Looney Works


In 1940's "You Ought to Be in Pictures", Chiniquy played the Movie Director, whom Porky Pig upset after he sneezed on a movie set.


At Warner Brothers, Chiniquy directed two cartoons in 1964, "Dumb Patrol" and "Hawaiian Aye Aye". He also co-directed "The Yolks on You" and "Daffy Flies North", both cut from Daffy Duck's Easter Egg-citement. The rest of his directing credits were outside of the traditional Looney Tunes spectrum, at DePatie-Freleng studios, directing a lot of Pink Panther, The Inspector, and The Ant and the Aardvark shorts.

Chiniquy's first cartoon he animated at Warner Brothers was 1940's "Little Blabbermouse" for Friz Freleng's unit. His first on-screen credit was for Freleng's 1942 cartoon "Porky's Pastry Pirates". He animated Bugs Bunny's scenes in Two Guys from Texas and My Dream Is Yours, as well as the 1963 TV pilot "Philbert". The only major animation unit Chiniquy worked on at Warner was Freleng's, but he did animate on Hawley Pratt's 1964 cartoon "Señorella and the Glass Huarache". He also animated a lot of 1970s/1980s Looney Tunes TV specials/movies.
