Of course, there will be cartoons, many of them from Jones' personal 35mm collection. Chuck Jones, whose credits include four Academy Award-winning short films, directed over 300 films in his lifetime, with such memorable titles as 'Rabbit Seasoning?,' 'Robin Hood Daffy' and 'Feed the Kitty.' In 1992 his 'What's Opera, Doc?' was the first short animated film to be inducted into the Library of Congress National Film Registry; subsequently two others have been added: 'One Froggy Evening' and 'Duck Amuck.' Jones, an honorary lifetime member of the Director's Guild, is considered to be one of the pioneers of the animated film, feted and honored at dozens of International Film Festivals from Annecy to Zagreb. In 1985 Jones was the subject of a film retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. In 1999, Jones founded the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, a non-profit public charity whose vision is to inspire the innate creative genius within each person that leads to a more joyous, passionate and harmonious life and world.
