Now Available - Pulling A Rabbit Out Of A Hat: The Making Of Roger Rabbit Book

A new book recently released heavily details the making of Who Framed Roger Rabbit - starting with the original novel by Gary K. Wolf, to the impact that followed and continues all these years later. Pulling a Rabbit Out of a Hat: The Making of Roger Rabbit by Ross Anderson covers every aspect of the project that fans of the film, animation and Disney will greatly appreciate. While reading you'll start to realize it's a miracle the film was even made. It's a "Making Of" book that has more puzzle pieces than a detective story.

Packed with quotes, dates, places - and even referencing this very website - Ross Anderson has included everything a Roger Rabbit fan could ask for. It took more than a village to raise this Rabbit and now you can get to know the crew involved in the creation of the movie. Which directors were considered for the film? What Toontown gags didn't make it into the movie? How many Roger Rabbit short cartoons were originally planned!? Find out all this and more in The Making of Roger Rabbit: Pulling a Rabbit Out of a Hat. Buy your copy today!!

The Perils Of Pauline: A 40 Year History

Lady, Louise, Paula, the beautiful girl, the maiden - she's had quite a few aliases before officially being named Pauline!

First and foremost Pauline is notable for being the original video game damsel-in-distress. However, that storyline had seen a change with the release of 2017's Super Mario Odyssey. Along with it came a renewed interest in this damsel turned mayor, and after almost 40 years Pauline has finally become a playable character!

In Memory Of Richard Williams


I am deeply saddened to learn about the passing of animation legend Richard Williams. His understanding of movement and illusion is what made Who Framed Roger Rabbit possible. His works remain as some of the best examples of brilliant animation.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit Custom Figures

Several years back I decided to make a Mego-style set of Who Framed Roger Rabbit figures. Luckily there was a great website that provided a lot of pieces and accessories needed. It sat as an unfinished project for some time until earlier in the year when I decided to get it completed. It was a big learning lesson in garment making, research and patience...

Coming Soon - Who Framed Roger Rabbit Vinyl And Pins By Mondo

By the time Who Framed Roger Rabbit made its debut in 1988 CD's had started to make their appearance in music stores. Vinyl records were on their last days and would quickly become a thing of the past. Music lovers have argued that the rich details of sound are lost when music is transferred to CD and digital formats. Roger Rabbit was fortunate enough to have a vinyl pressing, and for the first time in 30 years it is getting a glorious rerelease.

Hollywood Studios 30th Anniversary

The time period of the late 1980's and early 90's brought about the Disney Renaissance - with renewed interest in fairytale cartoons and new park experiences. Who Framed Roger Rabbit can be considered the beginning of this time period, but since it is not a fully animated movie it often goes to The Little Mermaid. However, Roger Rabbit is what set The Little Mermaid swimming. Who Framed Roger Rabbit brought about enough acclaim that more animated movies were put into production. With one success after another, these new characters found a home in the newly opened park...

A Roger Rabbit Sequel Is Sitting At Disney

Rumors and talk are back again. Will there ever be any new projects for Roger Rabbit? Talk of a sequel started right after the movie saw a successful release in 1988, with a target set for around the early 90's. Then, due to a possible feud between Roger Rabbit's co-owners (Disney's Michael Eisner and Amblin's Steven Spielberg) Roger almost vanished from the face of Disney entirely. It's not something that was ever fully explained. Here's a timeline to take a look back at all the talk, serious or rumor, about the Roger Rabbit sequel.
