What's Up, Doc? The Animation Art of Chuck Jones is a new traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian Institution that reveals the creative genius behind some of the most enduringly popular cartoons and animated films of all time. Chuck Jones brought to animation an unparalleled talent for comic invention and a flair for creating animated characters with distinctive and often wildly eccentric personalities. Jones perfected the quintessentially suave and wisecracking Bugs Bunny, the perpetually exasperated Daffy Duck, the hapless but optimistic Elmer Fudd, and created the incurably romantic Pep_ Le Pew and the eternal antagonists Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. What's Up, Doc?, opening April 30, 2016, examines Jones' development as a filmmaker and visual artist and showcases many of his most significant films, which come to life through original sketches, animation cels, scripts, and on-screens. The exhibit is a partnership between the Smithsonian Institution, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, and the Museum of the Moving Image. Communication to the public about this exhibit will make use of the popular animated characters in print, broadcast, social media, and media relations strategies.
