Charles Martin "Chuck" Jones (September 21, 1912 – February 22, 2002) was an American animator, director, cartoon artist, screenwriter, and producer. Until his death in 2002, he created several Looney Tunes characters, including, Sniffles, Pepé Le Pew, Penelope Pussycat, Marvin the Martian, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner, and Hubie and Bertie, amongst many others. He also changed Daffy Duck from a zany to a narcissistic anti-hero.

On July 19, 2014, the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City opened the exhibit, What's Up, Doc? The Animation Art of Chuck Jones, which features some of Jones's artwork over his career. [1]

Jones has his own website he made in 2000.[2]
