Park Ranger Jessica Rabbit Has An Important Message

 

Some time ago I did a poll for the favorite Jessica Rabbit outfit shown on screen - sparkly dress, non-sparkly dress, Nurse Uniform, Park Ranger uniform, Wedding Dress, swimsuit. Naturally the sparkly dress took it, but it seems Park Ranger Jessica Rabbit is rtiking a chord lately. I posted this clip from Trail Mix-Up of Jessica reciting the famous Smokey Bear quote "Only you can prevent forest fires." Except Jessica delivers the line in an exuberant breathyness that Smokey did not. The reel has received a lot of attention, with many people never having seen the cartoon before. Move over Smokey, Jessica Rabbit has a new platform.

Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers Is Exactly The Movie We Needed

Movies combining live-action and animation certainly isn't a new concept. Who Framed Roger Rabbit was arguably the first film to merge the two successfully. While we also recall classic movies like Mary Poppins and Pete's Dragon, the on-screen time humans and toons spend together is relatively short. Since Roger Rabbit, other companies have tried to follow suit, with Cool World and Space Jam still stuck in everyone's memory (the latter receiving a long-awaited sequel in 2021).

With the announcement of a Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers movie, and the early rumors of it being a hybrid film, I started to get my hopes up... cautiously. Now that I have seen it, I can't express enough how thrilled, entertained and surprised I was every step of the way.

Now Available - New Jessica Rabbit Novel By Gary K. Wolf

Get ready for a curveball of epic proportions in Gary K. Wolf's latest novel, Jessica Rabbit: XERIOUS Business. In this story, Jessica is a human. Not a cartoon human - an actual human. She’s living an existence that’s not so much humdrum as it is unbearable. When a chance opportunity puts Jessica’s skills to the test (some of which she had to utilize living with her step-family) she finds herself becoming a secret agent for the XERIOUS Organization. It’s here that she not only comes into her own, but she also gets her iconic look and style that we are very familiar with.

Jessica Rabbit Merchandise Review #72 - ReAction Figures

The Who Framed Roger Rabbit ReAction Figures by Super7 were recently released, much to my huge surprise. When the movie debuted in 1988, there were a series of traditional 3¾" action figures made called Animates and a 6" scale of bendy figures called Flexies. They remained the only carded figures of the characters ever produced for nearly 35 years. Super7 has finally broken that streak, adding five of the movie's characters to the popular ReAction Figure line - including Jessica! 

Lets take a closer look...
