Chuck Jones' very take on Donald Duck

Did I say one last Jones thing? Actually, there's a second one-last-Jones-thing: Chuck Jones was a story consultant to support the pre-production of 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' (1988). He did some story work for the famous ‘Dueling Pianos’ segment which led to these extraordinary sketches of Donald Duck.

Apropos, there was an interview in the Washington Post, back in 1989, 'CHUCK JONES AND THE DAFFY WORLD OF CARTOONS', where his contribution to Roger Rabbit was discussed, amongst other things.

Part of this was BTW this hilarious statement:

[...] "I [Chuck Jones] was supposed to be in on it too, at the beginning, and Dick [Richard Williams] and I started out with a storyboard and a lot of material with Donald and Daffy Duck playing dual pianos. I thought that was a very funny idea, and an historic idea, but they ended up with something horrible. No, I didn't like it. "All that money wasted on that." Jones says he's heard that about half of the $50 million budget for "Roger Rabbit" was spent on the animation. "And I figured out that that was about twice as much money as it cost to make all of the Warner cartoons. All of them!" [...]

Please find the entire interview right here ➚
