Jones Fandom

My latest "media to watch while stretching" has been old Warner Brothers cartoons. I'm watching via the Looney Tunes Golden Collections, which are in essentially random order. And I've made a fascinating discovery. I used to think I was a Chuck Jones fan. Seeing lots of cartoons from various eras in quick succession, I find that I am *actually* a fan of "Charles M. Jones". The vast majority of his classic work was done under that name. Once he was popular enough to get billing as "Chuck Jones", his work became much more self-indulgent, and not as good. Sort of similar to prose authors who get "too big to edit", maybe?
