Flashback Friday - Jessica Rabbit Mattel Doll Designer Interview

When it comes to Jessica Rabbit dolls, there are very few to go around. Actually, there are only two so far ever created. The most recent is by Robert Tonner which was released in 2010. The first doll was released back in 1999 by Barbie's company Mattel. Back then, a photo was released of the Jessica Rabbit doll by Mattel, and as expect looked amazing! Then, not too long after, an updated photo replaced the first one and showed that the doll had been changed significantly. Why this happened was a big mystery until I contacted the designer of the Jessica Mattel doll herself. This exclusive interview with Jessica Rabbit Mattel Doll designer, Lisa Temming, uncovers the real reason the doll was changed, what other plans were supposed to be in store for the doll, the strong opinions Disney and Amblin had about Jessica, and the line of Jessica dolls that never happened. If you haven't read this interview yet, you can see never before seen photos of the original prototype and a special version she created: - A Jessica Rabbit Site: Exclusive Jessica Rabbit Artist Interview - Lisa Temming
