30 Years Of Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Today marks 30 long years since the debut of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, a cherished movie that successfully blends live action with animation. As the tagline states, 'It's the story of a man, a woman and a rabbit in a triangle of trouble.', and all these years later the movie is still as entertaining as it was when it debuted in 1988. The movie was originally based on the novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit by author Gary K. Wolf. Some of the elements changed for the film version but a lot of the characters remained, such as detective Eddie Valiant, the seductive Jessica Rabbit, and her husband, the famous Roger Rabbit. While in the last few years there seemes to be less attention given to our beloved characters, there have been notable accomplishments along the way. Let's take a look...

A Farewell To Toys R Us

It was recently announced that the last big box toy retailer, Toys R Us, will be closing. I think for anyone who grew up between 1970 to 2000, this store was a lot more than some large-scale toy depot. Going to Toys R Us could be much like a visit to Disneyland, it was a special occasion. As kids, we wandered through the cavernous isles filled with everything we could want. Parents spent many hours of their shopping time easily finding what they needed for birthdays, holidays and good report cards. This was before the internet age, when you can look for, find and purchase everything with the click of a button. That's the more preferred method now, and the future generation won't know what they're missing.

15 Years Of Posting Jessica Rabbit News

2018 marks my 15th year of posting Jessica Rabbit news and info! This all began back in 2003, I started a Jessica Rabbit Yahoo Group just as her pins first started to be created during the Official Pin Collecting heyday. I was continually surprised to see even more merchandise soon follow like statues, mugs, shirts and more! After several great years on the Yahoo Group I decided to buy the domain name. Slowly, I added more and more to the site with things like Merchandise Reviews and Artist Interviews. The Jessica news might have slowed down in the last couple of years but I keep the site here, always dedicated to the Toontown diva herself. Jessica Rabbit is my favorite cartoon character and has been ever since I saw the movie in 1988. I am glad I can serve as a place people can always go to learn more or get any information. I thank everyone who continues to enjoy this site and am very honored to be at over 1.5 Million Page Views today. Here's a sample of the front page news and art from over the last 15 years!
