Wiley E. Coyote Super Genius

On September 21, 1912, Chuck Jones was Born!

During his life he created my favorite character EVER!  Wiley E. Coyote!!  The coyote who spent his life chasing the Road Runner, and buying all the stuff from ACME!

I loved Wiley because he Never Gave Up!!  Always had a new idea, new angle, new plan.  I have spent years watching those cartoons and laughing my ass off.  I am sorry I know they were terribly violent, but they were extremely funny, with layers of humor to range from children, the village idiot to the highly educated, there was something there everybody could appreciate.  Today's cartoons are extremely lacking in my humble opinion.
(By the way the main character of my first book is named 'Wiley'.  Now you know why!)

Chuck Jones also came up with Road Runner, Marvin the Martian, Pepe le Pew, during his time as head of a unit at Warner Bros. Animation.  He worked on the development of Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig, winning several Academy Awards for his work through the years!
