More Roger Rabbit commercials!!

As every Roger Rabbit fan is waiting for the upcoming news about the sequel of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, there’s a lot of people talking about the rabbit and his friends right now. And naturally, things related to the original movie are starting to pop-up in several websites.

TheThiefArchive @ Youtube uploaded recently some commercials related to the movie, being one of those the McDonalds ad with the collectible cups that seems to have some original animation made specifically for it:

Neat finds, huh-huh!! =D

Roger Rabbit 2 – It’s on its way!!

I’m glad to share with you guys some news that will make us very, very, very happy. How much? Well… Let's say your eyes aren’t kidding you: the title of this entry is right!

“Who Framed Roger Rabbit”




a sequel!!


When interviewed by Empire Magazine about the upcoming projects coming from the House of Mouse, a.k.a. Disney, producer Don Hahn commented about “The Lion King” getting the 3-D treatment (which is also getting “Beauty and the Beast”) but also spilled some beans about the upcoming Roger Rabbit sequel. In the same criptic way we’re getting used to, Hahn told Empire that…

“Yeah, I couldn’t possibly comment. I deny completely, but yeah… if you’re a fan, pretty soon you’re going to be very, very, very happy.”

With all this rumors and promises from the upcoming movie, I can’t wait to be very, very, very happy!  Mr. Hahn, p-p-p-p-p-please help Disney to bring Roger Rabbit back!!

Kathleen Turner might get “drawn this way” again!


According to mexican news agency Notimex, which article (in spanish) was published in a very respected newspaper, Kathleen Turner (who’s turning 56 years old this saturday) is considering to reprise her role as Jessica Rabbit in the upcoming sequel to “Who Roger Rabbit”, which is scheduled to be released in 2012.

Although the article is mainly focused on Turner’s career, it also talks a little about the upcoming movie: Roger and his friends will return with an improved look, but they will remain 2D-animated (so there’s no need to worry about the honey bunny and his sultry wife becoming some sort of weird CGI monsters, huh-huh!).

Great news, dont’cha think so? =D

Roger’s world of rare dolls – Part 1

Around the world, Who Framed Roger Rabbit generated all kinds of merchandising: stickers, clothing, comics and magazines, stationery and party items… And of course: toys and dolls.

Today I’ll gonna show you some cute and interesting toys that were sold in a very distant country, in which Roger Rabbit still lives in Toontown and walks around when he has the chance: Japan.

* * *
 First of all, there’s this cute wind-up doll and his box (I own this one, by the way):

Then, we have a very peculiar plush doll, that has a battery-operated recorder inside him. That way, he’ll repeat everything you say to him:

And then, there’s another plush doll: this one doesn’t do anything, but at least has some companion =3

Look who’s there! Aren’t they the greatest buddies? They were sold exclusively at Tokyo Disneyland (in case you’re wondering, yes: it’s a single piece):
And the toys and collectibles keep coming and coming:

Then, we have a very special figure made by Medicom, which is the best representation of Roger Rabbit I’ve ever seen in a toy or figure:

Of course, Roger can be also an inflatable buddy (and I’m not talking about the Acme Suck-O-Lux incident):
Finally, there’s a toy that’s probably a chinese knock-off, but anyway I’m putting it here. It seems that finally Roger learned how to use a skateboard!! XD
Keep rolling, Roger!! =D
P.S. How could I forget this one? I know how much love has he gotten, since It’s owned by a very special person <3

Roger Rabbit rare postcards

Since one of your requests was about publishing more rare, one-of-a-kind pictures, items and collectibles related to Roger Rabbit, I’ll be posting some of my findings in the following days.

Let me start with this nice set of postcards made in Sweden or Norway, which feature very unique and detailed illustrations:






What do you think about them? These postcards pop up on eBay from time to time, so keep your eyes peeled: maybe you can get them all for a very affordable price =D
