A Looney Tunes Evening with Jeff Smith

Classics

Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.

Jeff Smith has described Bone as “a Bugs Bunny cartoon meets Lord of the Rings.” Join him this evening as he introduces some of his favorite Warner Bros.’ cartoons and discusses the influence their characteristic zaniness had on his own work.

The program features Chuck Jones’s celebrated “hunting trilogy”—Rabbit Fire (1951), Rabbit Seasoning (1952), and Duck! Rabbit, Duck! (1953)—all three starring Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and Daffy Duck. (app. 90 mins., 35mm).

Bring your family and young friends. This program is designed for all ages.

The exhibition Jeff Smith: Bone and Beyond, on view through August 3, features original comic book drawings by the Columbus-based artist and some of the comics artists who have inspired him. A number of Artist's Talks accompany the exhibition including Jeff Smith and Scott McCloud in Conversation, Terry Moore, and Paul Pope.

The exhibition and related events are presented in collaboration with Ohio State’s Cartoon Research Library.
