Charles Martin "Chuck" Jones (September 21, 1912 - February 22, 2002) was an American animator, cartoon artist, screenwriter, producer, and director of animated films. When Jones was young, Jones first cartoons were following Disney's footsteps. The Dover Boys is one of the first uses of stylized animation in American film, breaking away from the more realistic animation styles influenced by the Walt Disney Studios.

During the closure of Warner Bros.' animation studio, Jones got a job in Disney, where he teamed up with Ward Kimball for a four month period of uncredited work on Sleeping Beauty.

Jones claims that Aladdin is 'the funniest feature ever made'.

Jones' former animation unit was laid off after completing the final cartoon in their pipeline, The Iceman Ducketh, and the rest of the Warner Bros. Cartoons studio was closed in early 1963. (Jones frequently claimed, including in the aforementioned autobiography, that this happened because Warner finally learned they weren't making Mickey Mouse cartoons).

He worked as a consultant on Who Framed Roger Rabbit and story boarded the piano duel sequence with Donald Duck and Daffy Duck, laying out most of Daffy's scenes, and also drawn the Singing Sword.
