie Titles.”

This video also had a wonderful animation consultant: Taylor Ramos (taylorkramos.tumblr.com)
