Just about everyone recognizes that music. It means for the next few minutes, you’re going to be entertained by longtime favorites Like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, or the Roadrunner. Helping create all of those iconic characters, and many more, was it brilliant animator Chuck Jones.

Starting in 1933, Jones and his colleagues at Warner Brothers came up with hundreds of cartoons, including some of the classics everyone remembers.

In 1989, Chuck Jones finally wrote his memoir, a heavily illustrated book called Chuck Amick. And that’s when I had the chance to meet him.

So here now, from 1989, Chuck Jones.

Chuck Jones died in 2002. He was 89.
