Chuck, amuck

Chuck Jones and friend
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, famous for its annual bestowals of the Oscar awards, maintains ongoing informational and educational programs all year long.

There will be two tributes to animation this week.

On Thursday, August 19, there will be a panel discussion of voice talents in animation. This is part of the ongoing lecture series sponsored by the estate of Disney animator Marc Davis.

Friday, there will be a tribute to Warner Bros. animator Chuck Jones, with all nine of his Oscar-nominated shorts (three of which won) playing.

Both shows will be at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater at the Academy's headquarters at 8949 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Tickets are a bargain-basement $5 and last I looked, tickets were still available.
