Rest in peace Joe Alaskey

Voiceactor Joe Alaskey has sadly passed away. Fans here might remember him for his role as Yosemite Sam in the scene where Eddie visits the Acme factory. Sam's regular voiceactor; Mel Blanc was unable to do it due to his age so Alaskey took over. He would later go on to voice more Looney Tunes characters in other films and series.
Cause of death was cancer. He was 63 years old. Thanks to Screenrant for the info.

A Toontastic birthday card!

Daniel here. In my first post, I had mentioned that I went to Disney World in 2007 and had seen the former location of Mickey's Toontown Fair in the process. What I didn't mention, however, was that I got something at a character meet and greet restaurant for my birthday! A card with Roger on it!

Of course, the card features Roger with Mickey Mouse and the EPCOT character of Figment (Who I also love a lot, and I think deserves more interest.)

This was obviously created when Roger was still the focus of Disney MGM Studios, and was still in use in 2007, so I have no idea if they still use it to this very day.

A Toontown game?!

Back in 2003, Disney opened the doors to Toontown in an online way.... a video game. Now, making a game based off of Roger Rabbit material is nothing new, and it had to be better than half the games out there (cough NES cough), but what was different was that Roger and the other characters were not used. Understandable, since Gary K. Wolf and Speilberg were not happy with Disney at the time, but I digress.

Toontown was an online game where you could create your own Toon and race gokarts, golf, earn money in the form of jellybeans and more. However, there is a bad guy in the form of the evil robot Cogs, who want to turn Toontown's happy, carefree life into a business place ( *cough Eisner cough*)

What's even stranger is that when Disney closed down, fans made their own servers. I would suggest playing on Toontown Rewritten for starters.
