Born in 1912 in Spokane, Washington, Jones moved to Hollywood with his family. After graduating from Chouinard Art Institute (now the California Institute of Arts), he began making a living drawing pencil portraits on Olvera Street, a historic Los Angeles marketplace. He landed his first job washing animation cels in 1932, working for legendary Disney animator Ub Iwerks.
He became an animator for Warner Brothers (1933 — 1962), where he helped bring to life some of the studio’s most recognizablc characters. In addition to Bugs and Daffy, he worked on the fast-moving, beep-beeping Road Runner and his hapless pursuer, Wile E.Coyote. He also drew Pepele Pew, the romantic-minded skunk with a French accent.
1933年至1962年，他在华纳兄弟影业公司从事动画片制作；在那里他帮助公司把一些最受观众认可的卡通人物变得生动活泼起来。除了兔八哥和达菲鸭外，他还塑造了行动迅速的哔哔鸟和它那倒霉的追逐者荒野狼，以及说话带法语口音、思想怪诞的臭融Pepele Pew 的形象。
Jones opened his own company, Chuck Jones Enterprises, in 1962, directing such animated features as The Phantom Tollbooth and specials for television.
The animator’s work won him admirers throughout the entertainment business.“Chuck Jones’originality, his humor and his pacing still have no peer today, ” director Steven Spielberg once said.
