And the Jessica Rabbit pins keep on coming!

As 2005 comes to a close soon - the next month brings us still more Jessica pins. The Fifties Roger and Jessica pin auction has ended at a hefty $60, but remember, this pin was actually part of a set of pins including other characters. Only 100 of these pins exist and an even lower number of 25 of them were released separate from the set.

The Jessica and Roger Cabaret is a Jumbo and glittered pin and is currently on Disney Auctions and is also limited to 100.

A Jessica Rabbit Pave Crystal pin was released this week on Jessica's dress is flowing and is adorned with several pink pave crystals. I don't think this is a Limited Edition and it's selling for a very good price.

Coming soon to Disney Auctions is a unique pin of Roger and Jessica in the cockpit of an airplane. Roger is behind the wheel and Jessica is dresses as a flight attendant with food tray in hand.

Naughty or Nice Christmas Pin - sort of

Finally, one of the pins Jessica fans have been waiting for will be released - sort of. While the pin does not say "Have You Been Naughty or Nice" it will have that famous pose of Jessica from her Christmas Ornaments. Disneyland will be offering a new holiday pin series this year and one of the "beloved" character pins available will be Jessica in a pin shaped like an ornament which says, "Seasons Greetings 2005; Love, Jessica" With a kiss on it and Jessica in her Naughty or Nice pose. There is a dangle attached that says "Disneyland Resort."

Mainstream Jessica Rabbit

Are cats and dogs living with each other yet? It looks as if the moment some of us have feared and others anticipated is close at hand.

Jessica Rabbit: Mainstream Disney character

Can it be true? Is it really happening? Will we be spending money we shouldn't on even more Jessica merchandise? I think the standing "hares" on the back of my neck point to yes.

Let's take a look at some important pieces of merchandise. The Jessica and Mickey Mouse shirt was released in World of Disney, New York. Jessica also appeared alongside Mickey's dog Pluto in a recent Halloween pin set. And last, but not least, an official Jessica Rabbit Halloween costume was released this year. Jessica is being reintroduced and recognized!

I tried to describe this possibility with a chain of similar events that happened to our beloved friend, and at the time pretty obscure, Jack Skellington. Do I even need to discuss the cash cow Tim Burton's "Nightmare" gang has become? A niche for these bizarre characters was found and one cannot deny they have become familiar Disney faces.
