I was watching Tom And Jerry yesterday with my daughter for two hours and in every episode I saw Chuck Jones at the end of the episode and I got intrigued by the person and Google him extensively and then I came up with these Golden Rules from Chuck Jones himself. He was the father of modern of animation and what he achieved in the olden days it’s simply marvelous. You should Google him too, You will appreciate him, his works and modern animation more.
