Roger and Jessica Rabbit are one of the most unique cartoon couples in history - with Jessica being a tall, curvaceous bombshell and Roger being a floppy-eared rabbit. Though their time together on-screen was short, the movie was still a hit with its smooth combination of live-action and cartoon characters. This Movie Moment Monday is simply - the end, all of it. Roger and Jessica finally together in one frame! We get the more iconic imagery of the film by the end, with Roger and Jessica tied together in the Acme Factory awaiting their fate. The movie isn't where it all really began. Roger and Jessica had a fairly different relationship prior to Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and their origins go back to the early 80's from the book Who Censored Roger Rabbit? by author Gary K. Wolf. So, in order to have had their small movie moment together, we do have to refer to the book.

In 2002, the Medicom Toy company created very movie accurate Vinyl Collectible Figures of Roger Rabbit and Benny the Cab. Medicom had been releasing various Disney characters in the previous years, and all of them were only available in Japan. Jessica Rabbit was soon made and it was one of the first accurate statues of her. Take a look at this fantastic piece:

A new pin being released on September 19th at the 2014 Epcot International Food And Wine Festival will feature Jessica Rabbit as a chef - and it comes with her recipe for Carrot Cake! Jessica is Dressed like a chef with white had and coat. She's holding a plate of carrot cake (which will be a PVC element). There is another pin layer below her with the event logo and her quote, "I'll bake you a carrot cake." The backer card is actually a recipe card for Carrot Cake with White Chocolate Cheesecake Icing. Sounds delicious! The pin is a Limited Edition of 4000 and will sell for $14.95 each. Should this pin still be available after 30 days of release, it can be ordered through Disney Merchandise Guest Services.

Jessica's screen time with Eddie Valiant is the third Movie Moment Monday, and as you will see was also to be a little different than what ended up in the film. After the deleted Pig Head Scene, Jessica confronts Eddie - realizing how guilty she appears. Eddie doesn't trust her and suspects she is involved in framing her husband. It's in this scene that the famous line is delivered by Jessica Rabbit: "I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way."
