In a career spanning over 60 years, Jones made more than 300 animated films, winning three Oscars as director and in 1996 an honorary Oscar for Lifetime Achievement. Among the many awards and recognitions, one of those most valued was the honorary life membership from the Directors Guild of America. During the Golden Age of animation Jones helped bring to life many of the Walt Disney / Warner Bros. Most famous charactersBugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and Porky Pig. The list of characters he created himself includes Road Runner, Wile E.
Coyote, Marvin Martian, Pepe le Pew, Michigan J. He also produced, directed and wrote the screenplays for Dr. Seuss How the Grinch Stole Christmas, a television classic, as well as the feature-length film The Phantom Tollbooth. In addition, Jones was a prolific artist whose work has been exhibited at galleries and museums worldwide.Jones often recalled a small child who, when told that Jones drew Bugs Bunny, replied: He doesnt draw Bugs Bunny. He draws pictures of Bugs Bunny. His point was that the child thought of the character as being alive and believable, which was, in Jones belief, the key to true character animation.
