You can appreciate his willingness to cheerfully and competently bring believabilityy and humor to roles that at the outset would seem to be puerile at best. He is, in short, a first-rate actor in supporting roles.
The Road Runner did not change a lot visually over the years; he has very little personality, as he is a force. Chuck Jones told students that the secret of drawing the Road Runner is learning how to draw dust:
In the book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Dr. Seuss had already carefully determined who the Grinch was (or is). The job of the animators was to find out how to match in movement the believability of that character.
Marvin is one of those mysterious creatures that come out of the sky or up the stairs late at night. You don’t know what he thinks, and you don’t want to know. It is not simple happenchance that he appears to have no character. He is a Martian, and you cannot expect to find much personality in there.
If you can’t do it yourself–animate somebody who can–Pepe le Pew, for example.Pepe’s sexual confidence is absolute. He sees rejection as no more than a temporary setback, and every pursuit as an intereesting variation on the road to inevitable success.
Without the Acme Co., where would Wile E. Coyote be? And, for that matter, where would the Acme Co. be without Wile E. Coyote? It is what is called in some quarters, “a perfect symbiotic relationship,” which Noah Webster defines as: “A couple of different living things living together in close association for mutual benefit.”
Chuck Jones’s Sylvester looks the same as the Sylvester directed by Friz Freleng, but there the resemblance ends. Jones’s Sylvester doesn’t speak in his cartoons with the exception of “The Scarlet Pumpernickel”. He appeared with Porky Pig as his pet who sees the danger they’re in while Porky does not.
This orange, lump-headed monster made his first appearance in Hare-Raising Hare, 1946. His one memorable line, was when it was pointed out to him that they were being watched by an audience, he cried out “PEOPLE” and ran out of the frame.
He is so unquestionably a dog. Charlie is merely trying to find a master and a home, which are perfectly natural ambitions for any dog. Comedy is always concerned wtih simple matters such as this.
Claude Cat is all cats, and not. He’s persnickety, co-dependent, and independent. He’s easily bamboozled and easily frightened. The slightest variation in his day causes him no end of grief.
According to Chuck Jones, theh Three Bears were fun characters to work withbut hard characters to draw, because their form reflected thie character in a way that Bugs’s or Daffy’s form didn’t.
If you’re going to produce an animated cartoon about a frog who will exercise his glorious tonsils in glorious song, from “Michigan Rag” to “Figaro,” but only in the solitary presence of his owner, while persistently appearing to the rest of the world as an ordinary slop-legged, run-of-the-pond, standard frog whose sole oral accomplishment is “ribbit”–how do you get started on this impossible dream?
Audiences responded to Ralph–recognizing his desire to do something dramatic to impress his teacher–and to Maurice Noble’s designs, which reinforce the films’ realistic but dreamlike quality. Ralph took his character from Chuck Jones who had no trouble writing dialogue or creating drawings for the Ralph Phillips cartoons, as Ralph is Chuck Jones as a child.
