While 2013 was a bigger year for Jessica with the Silver Anniversary of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, 2014 still offered a lot of the sultry singer of Toontown. Let's review 2014 and all the Jessica Rabbit news:

A new Piece of Disneyland History pin series was released in January to celebrate the history of Disneyland attractions, including the Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin ride. On this pin, Jessica is holding a mallet and tied up (after making her escape from the weasels from the end scene), features a glitter filled dress - and a piece of Jessica Rabbit's purple spandex glove from the ride! While 2014 still offered less Jessica pins, they were in no short supply. "I'm not bad. I just CRUISE that way." was released on Disney Cruise Lines, a hinged 2014 Pin Trading Night, and several more were released monthly from the Disney Studio Store in Hollywood.

Artist Kengi was spotted in Downtown Disney, creating some cool Jessica Rabbit art at the Wonderground Gallery. Here you can see the artist as he draws our favorite toon in colored pencils. Vibrant red and purple are used to recreate the stunning form of Jessica.

Buy It Now

Author Gary K. Wolf has had many requests for the story of a man, a woman and a rabbit be brought out of the cloud and into our hands. Now the third Roger Rabbit novel can be yours to own in paperback, and displayed along with your other books and collection.

In case you have missed out on any of the details for this story, you can read my review of the book, or here is another little nibble at the dangling carrot:

Hard-boiled gumshoe Eddie Valiant lands a plum job as Gary Cooper's bodyguard while Coop scouts locations for his next movie—a screwball comedy titled Hi, Toon! But Eddie's dream job quickly turns into a nightmare. The film's being shot in Toontown, and Coop's co-star turns out to be none other than Roger Rabbit. Eddie's a big fan of Coop. Of Roger? Not so much. Now a sinister hoodlum is threatening to murder Coop if the movie gets made. Before long, Eddie, Coop, Roger, and the ever-glamorous Jessica Rabbit are embroiled in a mystery that could destroy Toontown. When Roger bites off more Toonish trouble than Eddie can swallow, the answer to the question Who Wacked Roger Rabbit? suddenly becomes no laughing matter.
