Who Framed Roger Rabbit Celebrates 28 Years

Who Framed Roger Rabbit hops into another year, celebrating its 28th Anniversary in 2016. The movie is a cartoon-noir film which starred a human actor (Bob Hoskins as Eddie Valiant) - and an actual cartoon rabbit. The animation by Disney under the lead of Richard Williams still looks beautiful today. The special effects by Industrial Light and Magic were advanced technical achievements for the time. The acting by the human cast and the voice actors alike was superb. Take a look back at all the special Anniversary happenings and merchandise over the last several years, as we go full steam ahead closer and closer to the big 3-0!

Pin Release - I'm Not Bad. I'm Just Drawn That Way

There's been a new Jessica Rabbit pin released in Disney Parks this month. There haven't been many Jessica pins lately, but this pis happens to be a great one. Jessica is sitting with her arms behind her head, with a banner around her which has her famous quote from Who Framed Roger Rabbit, "I'm Not Bad. I'm Just Drawn That Way." Jessica's dress is glitter filled, and she is sitting next to a pencil and paintbrush (which has some glitter paint on the end). Part of the banner is the bottom layer of the pin, while Jessica is a top layer. As far as I know this is an open edition pin which has turned up in Disneyland and sells for $12.99 each. Thanks to José for helping me track it down and for the photo below.
