Jessica Rabbit Merchandise Review #21 - Markrita Statue

After the turn of the Millennium, things were about to change drastically for Jessica Rabbit. However, there had only been a few things available up to that point. Markrita statues became a hot new collectible, but for some reason, this didn't last very long. Husband and wife team Mark and Rita Dornan were making such statues based on movies like Nightmare Before Christmas, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. In 2001 they finally released a Who Framed Roger Rabbit Markrita Statue.

They were all limited editions, but they were not numbered although each one did come with a Certificate Of Authenticity. They were made exclusively for the Art of Disney Gallery stores found only on Disney park property and came in a special box with the store logo.

Katy Perry as Jessica Rabbit for the VH1 Divas Salute The Troops Event

Singer Katy Perry got the audience wanting to play patty cake at the USO's VH1 Divas Salute The Troops event on Sunday night. Katy donned several skimpy outfits, but one is being nicknamed around the web as her "Jessica Rabbit dress." Katy Perry performed her hit song Firework, in which she wore the Jessica Rabbit style red sequin dress and long gloves. She made a few costume changes throughout the show, but it seems to be the Jessica Rabbit dress which Katy wore that is making headlines.

Jessica Rabbit Merchandise Review #16 - Christmas Mistletoe Hat

After Jessica Rabbit became the hot Disney Pin character collectible, a few more things were released - like new Jessica Christmas Ornaments, shirts, statues and something very interesting - a Jessica Rabbit Christmas Mistletoe Hat. This is one of those items that came out of left field. We've never seen anything like it before and probably won't again. It was available in Disney's Days of Christmas around 2003-2004. When I called to order it, the woman insisted it was not a Jessica Rabbit hat - and I insisted that it was. She went to go check, and when she found it she apologized since she didn't even know Jessica was on something like that. The whole thing sort of looks like Jessica Rabbit mixed with Dr. Seuss.
