You can own the very first Roger Rabbit doll ever made! (Sort of)


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:

Lego Roger Rabbit needs your help!

I was told The Roger Rabbit Lego project was in need of some support, so I figured I could inform you all about the project and see if that helps.

Roger Rabbit board game reviewed.

Roger Rabbit's video game wasn't very impressive, but is the board game any better? Not that much according to Boingboing.net. But fans of the film might wanna check it out anyway.

More early Roger Rabbit stuff surfaces

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.

Some other character's merch

Now, we usually talk about Roger. But I had an idea. We don't really talk much about Jessica, Benny the Cab, Judge Doom or the Weasels. So I decided to post about the merchandise for the characters that don't get much talk.

For starters, let's talk about The Weasels.

Ya know, even though they died in the movie, they seem to have more merch than Judge Doom.





With other characters, however, it was harder. Baby Herman for one. Maybe it's the thing with a young looking character that swore and smoked cigars wasn't good for kids to have stuff with. But, he did eventually get a bean bag plush.






But Judge Doom only got 2 things (to my knowledge.) A pin, and an action figure. Not counting the Funko figure, since it's not out yet (I don't think)









Of course, Benny got a ton. He seemed to be the only one besides Roger and Jessica to be liked a lot. Especially with the fact that they could easily make him.






Of course, I won't be talking about Jessica. There's a whole blog for that at one of our friends, I'm not badTV.

The rise and fall of Roger Rabbit.

If you want to read more about why Roger never got a second film, then I got another site for you. Jim Hill Media has written a interesting article on the troubled production of the film, and the even more troubled productions on the spinoff cartoons and sequel atempts.
This came to my attention thanks to the comments on The Dissolve article from
