“Hare Conditioned”

We can't let Friday slip by without a Chuck Jones cartoon.  "Hare Conditioned" dropped into theaters nationwide on August 11, 1945 starring Bugs Bunny–"A rabbit's woik is never done"–and a character based on Throckmorton P. (Philharmonic) Gildersleeve, a popular character from radio's "Fibber McGee and Molly".  Much hilarity ensues.  Directed by Charles M. Jones with story by Tedd Pierce.  Animation provided by Ken Harris, Ben Washam, Basil Davidovich and Lloyd Vaughn.

The Night Watchman

We're busy curating the exhibition for the Chuck Jones Experience opening in Las Vegas at Circus Circus (truly, it's coming, promise!) One of the exhibitions will feature some marvelous telegrams and a charming letter from Chuck's brother Dick (Richard Jones, who also worked as an in-betweener and animator at Schlesinger Studios and for a while was a part of Chuck's unit; after enlisting in the Service during WWII, went on to make quite a career for himself as a noted photographer and painter,) on the release of this, "The Night Watchman", his first directorial effort (although they called it then 'supervision'.)  Here's the letter from his brother, followed by the cartoon.

"Planet TNEZ is a creative space for artists, or anyone really, who would like to come and be able to create as well as show their work.  I call it an "Artistic Experiment of Creative Thinking and Design". My graphic design background has inspired me to express myself in more traditional and at times, non-traditional, mediums and I want to share the happiness and joy that expression brings me with you."
