The Dick Tracy Store 1990

While searching youtube, I came across a video which confirms the Jessica's store was originally the Dick Tracy store. The video states that this is August of 1990. This means that before Jessica's came along, the Dick Tracy store was housed in that very same building. It also means the Jessica's store was open for a shorter time. The Jessica's store was operating in 1991, as I was fortunate enough to pay a visit. It was closed in 1992 when I went back a year later. This means it could have only been open about a year and a half, not three years as I previously thought.

D23 Expo 2011

Here are some photos from the D23 Expo in California. Jessica Rabbit does have some presence there, especially since one of the featured movies with props on display is Who Framed Roger Rabbit. There was a Jessica Rabbit fine are painting hanging in the halls of the Expo. This is a very art deco piece, with Jessica sitting on what appears to be Benny the Cab upon closer inspection. This painting has never been seen before, and its use of vibrant colors and artistic edges make this a stunning Jessica Rabbit piece. Thanks to Andoni for this photo.

Jessica Rabbit Premium Format Exclusive

The Jessica Rabbit Premium Format just made its official debut on the Sideshow Collectibles website just mere minutes ago and there is already a swarm of backlash over the Exclusive version being offered. People were hoping for some sort of additional piece to be added on or to go alongside with the Jessica Rabbit Premium Format figure, however the Exclusive piece has been revealed to be an art print of the statue itself, with Jessica's autograph and kiss.

Jessipedia - Angel Jones

Part of a new section to will be the Jessipedia page. Here, you will find many other characters who either borrowed from or inspired Jessica Rabbit's creation. First, we have:

Angel Jones from Fish Police

Angel is from the very short lived 1992 Hanna-Barbera cartoon Fish Police. The tv show was loosly based on a comic book that came out in the 80's - but the show didn't strike a note with many. The TV version of Angel was an exact copy of Jessica Rabbit. She even says to Fish City's Inspector Gil in the first episode, "I'm not bad, I just Smell that way." (Which was originally reedited as, "I'm not bad, I'm good. Very good!" when it was shown on CBS.) Angel worked as a singer in a nightclub called The Shell Shack and is suspected of murdering crime boss Clams Casino. JoBeth Williams supplied Angel's speaking and singing voice.

Ink and Paint Club Preproduction Photo

Here is an Extra Special Exclusive photo behind the scenes at the Ink and Paint Club during Jessica Rabbit's performance. Until now, we have not seen any photos of Jessica's "stand-in" for this scene. Her human stand-in, for at least one scene, was actress Betsy Brantley. I'm not sure if the woman we see here is Betsy, but it gives you some idea just how much we still have not seen when it comes to the creation of Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
