Jessica arrives at Hot Topic stores

Got to a Hot Topic store near you, or, and see two NEW Jessica Rabbit shirts they offer. One shirt for women is in white with Jessica on the front saying, "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way." The other is for anyone, in black with a full picture of Jessica and her name in red above - there is no question now - Jessica Rabbit is hitting the mainstream!

Jessica Rabbit 2006 Review

It's that time of year again. Christmas is right around the corner and Jessica once again filled the months with more merchandise than we could imagine. Over one hundred thirty items have been released so far, which is more than any previous year. Of course a bulk of the merchandise is pins. This year Jessica has spent lots of time at the beach, dancing, visited New York, has dressed like Minnie Mouse, a cheerleader, a Native American, a she-devil, vampires and of all things a french maid. I always knew it would be changed forever if Disney had Jessica dressed as a French maid. It's something I never thought I'd see Disney do.

What I mean by "changed" is that the day is long over for Jessica being an obscure or underused character.

Disney Auctions ceased to be in September and while Disney claims they are just taking a break, many feel the closing was due to poor quality pins and service. Toward the end people were bidding on pins only to get a letter stating the pin was not available. The most infamous being Jessica Rabbit as Marilyn Monroe, in which Disney stated the pins were lost, yet one of the pins was given out as part of a prize pin package at a Disney event.
