Flashback Friday: Roger Rabbit


"Who Framed Roger Raibbit?" was released in 1988.  We visited Walt Disney World in 1991, so Roger was all over the place!  We saw him at MGM Studios and at Epcot.  I've written a few past Flashback Friday posts about the characters at Epcot who rode on the Double Decker Bus.  Roger was part of that crew.  I think this was the last time I saw him at any of the parks.  Most kids today don't even know who he is, sadly.  

The film, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" was a murder mystery set in the 1940s where "toons" could interact with humans.  The "toons" lived in "Toontown" near Hollywood.  Roger is married to Jessica, a human toon.  Baby Herman is a 50 year old toon who looks like an infant.  Roger and Herman work for RK Maroon at Maroon Cartoon Studios.  

If you have plans to visit Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, I suggest you watch "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" before you visit!  It will help you appreciate Disneyland's Toontown and Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin attraction much more!

  3. Sadly, this is the best picture I have with him!!! If he came back now, a lot of guests would have no idea who he is. At WDW, I don't think there is any mention of him anymore- unlike DL.

  6. I'm proud to say...my kids would recognize Roger Rabbit. His movie and his shorts are favorites around here. VERY funny! I'd love to find him in a park.
