    One Reply to “Chuck Reducks: Drawing from the Fun Side of Life”

    1. While Chuck Reducks won't be quite as fresh for those who have read Chuck Amuck, it is still a joy to read and step into Chuck Jones's thought and company for a while. He further examines his own life, theory of character writing, and discusses works he barely touched on in Chuck Amuck, such as How the Grinch Stole Christmas!.

    2. Not QUITE as good as the previous volume, but then that is one of my favourite books. Less auto-biographical stuff, more little bits about different characters and films, which were nice, but I want to hear more about working for Warner Bros in the 30s/40s/50s, y'know? Chuck is such a good writer, and this is still an excellent, excellent book, but it felt like more of an Odds and Ends job, collecting all the scraps that weren't used in the first book. I still love hearing about his Uncle Lynn, [...]

    3. I rather enjoyed this book, which was part memoir and part insight into Chuck Jones' approach to animation, and many Looney Tunes and other characters specifically. I enjoyed the humor and voice he was able to impart, which made the animation details just as much of a story and entertaining as the anecdotes he presented.While it isn't as technical as other books on animation, or as detailed as other animation history books, I think this would be a good book to at least read through once for Jone [...]

    4. The autobiography of the animator and director who gave us such classic characters as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd [enpedia/wiki/Chuck_Jones]. Well written, very funny and with plenty of insight into the creation of these animated films. Mr. Jones' work is easily available in YouTube and is still the basis of periodic films by the Warner Corporation. But the new creations don't have the spark of those great works from the sixties and seventies. We certainly miss you, Chuck Jones.

    5. I adore this book! Part autobiography, part history of Warner Bros and part learning tool on the creative process. Chuck Jones delivers insightful behind-the-scenes tour of the to-the-left-of-cute studio. My favorite parts were of course his explanation of the creative process and the fact he would redraw one scene 50 times just to get it right. He delves into the personality of beloved characters that, as time has gone on, become icons of animated cinema -- Michigan J. Frog, Marc Anthony, Bugs [...]

    6. A companion piece to Chuck Amuck that dives a little more deeply into the early years, life at Termite Terrace, and being an Oscar-winning animator. Interesting close character studies of his most famous characters, and those to whom he gave his personal slant, including Bugs and Daffy.

    7. Really fun read. I thought Chuck Jones wrote well. Strangely, I found the first part of the book, the more autobiographical section, more interesting. Once he gets into how the famous Loony Tunes characters were designed and created, it drops off a bit.

    8. Wow. Even better than Chuck Amuck! Much more substantial. In addition to more life stories, Jones details every major character and several specific films. Excellent.
