Chuck Jones: Tribute To The Stars Of Termite Terrace

Chuck Jones     In a career that spanned nearly seventy years, Chuck Jones made over 250 films, won four Academy Awards, and was nominated for six others. Jones’ razor-sharp eye for character movement, his legendary sense of timing, and his beguilingly irreverent wit have combined to create some of the classic cartoons of all time, including Bully for Bugs, Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2 Century, Duck Amuck, Rabbit Seasoning, The Scarlet Pumpernickel, Robin Hood Daffy, A Scent of the Matterhorn, and Feed The Kitty.

Mr. Jones also created and directed some of the most popular and critically-acclaimed animated television specials in the history of the medium, including Dr. Sueuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Horton Hears A Who, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, Mowgli’s Brothers, and The White Seal.

On March 25, 1996, Mr. Jones’ work was celebrated with a special Lifetime Achievement Oscar, presented to Mr. Jones at the Academy Awards by Robin Williams. In addition, Chuck Jones has been honored with three other Oscars, non Academy Award nominations, a Museum of Modern Art retrospective, and a three-floor exhibition at Washington D.C.’s Capital Children’s Museum/National Center for Animation.

Mr. Jones died at the age of 89 in February 2002, but he leaves a legacy of brilliance, comedy, joy, color, and laughter that will live forever.
