Chuck Jones backstage at the Academy Awards after receiving a Lifetime Achievement Oscar at the 1996 awards ceremony.

In 1996, Chuck Jones was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Oscar at the Academy Awards ceremony held in Hollywood.  Robin Williams, with whom Jones had worked with on "Mrs. Doubtfire" made the presentation in his inimitable style.

Linda Jones Clough, Chuck's daughter (and only child,) is also an Academy member and as tradition has it, every year attends the awards show with a different family member.  This year, it's going to be Charley, her grandson (and son of Chuck Jones Center for Creativity's chairman, Craig Kausen.) 

The big news is that Charley will be wearing Chuck's tuxedo from 1996!  So tune in to the red carpet extravaganza and keep an eye out for this handsome young man accompanied by the beautiful Linda Jones Clough.
