At the Chuck Jones Experience (coming to Circus Circus–Las Vegas in October) there's going to be an entire display case devoted to all things Oscar® and Chuck Jones. There'll be all sorts of memorabilia, including congratulatory telegrams, letters and official Academay Award nominations. One letter that caught our eye (and interest) was this one from Walt Disney. He's responding to a letter from Chuck Jones (which we hope to find) and he has some interesting things to say:
