Chuck Jones, legendary animation director and artist, best known for his work on the Looney Tunes cartoon series, died on Friday. Jones helped bring to life many of Warner Bros. most famous characters — Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and Porky Pig – and he created Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Marvin Martian, Pepe le Pew, Michigan J. Frog and many others. There is some marvelous animation being done today, but nothing can match the six-minute Warner Bros. cartoons from the Golden Age.
