A few words from Craig Kausen, Chuck Jones’s grandson on this elephant walk:
“Whether you’re an artist, an animator, a scientist, a veterinarian, or just an observer of life, you can probably get inspired and intrigued by this simple yet elegant six frame walk sequence created by Chuck Jones in the 1960s.
“Notice the bends in the joints, the weight of the steps, the rhythm of head movement, or the minor details of the tail.
“The details and small nuances are what historians discuss when they look at the work of Chuck Jones. He was a student of life and had the passion and the skill to translate his observations into character and movement.”
