Irresistible Love

Several days ago I bought a vintage Roger Rabbit poster, given in an old promo of a sticker album featuring Disney characters. Today, it arrived home in perfect shape:

Luckily, I had a frame available:

No, I won’t talk about…

…that upcoming Bugs Bunny theatrical movie, in which WB tries to pull another Roger Rabbit. Yes folks: again.

I just can’t stand Bugs. He’s SO despicable.

Roger Rabbit UK Video Promo

The owner of YouTube channel TheThiefArchive uploaded recently a video featuring Charles Fleischer (voice of Roger Rabbit, Benny the Cab, Greasy and Psycho Weasels), in which he promotes the video release of Who Framed Roger Rabbit for all video rental stores in United Kingdom. Of course, this was recorded at least 21 years ago so Charles still looks like a youngster.

It’s a very great find indeed, since you can see how Charles tries to sell the movie to video stores in a very funny way, even doing silly voices and faces =D

P.S. If you’re a fan of Richard Williams’ work, I suggest you to subscribe TheThiefArchive; even you can find in that channel a very true work of love and art: a completed, true-to-origin version of “The Thief and The Cobbler”, made for fans by fans using original, recently-discovered footage. A timeless classic :)

We’re tiny, we’re toony, and Roger does a cameo!

In the last entry of this blog, my partner Alexander asked about certain Roger Rabbit cameo in an episode of Tiny Toon Adventures… I remembered watching that particular episode several years ago, so I began doing some minor research about it and finally I found that cameo!

You’re about to see a extract from the episode “Buster & Babs Go Hawaiian” (which in fact was the only episode written by fans of the show, and one of the very few fan-generated stories featured in a cartoon series), in which Roger and Jessica are featured. Unfortunately they aren’t playing full cameos: the only thing we can see are Roger’s right hand (wearing a blue glove instead of the well-known yellow one) and Jessica’s legs, but in the other hand Charles Fleischer was called to reprise Roger again:

(If you want to go directly to the cameo, click here) 

Well… That’s it. Your thoughts? =0

Joker spoofs Roger?

In addition to being a huge fan of Roger Rabbit I also love the old Batman Animated series. Recently I bought the Gotham Adventures paperback which includes several stories based on the series. Why am I telling you this? Well you see, in the first story there is a page which reminds me a lot of the hidden room scene from the movie. Could be meant as a homage or just a coincidence. Either way, I am posting the page in question. Read the three last panels of the page and decide for yourself.
And if you know about any other references or parodies of Roger Rabbit, then feel free to let us know. I remember him having a cameo of sorts in Tiny Toons once but haven't got a clue which that episode was.
