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

wouldn't it be great if Roger made a comic book come back with help from a Disney artist like James Silvani (http://silvaniart.blogspot.com/)

When you said "comic book comeback" I instantly thought on Darkwing Duck, hive mind! =D

Roger's boss looks a lot like a guy from an old Looney Tunes cartoon: http://youtu.be/N1LeQyB_czw

This is the most awesome Roger Rabbit-related thing I've seen in a while! Thank you for posting this! Never knew there was actual character designs created. They look great!
BTW just discovered your blog, great stuff indeed!

Thanks for your comments, James!

I'm also amazed by those pieces of Roger Rabbit history, rarely seen nowadays. I'd like to say there will be more RR-related discoveries as more details about the upcoming sequel are revealed, but we are only hoping that happens.

You know, being a Roger Rabbit fan is hard sometimes, but we're still in the boat =3
