Creator of the Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote and Pepé Le Pew, Chuck Jones also helped shape the beloved characters of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd. Films directed by Jones have earned three Oscars from a total of nine nominations. He received the Academy’s Honorary Award in 1995, and three of his films – “Duck Amuck” (1953), “One Froggy Evening” (1955) and “What’s Opera, Doc?” (1957) – have been named to the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.

In conjunction with the current exhibition “Chuck Jones: An Animator’s Life from A to Z-Z-Z-Z,” which celebrates his prolific career as an animator, the Academy showcases Jones’s magnificent cartoon oeuvre with this presentation of shorts made in quite diverse animation styles, including the three Oscar winners directed by Jones: “For Scent-Imental Reasons” (1949), the documentary short “So Much for So Little” (1949) and “The Dot and the Line” (1965); and the six Oscar-nominated shorts he directed: “Mouse Wreckers” (1948), “From A to Z-Z-Z-Z” (1953), “High Note” (1960), “Beep Prepared” (1961), “Nelly’s Folly” (1961) and “Now Hear This” (1962).
