Disney Fact #122

Remember the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

This movie is complicated for me to explain my feelings about. As a kid, I always enjoyed the movie. It was one of my father’s favorites and I have good memories of watching it with him. But the movie also made me scared, and kind of sad, too (the whole DIP part with the shoe?!?!).

Yes, my thoughts exactly.

Anyways, I’ve been meaning to do a post regarding this movie, since it is a goldmine for innuendos and hidden references. I found this fact to be very interesting, and not too creepy, either!

Whaddya mean, creepy?!

Roger Rabbit was designed as an amalgamation of classic cartoon characters, a creation that felt at home with the well-known toons but was still unique. The filmmakers described Roger as having the face of a Warner Brothers character, the body of a Disney protagonist and the attitude of a Tex Avery creation. His overalls are based on Goofy’s outfit, his tie on Porky Pig and his gloves on Mickey Mouse, though Roger’s are yellow to stand out against his white fur.
