He brings a lot of stories to the show and I'm so thankful for the one regarding a Warner Brothers Store that was located in one of the Twin Towers during 9/11 that stood tall after the attacks. Come along as we explore his legacy as well as examine a true Chuck Jones classic in Frigid Hare which introduced the Playboy Penguin.
