Actor Butch Patrick Visits the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity

CK and BP

Butch Patrick, perhaps best known for his role as Eddie Munster in the hit TV series (1964-66) "The Munsters" also starred in Chuck Jones's feature film, "The Phantom Tollbooth" as Milo, the young boy bored with everything, stopped by the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity yesterday to meet with Chuck's grandson, Craig Kausen and to pick-up his original Chuck Jones drawing that had been reframed for him. While there, Butch agreed to create a canvas for the Red Dot Auction, scheduled for May 11 at the Center.

Chuck Jones, Actor

Thanks to all of our readers who responded to yesterday's post and the question:  what films did Chuck Jones act in (theatrical & TV), other than Joe Dante's 1984 "Gremlins"?  Here's the complete list:

1.  The Pogo Birthday Special (TV special,) 1969: voice actor, Porky Pine, Bun Rab, Basil the Butterfly

2.  The Phantom Tollbooth (feature film,) 1970:  man sitting on trolley next to Milo (Butch Patrick)

3.  Horton Hears a Who! (TV special,) 1970: voice actor, Junyer Kangaroo

4.  The Curiosity Shop (TV show,) 1971

5.  Gremlins (Feature film,) 1984: man in bar

6.  Innerspace (Feature film,) 1987: grocery store customer

You may see that IMDB.com lists a role in the feature film "The Arrogant" from 1987 that they say Chuck Jones appeared in, but that is not confirmed by the Jones family.
