Roger Rabbit back in 1983 –Yes, 1983!!


Yup. They are Eddie Valiant and Roger Rabbit.

As you probably know, “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” was canned for a while since Disney bought the rights to Gary Wolf’s novel “Who Censored Roger Rabbit?” and the Mouse House’s executives were trying to pull a movie out of that bizarre yet funny novel, until they gave up because they didn’t have the budget for a project like this one.

Well… 2719 Hyperion bring us this pic from the 1983 Disney’s Annual Report, in which a Roger Rabbit movie is mentioned as being near to its theatrical release (little did they know that the movie would be actually premiered in 1988, with a very different look and feel). This photograph shows Mike Gabriel (a Disney animator, storyboard artist and character designer) dressed as Eddie Valiant, along with Roger Rabbit in his first incarnation, mainly inspired in Tex Avery’s cartoons as the design suggests.

You can read more about this in 2719 Hyperion’s entry about Roger Rabbit, 1983-style =3

Roger Rabbit in Mickey’s 60th. Birthday Special

Yes. I know what are you thinking: he looks cheaply animated.

And you’re right.

This is a excerpt from that Mickey Mouse’s 60th. Anniversary Special that was aired on TV more than 20 years ago. And it gives you an idea of how Roger would look in a regular cartoon show. Try to place this poorly animated sequence in some Bonkers’ episode, and you’ll get the whole picture.

Now I’m thankful we didn’t get a Roger Rabbit SatAM cartoon.

BTW, I’ll give you some kudos if you guess who’s the staff person chatting with Roger… But I’m sure you already know who’s him ;)

P.S. This video was uploaded by Youtube user froggycompany.

Roger’s getting ready for Valentine’s Day

I was thinking about something special for today, Valentine’s Day… And then, I stumbled upon this blog entry:


As you can see, Roger is ready for celebrate Valentine’s day with Jessica Rabbit. Doesn’t he look like a sweet little gentleman wearing that tuxedo? Sure Jessica will get a nice surprise from him, hehe!

You can get more details about this cute picture visiting Tokyomagic’s Meet the World blog. You can also find a very special 101 Dalmatians’ postcard.

Happy Valentine’s Day! <3

Who Framed Roger Rabbit Laserdisc

laserdisc1laserdisc2 Jeepers! That’s a huge disc!! =D

Got it today from a local seller, and seems to be in great shape despite being at least 20 years old. Although I don’t own a Laserdisc player, this is still a nice collectible item =3

Until we win

I came across this at the Nostalgia Critic website and figured I'd share it with you. I never had the displeasure of playing this game myself, but it seems to be a pretty frustrating and difficult thing judging from this video.

Ever heard of the healing power of laughter?

One of our visitors, Ayaka, drew this fabulous picture last Halloween of our favorite wabbit as Gotham City's famous evil clown. During a conversation with her I asked for the permission to post it here and she accepted. So enjoy!
