    Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner Painting Original Art by Chuck Jones (Warner Brothers, c. 1980s-90s). Chuck Jones has received eight Academy Award nominations. He has won three times and was given an Honorary Academy Award as well, presented to him from Robin Williams. In Jerry Beck's book, The 50 Greatest Cartoons, Chuck Jones animated ten cartoons on this list, with What's Opera Doc taking the number one spot. He is one of the single most important people in the history of animation. This is a rare one-of-a-kind watercolor painting from Chuck's hand, featuring the ever-popular Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner. It is a brilliant painting and gag; the Road Runner is running from Wile E. has spun around and is almost upside down, with the Coyote in hot pursuit. Great "Beep Beep" graphic in the painting, with nice large images measuring 4" and 12". Fine Art watercolor paper measures 15" x 11". The painting is hand-signed by Chuck Jones (1912-2002), and has a Linda Jones COA on the back of the frame.
