Waaaay back in 1988 I saw a wonderful movie which blew my little young mind, made me giddy beyond belief, and created a dreamworld of fantasy. I speak, of course, of Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
The Amazing Story
The year is 1947 and the local is old time Hollywood. Toons are real and they bouncingly interact with our human world. The biggest toon star is Roger Rabbit, who runs afoul of the law and seeks the help of washed up private eye Eddie Valiant. Mystery, suspense, and crazy dancing culminate in an animated battle to end it all.
The Guest Stars
What old time toons are not in this movie? Betty Boop is here for the fans of the obscure. Daffy and Donald run Duck amuck in a battle royale. And Bugs and Mickey drop in for a bit of banter while things are falling away. More and more populate every inch of the screen.
Fans of old time toon short, filled with mayhem and chaos, have to love the start of this movie, where we get to see Roger Rabbit hard to work, doing his thing, and hopefully, this time, not blowing his lines again.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit is full of fun, merriment, and more toons then you can shake an ink quill at. Roger makes me laugh.
