Counting Down to Chuck Jones' Centennial

We are going to be posting a Chuck Jones-directed cartoon every day from now until September 21, which would have been Chuck's 100th birthday. We are going to do this here on the blog and then also on my Facebook page. We start with Chuck's first cartoon as director, "The Night Watchman", which was typical of the slower, gentler comedies that marked Chuck's first few years as a cartoon director. Eventually, Chuck loosened up, and his films became uproariously funny.

NOTE: Warner Bros. took most of the films down. I took the posts down so the page loads faster and I look less like a schmuck than I did before.

We have moved three inactive blogs to the Hall of Fame: John Kricfalusi's Funky HB, Jessica Krajdel's Vale Vale Venga, and Paul Spector's Spectorphile. Do you think Tweeting is the new blogging?
