Please contact me if you would like any more info about this item. Chuck Jones was born in 1912 in Spokane, Washington. He was raised in Hollywood where he witnessed the talents of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. As a child he occasionally worked as an extra in Mac Sennett comedies. Jones graduated from Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles (now California Institute of the Arts). He often drew pencil portraits for the price of one dollar each and sold them on Olvera Street. In 1932, Jones got his first job as a cel washer for Ubbe Iwerks, a former Disney Animator. In 1936 Jones began working for Leon Schlesinger Studio (later sold to Warner Bros.) after being hired by Friz Freleng as an animator. After Warner Bros closed Jones briefly worked for Disney before moving to MGM where he worked to create new episodes of Tom and Jerry and directed features such as The Dot and the Line, which went on to win an Academy Award for Animated Short Film. Chuck Jones' work has been honored at film festivals and museums throughout the world, including a one-man retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. His autobiography, Chuck Amuck, appeared in 1989, now in its fifth printing.
