If you've been around for a while, maybe you remember a particular post about the origins of the rabbit plush portraying Roger Rabbit in the original cover of "Who Censored Roger Rabbit" (the one with Gary K. Wolf portraying Eddie Valiant), which was commissioned by Gary Wolf himself to a japanese company named Kamar.
It seems that, luckily for us, that rabbit wasn't the only one made from those patterns.
If you go to this eBay link, you can find a facsimile of the first Roger Rabbit plush ever made from the same company that made the original one. It's logical to think Kamar got some extra mileage from these original patterns and sold the rabbit in mass quantities, so why don't you give it a look? Maybe you can give him a new home and get some part of Roger Rabbit's history ;)
Again, the link:

The Thief Archive has posted a new video that features footage of early animation tests and concept art of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. This new old stuff comes from a old episode of a Disney Channel show called Disney Studio Showcase. The host takes us backstage of the production and shows us a lot of interesting things that got dropped later on. Among other things, this early version features a evil Jessica and a grumpy toon detective named Lt Cleaver.
