Chuck Jones was bornon 21 September 1912 in Spokane, American, is Animator, Filmmaker, Cartoonist, Author, Artist, & Screenwriter. ‘Animation isn't the illusion of life, it is life!’ was one of the famous quotes by Chuck Jones who carved a niche for himself outside the famous Walt Disney studios. He brought life to cartoons with his prolific animation skills. A young Jones started his endeavours by using the wasted stationery of his father and set out to make it big in the world of animation. He started off by washing cels and then tip-toed his way to turn Warner Bros. into a big animation studio and left behind a great repertoire of work. Later, he went on to produce the famous ‘Tom and Jerry’ series with MGM Studios and also adapted the Dr. Seuss books into animation films. He once said remarking on his cartoon creations that ‘Bugs is an aspiration. Daffy is a realization’. The quote reflected how he drew from human traits and represented them in his cartoons. In his later years, he chose to pass on his skills through lectures and seminars and also inspired films like ‘The Emperor's New Groove’ and ‘Lilo & Stitch’. Jones passed away leaving behind an unmatched legacy in the field of animation and cartoons.
