You'll Be Missed, Doc

I was reading the news today and saw that animator Chuck Jones has died at age 89. This is so sad. Like most kids, I grew up on a steady diet of his cartoons and some of my fondest memories are of his work. I loved "What's Opera, Doc?" and remember watching it through my Viewfinder. One of my absolute cartoons featured Marc Anthony & Kitty (the bulldog and black and white kitten). The bulldog thought the little kitty had ended up cooked in a batch of cookies and when the mom in the picture made him a cookie shaped like a cat he just cried and carried it around everywhere. It was just priceless. My dad used to sing the songs from "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi" to my brother and I and whenever we saw snakes (we lived on an acre in a wooded area of Texas), would call them Nog or Noganina. Going though his official website, it's amazing how many incredible characters he created. What an amazingly talented man. He will be missed by children and adults everywhere.

My favorites were the ones with Marvin the Martian. I always thought that if there was intelligent life elsewhere, it ought to wear a gladiator-style helmet and sneakers.
