The Totally unOfficial Toonography of Jessica P3

Finally, the third part of the Toonography is out! This time, ImNotBadTV talks about Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin and how it was downgraded from the original concept (it was supposed to be a 2-story attraction). There are also some tidbits of info about how Disneyland’s Toontown was originally planned (before it became Mickey’s Toontown), and about the 15th. anniversary of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, that was celebrated with not so much fanfare (yes, just like the 20th. anniversary the last year).

Thanks again to ImNotBadTV for sharing this with everyone! =3

Thanks, my angel :’) (Updated)

Update: Since I wasn’t getting any comments (maybe because the mature filter on DA), I uploaded a non-nude version of the drawing:

Roger Rabbit’s Toontown issue 1 – Part 1

Thanks to our fellow friend Alexander, we can enjoy the first issue of Roger Rabbit’s Toontown: a comic entirely based on Roger Rabbit and his friends, about their antics in Toontown. It features 3 stories: the main one based on Roger Rabbit, the second one involves Baby Herman, and the last one features Jessica Rabbit. Be warned though: this comic is as non-sensical as you can get, so you’ll laugh a lot while reading it!! =D

Right now I’m uploading the main story, which involves Roger Rabbit in a very crazy adventure involving some talking pants… And a lot of flying pizzas!

Every thumbnail is clickable, and will open in a new window:


Stay tooned for the next stories, in the following updates =3 

P.S. Thanks a lot, Alexander, for the comic scans and the cheer-up messages!!

Goodbye, Roger Rabbit :’)


Hi. Roger Rabbit. It has been a long time since I wrote a letter to you.

Sadly, this is my last letter.

More than two years and a half ago, you entered my life and enlightened it with your smile, your crazy antics, and your cheerful way of living your own life. At that time, I really needed you. I was at some hard moment in my own life, and I desperately needed a role model. Someone that inspired me to achieve better things, and helped me to improve what was wrong with me.

Now I’m a very different person, thanks to you. You’ve shown me how much a smile worth. How much can simple practical jokes and bad puns help us to keep going ahead. How much are you committed to your own goal, that’s making people laugh. At any cost. Even risking your own life. You’ve shown me how to be a little kid again.

But now, it’s time to say goodbye to you.

Your goal was accomplished on me. Now I can smile to anyone, even to people that quite don’t understand me, or criticize me. Now I know when pull out some joke for making people laugh, even for making myself laugh. Now I’m very committed to my own goal, which is the daily improvement of my abilities, for helping people around me to be happy and satisfied with my work. And, of course, having my own family and kids.

You did it quite right, Roger Rabbit, and I really thank you for all your help and all the laughs I got from you. Now, it’s time to move on to bigger things… Without you.

What I really mean is: you’re now part of my life. You’ll always live in my place, in my office, in my car… But also you’ll be living in my soul, in my mind and in my heart. You’re now part of my happiness. But I can’t rely on you every time I have some issues at work, in home or in my personal life. I can’t let you to take all the sadness out of me, without helping you in such task. You can’t keep taking all the damage I’ve done to you when I felt desperate, in anger, or just disappointed with the whole world.

I can’t rely my whole happiness to you. I need to do it on my own.

So… Thanks for all the good moments, Roger Rabbit. My sweet little bunny. Thanks also for those weird antics, and for the bad moments we’ve lived together. Everything was part of our mutual life, but right now I need to move away from you, get on my own red pants with suspenders, tie my own polka-dotted bow, and grow my own pair of floppy ears. I need to become a full fledged adult, and take the command of my own life. I can’t keep living through you, living behind your shadow, because that’s not fair to you and me. Instead I’d like to live my own quirky antics, having you as my goofy sidekick. Of course, if you want it.

Well… You know it, Roger Rabbit. This is the end of the road. The epilogue. The Grand Finale. But I really thank you from the deep of my heart for all the fun, the laughs, the smiles and, of course, the hope you gave me through those late years. Just I wanted you to know that:

I love you Roger Rabbit. I really, REALLY love you. And I’ll never forget you.

Farewell, sweet rabbit :’)


Don’t worry fellas! I’ll keep running Toontown Antics and updating this journal with the latest news about Roger Rabbit and his pals. I just needed to do this, and move ahead in my own life. After all, Roger Rabbit is already part of me, and will be forever =3

Zemeckis’ new project: Yellow Submarine remake

Robert Zemeckis and Disney are in the last agreements about a CGI, MoCap remake of the psychodelical, classic animated feature inspired in some of the most remarkable Beatles’ songs from the late sixties. Yes, I’m talking about Yellow Submarine:

What does this means? Yes, you guessed right: forget about the Roger Rabbit sequel for a while. This kinda saddens me, but in the other hand I’m very eager to watch a contemporary rendition of one of the weirdest animated movies I’ve seen in my life.

You can read the original note on The Disney Blog:

The Disney Blog - Disney, Zemeckis rumored to remake Beatles classic

Well… Right now I have mixed feelings. We were TOO CLOSE to finally having a Roger Rabbit sequel, and right now is going away like the past times it has been rumored. Guess Beatles are way more important than a silly, crazy rabbit :’(

RR Sequel sad news: Eddie Valiant is a goner

I’ve learned today thanks to MTV Movies Blog that Eddie Valiant probably won’t appear in the planned Roger Rabbit sequel, as Bob Hoskins feels he’s very old to reprise his role as the hard-boiled, but lovable detective:

The thing is, you act with cartoons, you got to be able to bounce off the walls like a cartoon. So I’m too old. I’m too old now.

I think he could do a sequel. He wouldn’t be able to do it with me. I’m too old!

EXCLUSIVE: Bob Hoskins Says He Won't Play Eddie Valiant In Another 'Roger Rabbit'

I wonder how will work that sequel without one of the main characters, the one that should get most of the credit for making the movie plot work and flow like water. Bob Hoskins surely will get a role in the upcoming movie (if it’s ever filmed), but which kind of role will he play?

Stay tooned for more news about this upcoming feature!!

P-p-p-p-please Charles, tell me you’re serious!

Guess we’re closer to having a Roger Rabbit feature than we thought:

Jewish Journal | Voice of ‘Roger Rabbit’ talks sequel

That’s right: Charles Fleischer, THE Charles Fleischer, the weird but lovable guy that gave Roger Rabbit his trademark stuttering voice, is also talking about a possible Roger Rabbit upcoming feature. In fact, he seems to be willing to reprise his role as the zany, hyperactive Honey Bunny.

Even Fleischer has his own very guesses about what would happen to Roger Rabbit:

“I would like to see Roger suddenly become three-dimensional and the rest of the world turn two-dimensional. If that’s in the film, that was my idea.”

Of course, nothing has been written down yet and Charles is just speculating a little, but at least to me that idea sounds pretty wacky and funny, maybe worthy for an animated short =3

Remember fellas: the hopes are not dead yet!

The Totally unOfficial Toonography of Jessica P2

ImNotBadTV surprises us again with the follow-up of his unOfficial Toonography involving Jessica Rabbit and, at some extent, some of the characters, merchandising and legacy of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. This time we’ll learn about Jessica’s signature store (in which only were sold Jessica related items), and we can get a chance to see some of the original drawings for the merchandising that was sold on there (even some rare and unproduced items, that never saw the light of day). He had even the chance of having an interview with artist Mark Marderosian, who was the creator of the iconic Jessica Rabbit neon sign on Pleasure Island.

Thanks again, ImNotBadTV! You can check his own blog on:
