Red Dot Surprise!

Turns out that Hank Ketchum, the creator of "Dennis the Menace" was a fan and admirer of the work of Chuck Jones. Although Mr. Ketchum has passed away, one of the official artists for his estate–we won't tell you who–has submitted this wonderful mixed media work to the Center's Red Dot Auction, to be held on Saturday, May 11 from 6 to 9 PM at the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity. Buy your tickets here! To view more of the submissions for the Red Dot Auction, click on the image below. To pre-bid, contact your Chuck Jones art consultant.

“It Held Me Smellbound.”

When Chuck Jones's 1949 short animated film starring PepĂ© le Pew, "For Scent-i-mental Reasons" won the Oscar for best short animated film at the Oscars held in March of 1950, he received many congratulatory telegrams (of course, he did not get the actual Oscar statuette, that honor was bestowed upon the producer, the irascible Eddie Selzer), but of all of the congratulations, the telegram below, from the inimitable Tex Avery is perhaps the most delightful.  This artfact will be on display at the soon-to-open Chuck Jones Experience at Circus Circus in Las Vegas.
