Chuck Jones was a giant of the cartoon world, responsible for some of our very favorite classic characters.

Yes, he created Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner, as well as Marvin the Martian, Pepe le Pew, Michigan J. Frog, and others. As an animator, director and producer for both Warner Bros. and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, he gave us some of our favorite childhood moments. On the 100th anniversary of Jones's birth, we're looking back at some of his most wonderful work.
