With a career spanning over 300 films, Chuck Jones was the genius behind many of Bugs and Daffy’s most beloved romps—Brooklyn’s own Flatbush-accented Bugs was born on July 27, 1940 under Ebbets Field—and a staggering number of Warner Brothers’ most immortal characters, including Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner, Marvin the Martian, and Pepé Le Pew.

This series celebrates Jones' centennial with a generous selection of rapidly paced, visually ingenious Looney Tunes shorts, with three programs screening all 29 cartoons in their original 35mm format—an extremely rare treat (a Jones showcase of this breadth has not screened in New York in at least a decade). Chuck Amuck also features a handful of films that display the influence of Jones’ anarchic spirit on live-action directors.
