The Totally unOfficial Toonography of Jessica

Jessica Rabbit is becoming a much more popular character to the Disney family. In an effort to preserve the character, this six part documentary slideshow will reveal some information about Jessica, her creation, merchandise and history.

Part One: The Beginning and A "Tail" of Triumph and Tragedy. How it all began and why Jessica and co. disappeared so soon after their big debut.

Part Two: Jessica's - Signature Store of a Toon Diva - If you never had the chance to visit the Jessica's store during the very short time it was open, this presentation takes a look back into its history. See what merchandise was available at the Jessica's store, original drawings of rare unproduced items, and insight from the creator of the neon Jessica sign himself, Mark Marderosian.

Part Three: The TOON Rides Again - Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin - Even though Roger and Jessica had been disappearing, we were lucky enough to get this fantastic ride. Originally to be a two-story ride, Car Toon Spin opened in Disneyland's Toontown and is still a very popular attraction. Only a sporadic amount of merchandise was available throughout the years until the 15th Anniversary of the film. Bonus: OUTTAKES - I mess up now and then.

Part Four: The Ultimate "Pin-up," (Jessica proves popular among pin collectors around the 15th Anniversary of the film) The Nurses Association Vs. Jessica Rabbit (A certain Jessica pin however is NOT very popular among The Nurses Association and is pulled from sale) and This Item Is Not Available - Disney Pin Collecting (Different types of pins, some Jessica pins from Disney Auctions end up missing, and other strange happenings).

Part Five : Girl Power - A look at Jessica's creation, her impact on female characters and figure collecting, and the many others who had a hand in making the industry what it is today.

Part Six: Relaxed, Refreshed, Reanimated - New Jessica Merchandise, The Future and Conclusion.
