Chuck Jones: A Flurry of Drawings
by Hugh Kenner
Publisher: University of California Press 1994
Number of pages: 114
Kenner provides a brief, lively history of animation before focusing on the Warner Brothers animation studio, out of which came the wildest, most outrageous cartoons of the 1940s and 1950s. Chuck Jones was one of the directors responsible for the classics featuring the likes of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the Road Runner, and his mastery of the Warner characters' personalities, along with his distinctive comic sensibilities and sense of visual design, made his cartoons standouts. In his rambling essay, Kenner makes perceptive observations on Jones' career and the artistry behind his six-minute gems.
