Loretta Rabbit

Some time ago, when I rediscovered my love for Roger Rabbit, I decided to give him a little daughter.

Many of you will ask: “how are supposed Roger and Jessica to have kids, if he’s a toon rabbit and she’s a toon human?” Well… The answer is quite easy: their daughter was delivered by a drunk stork that almost crashed into the Rabbits’ house (like in those old “Merry Melodies” cartoons).

Her name is Loretta. Loretta Rabbit. I went for that name since it was very popular among girls in the 40’s and 50’s, and because it seemed cute to me. As you can see, she’s a little girl that bears a very strong resemblance with her dad, but has some of Jessica’s key visual features like the huge eyelashes and eyelids, and of course the same gorgeous hairdo.

Like his father, she will do anything for making you laugh. But unlike Roger, she’s a very street-smart girl that can’t be easily fooled by the average tricks and scams. Like Jessica, Loretta knows she’s cute and takes care of her appeareance. Unlike her mom, she’s more sweet and tender --and even dislikes all those diva poses and attitudes. Unlike both of them, she’s really afraid of ghosts, ghouls and zombies. But in the other side, Loretta is very loyal to her friends and relatives.

About her age, she must be around 8-9 years old, and she seems to enjoy her childhood… Although sometimes, she doesn’t want to grow up. Loretta simply cannot understand big girls’ stuff yet. Because that, she’s always wearing cute dresses and frilly clothing that makes her look even more sweet and innocent. I remember giving her a pair of maryjane shoes in one of the early sketches (along with frilly socks), but then I discarded them since Roger goes always barefoot and he seems to be very comfortable with that. Supposed Loretta would find that comfy as well.

So… She’s Loretta. Still I don’t know if I’ll give the Rabbits another kid, but meanwhile they sure have a lot of time to share with their little daughter =3

Note: Loretta Rabbit is a fan-created character, so she’s not canonical. But if you want to use her for some fanfic or some RP story, p-p-p-p-please contact me first =D

P.S. I almost forgot! Here’s Alexander rendition of Loretta Rabbit:

Awesome, isn’t it? =D
