Germain Adolph "Gerry" Chiniquy (pronounced "CHIN-nick-ee") (June 23, 1912—November 22, 1989) was an Americananimator. He is best known for his work with Friz Freleng, at both Warner Bros. and DePatie-Freleng Enterprises. 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 (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
