Friday Book Review – Chuck Jones, The Dream That Never Was

Chuck Jones – The Dream That Never Was – By Dean Mullaney, Kurtis Findlay & Lorraine Turner

From editors Dean Mullaney and Kurtis Findlay comes a retrospective on the largely unknown character of Crawford. An accident prone young boy, developed by Chuck Jones over a 27 year period to accompany his roster of popular characters such as Road Runner, Pepe Le Pew and Marvin The Martian into the world of  TV animation. Crawford would only ever meet the public in the form of a daily newspaper comic strip in 1978, lasting six months and carefully reproduced in this book from newly discovered original artwork. Also included is the welcome addition of sketches, working drawings and animation storyboards along with a short biography focusing on Chuck’s career after Termite Terrace which make this book an excellent companion piece to Chuck Amuck; Life And Times Of An Animated Cartoonist.

Recommend for all cartoonists, comics and animation fans.
