Wolf Flash Series
"The show introduces us to Thomas T. Wolf, a character who sees the world as his oyster, despite being cursed with trees falling on him whenever he says his middle name, 'Timber.' As much as Thomas yearns for a peaceful life of leisure, nothing is as easy as he thinks it should be. While the series is centered around Thomas, there are many other creatures that inhabit the woods in Thomas' world. Of course none so great, refined or noble as Thomas -- at least in his opinion."
Jones is noted for his work on past classic Looney Toon cartoon series and is responsible for helping to bring famous characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd and Porky Pig to life.
There's a new episode in the series that is uploaded every Monday. Besides Jones, the following people were also involved in the series:
Stephen Fossati (executive
producer, supervising director, co-writer)

the photos to rudimentary drawings amassed in a flip book -- except you
have sticky fingers that cause the images to jump around rather than flow
