Wild Thing

Well, everyone else is doing it!

Funny Story!

So I went to the John Canemaker shindig last night which great. Amongst other things Mr. Canemaker presented was a recent film 'Chuck Jones, memories of childhood'. A really great film in which Canemaker produced and helped conduct the interview with Jones. He proceeded to tell the crowd that he shared a close relationship with Jones that spanned thirty years until Jones' death a few years ago. During the Q&A, he asked if anyone had any questions on animation history, bearing in mind that he's met everyone from Richard Williams to the Nine Old Men, when one pompous culture vulture or college tutor dropped the clanger - 'Have you ever met Chuck Jones'? Fookin' hilarious!
