Does anyone know if Chuck Jones is credited w/ inventing any illusions other than the Mis-Made Girl? It's the only one I've seen his name on, but it's such a creative illusion that it seems like he would have come out with more. Just wondering.

Thanks,
Will

Chuck Jones' actual origination of the Mismade is open to discussion. Let's say that he stood on the shoulders of many giants on that one.

"The Motley Man" is one of the first.

His daughter has created some really impressive ones, though.

Thanks, Bill. I hadn't read about or considered any dispute of origination on Mis-Made. "The Motley Man" is a new one for me, too. Cool. A new illusion to learn about.

Lou Lancaster had some interesting information on this. I think it would be fair to say that Chuck developed the Mismade, rather than inventing it. There are some features in the Mismade that do not appear in The Motley Man. But the basic underlying features came from there, without a doubt. If memory serves, the Motley Man was Louis Histed's invention.

In a way, it's like P.T. Selbit and the sawing. If it had not been for "The Radium Girl," Selbit would never have done the Sawing.

Tad Ware had some interesting info on this in the latest issue of Magicol.

Yes, Chuck has invented several illusions. He has been performing and touring New Zealand and Australia for the past 15 years (maybe longer) for several months a year. He has advertised one of his original illuions in one of the magic magazines out there. (Might have been IBM?) Not 100% sure of the name of the illusion but I did see it within the last year advertised. I remember seeing it several times and it was a great illusion and always got a good reaction from the crowds.
