Looney Tunes

At one time we knew Chuck Jones a little bit. Thought of him when we wrote this passage from Of Mutts And Men, the most recent Chet and Bernie novel (in a series that can be read in any order):

Whatever was coming next – sure to be brilliant, since Bernie’s always the smartest human in the room – remained unsaid, because at that moment the perp reached the edge of the roof and just kept going. Yes, with his legs churning in the air, high over the alley separating this warehouse from the next one! This was something I’d seen in cartoons – of which Bernie and I had watched many in the period after his divorce from Leda – but never in real life. Nothing beats real life, amigo.

    I spent a lot of time watching cartoons when I was a kid! The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Looney Tunes (Bugs Bunny was my favorite), Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse, Top Cat, Scooby Doo, Herman and Catnip…just to name a few…

    I still enjoy watching all those classic cartoon to this day!

    Happy BooBear day to all!

    Chuck Jones was a genius.

    He also directed the original How the Grinch Stole Christmas animated short. You can see his touch in some of the Grinch’s facial expressions.
