Hare In My Soup

Thanks to our fellow friend Jarrod (webmaster of I’mNotBad.com) we’ve got those amazing pictures from the cells of the ill-fated, never released short “Hare In My Soup” and let me say they look quite great!

The character designs and backgrounds look really superb and quite similar to the preceding shorts which were released before (Tummy Trouble, Rollercoaster Rabbit and Trail Mix-Up). It’s a shame the constant feud between Steven Spielberg (from Amblin) and Michael Eisner (then CEO of Disney) ruined this short, since it seemed very promising (Spielberg demanded several changes to the story until he decided to shut this project down, as a revenge for not having any Roger Rabbit short to open his own movies like Arachnophobia).

One just can wonder about what could have happened if only Spielberg approved this short feature… What a bummer.

Thanks again, Jarrod! =3
