He also directed scores of WB's most famous animated shorts and created Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner, Pepe Le Pew, and Marvin Martian. Much of the story is centered on the studio's "Termite Terrace, " where Chuck and his now famous fellow animators conceived and executed the cartoons that delighted kids of all ages all over the world. Per Spielberg, Chuck Jones is a comic genius, up there with Buster Keaton and Mack Sennett.
