Detective Jessica Rabbit Debuts In Toontown

The new version of Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin was unveiled on December 8th 2021. It was reported in September 2021 that Jessica would be promoted to a Private Eye and help put an end to a Toontown crimewave by The Weasels.

I was happy to do a review and comparison video - courtesy of Steve & Kai. Please check out their amazing channel for more Disney Park videos!
