I'm Chuck Jones, the animator who helped make Bugs Bunny an Oscar-winning rabbit by directing cartoons such as "Frigid Hare" (the first in which Bugs makes that wrong turn in Albuquerque). I died on Friday, but will live on through the iconic--and iconoclastic--characters I either created or helped bring to life: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, the Roadrunner, and many others. Long before the government made cartoons educational, I helped teach kids the sorts of subversive lessons that give all sorts of authority figures the shakes. And as long as a Looney Tune-loving kid is mocking power somewhere, I'll still be alive.
