Chuck Jones Next March

I will, of course, remind everyone about this later, but Turner Classic Movies has an entire evening devoted to Chuck Jones next March 24. Included is the new documentary Chuck Jones: Memories of Childhood. You can read more about that documentary over at Cartoon Brew. In addition, they will show The Phantom Tollbooth, the feature that Jones directed based on the book by Norton Juster. Here's the schedule for Eastern time. Note that the last film of the night is 1001 Arabian Nights, the UPA feature starring Mr. Magoo and directed by Jack Kinney.

The most perfect lineup TMC has ever scheduled (coming from a VERY biased Chuck Jones fan).

I find it interesting that TCM is showing, among the cartoons, all three of Chuck Jones's Library of Congress inductees: "What's Opera Doc", "Duck Amuck" and "One Froggy Evening".

One Froggy Evening came out in 1955not 1966,and What's Opera Doc came out in 1957 not 1954.

You're right, but I just cut and pasted the schedule. The errors are from Turner Classic movies.
