Chuck Amuck- The Life and Times of an Animated Cartoonist By Chuck Jones.

For those of you who don’t know, Chuck Jones was an animator, cartoon artist, screenwriter, producer, and director of animated films, most memorably of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts for the Warner Bros. Cartoons studio. He directed many of the classic short animated cartoons starring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, Pepé Le Pew, Porky Pig and a slew of other Warner characters. Three of these shorts (Duck AmuckOne Froggy Evening and What’s Opera, Doc?) were later inducted into the National Film Registry. Chief among Jones’ other works was the famous “Hunting Trilogy” of Rabbit FireRabbit Seasoning, and Duck! Rabbit, Duck!(1951–1953).

There is a chapter in the book were Jones explains Wile E Coyote and Roadrunner and why he made them and created them, the chapter is called ‘Never Take A Right Turn At Albuquerque” and i would imagine that once ive read it fully along with the rest of the book, there will be many posts about what i have discovered.
