Less a documentary than a glowing tribute, Chuck Jones: Extremes and In-Betweens, a profile of the dean of cartoon auteurs comes stuffed with laudatory sound bites from people like Steven Spielberg and Robin Williams. But there’s also plenty of valuable insight into what makes Jones’ animated art so special, backed up by copious clips from 60 years of ‘toons. To watch Bugs, Daffy, and Road Runner at their impudent best is to join in the Jones celebration. B
