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.
