The brand new “Chuck Jones Experience” in Las Vegas, Nevada just opened this year! I know for my next visit to Vegas, this will probably be my first stop. They recently contacted me about their opening and I asked if I could give them a feature on our website. They said yes! Here are some images and their official information.


“We officially opened January 19th, 2012 and are located inside the Circus Circus resort and casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
The experience is a 10,000 square foot attraction that holds the gallery, retail space, Center for Creativity and the actual 9-room, 8,000 square foot “Experience.”
The experience houses what can only be described as a museum about Chuck, his life, his art and his contributions to animation. We hold the largest archive of original work done by Chuck, showing over 250 sketches, cels, and paintings. Large 3D set ups allow fans to take pictures and interact with their favorite characters. At the end of the experience we have interactive exhibits on zoetropes, 3D animation, foley sounds and voice overs where patrons can make their own animations or add voices/sound to cartoons. All of the works in the experience come from Linda Jones Enterprise, Chuck’s daughter is the overseer for all the work her father did, as well as supplying the galleries with limited editions and originals to sell. As the gallery goes, the director of the experience Neil Cantor, has been collecting animation since he was a young boy, and was personal friends with Joe Barbera. The gallery has an extensive reach into the world of animation art, not just the Chuck Jones/Warner Brothers studio’s works.

General Admission for the experience is $19.95. Military, senior, students and hotel guests receive a $5 discount. Children 5-17 are $14.95, and children under 4 are free. Nevada residents (with ID) are $14.95, with NV residents aged 5-17 are $9.95.

We’re open 7 days a week from 10am – 10pm.”

Lavalle Lee has been creating animated cartoons online since 1999/2000 for his website flashcartoons.org. The cartoons on the site have gained viral video status reaching millions of viewers online. In 2009, Lavalle started learning hand drawn animation from Don Bluth in his animation classes, as well as attending his Masterclasses in Arizona. He has also personally studied animation and visual effects from Veteran Disney animators.

Lavalle is widely known in the animation industry as the creator of the TraditionalAnimation.com website. After seeing that most animation sites were about all types of animation, not any specific to classical hand drawn animation, Lavalle knew Traditional Animation needed to be represented online. TraditionalAnimation.com has become the leading website and social media account for all things 2D. The website served as inspiration for “The Traditional Animation Show” in which Lavalle was both producer and host.

His partnership with Don Bluth began when he championed the Dragon's Lair Indiegogo campaign as lead project manager, editor, and in-betweener. The campaign reached $730,000 dollars to produce a 7-minute pitch video. After ten years of learning from Don Bluth and working together on the Dragon’s Lair pitch, Lavalle accepted the position as Vice President of Don Bluth's new company Don Bluth Studios.
