Germain Adolph "Gerry" Chiniquy (pronounced "SHIN-a-key") (June 23,
1912 – November 22, 1989) was an American animator. He is best known
for his work with Friz Freleng, at both
Warner Bros. and
Chiniquy joined Freleng's animation team in the early 1940s. His work
can best be seen in the many "dance numbers" that Freleng liked to use
in his shorts. As crewmembers working on Golden Age Warner Brothers's
cartoons were seldom credited, Chiniquy and the other animators would
often add their names into the backgrounds of cartoons. Chiniquy's
name can be seen in
Bugs Bunny Rides Again
Bugs Bunny Rides Again (1948); look for "G.
Chiniquy, Blacksmith" painted on a rooftop. Chiniquy also made a cameo
appearance in the live action portion of You Ought to Be in Pictures
(1940), as the director calling for "Quiet on the set!" Names of
several Depatie-Freleng workers appear in The Barkleys' (NBC, 1972)
episode "Lib and Let Lib", as bus passengers complimenting Agnes
Barkley on her bus driving.
After Chiniquy followed Freleng to DFE, he was promoted to director.
Chiniquy directed many of the theatrical Pink Panther and The Ant and
the Aardvark shorts.
