Happy Birthday, Chuck Jones!

Lots of birthdays this week, including that of Chuck Jones who was born in 1912. If the name isn't familiar to you, maybe this will jog your memory (and make you smile):

Chuck Jones "directed" Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd in the film, What's Opera, Doc?. The film, released in 1957, was inducted into the Library of Congress's National Film Registry in 1992. To be eligible, a film has to be at least 10 years old and be "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Three of Jones's cartoons are now in the Registry!

Here's a happy birthday cheer to the memory of a man who made, and continues to make, a lot of people happy (and gives them earworms, too)!
