Are you a WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? Geek like me? Well, Merry Christmas!

Published at: Dec. 15, 2010, 10:45 p.m. CST

Hey folks, Harry here with a link to something you can spend a good 40 minutes of your life blissfully exploring. This site features and focuses upon ANIMATION BACKGROUNDS - the painted worlds in which animated characters come to life upon. In particular, with Roger Rabbit, the sheer number of animated and moving things - didn't necessarily allow for much time to appreciate the brilliant work and sneaky little bits of genius that worked its way into this brilliant movie from Robert Zemeckis. More like this. The TOONS TO WAR was the one I wanted desperately to see. Just seeing Rog & gang tackling the Axis and their animated villains. Drool. This link came compliments of the man that animates the corner... Cartuna!

    I would have never noticed all of the faces in the architecture of Toon Town.

    But WFRR was a pretty awful movie.

    Wow. This site is still fucked.

    by Bruce Thomas Wayne

    When will the site be like every other website that's like, you know, functional? This shit is getting ridiculous. I know you guys can handle it better than this.

    Roger Rabbit is completely overrated...

    by TenderBranson

    ...compared to Jordan's Space Jam. Space Jam had that R. Kelly cut. What did Roger Rabbit have???

  • Dec. 15, 2010, 11:23 p.m. CST

    Finally agree Harry

    by maxjohnson1971

    RR was awesome. One of the first Laserdiscs I bought and still have! Almost as cherished as my Star Wars Laserdiscs (you know, the one where Greedo shoots first?) and my Cannibal Holocaust Laserdisc. Loves me some LD. Just hope that Pioneer keeps on chugging.

    Don't understand all the negativity...

    by colonelcaine

    Anyone who claims to hate WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? must truly be dead inside. It's one of the most joyful and technically amazing films ever made and it still works like gangbusters for children today, even though most of them probably don't know who half of the cartoons in this movie are. Thanks for pointing this out, Harry. I really enjoy seeing the ridiculous amount of detail that went into just the background paintings on this flick. It just goes to show how much genuine love Zemeckis and Co. had for the material they were so incredibly lucky to be working with.

  • Dec. 16, 2010, 12:23 a.m. CST

    Roger Rabbit! Yay!

    by L.H.Puttgrass

    Haters gonna hate. <p> And speaking of hate... <p> People are really losing it over the site reconstruction. Shit happens. When the bugs are worked out, the site will be running nice and smooth. Until then, we'll just have to live with the quirks... <p> Ahh, look. The much talked about Edit button of legend! ...and then, POOF! Like Keyser Söze.

    Clicking on each comments to read them

    by TheJudger

    I am hoping this is just a bug of some sort awaiting the iron of out. Outside of that I like the direction the site is taking. Cant build Rome in a day.

  • ...and it works! I still can't even believe they made that movie. It's the kind of thing you dream about but is an impossibility.

  • Dec. 16, 2010, 2:22 a.m. CST

    OMG!! What an amazing site! Great find Harry!

    by BigTwinkie

    Thanks SO much! Too bad the guy isn't doing it anymore but there's a wealth of gorgeous, classic stuff on there. Hello new wallpapers!!

    by Mike Whaite

    If you haven't got time to watch this, try this instead... Roger Rabbit in 60 seconds with an added twist at the end - http://vimeo.com/17667047

    Nice

    by Josh

    Never noticed all of the details put into Toon Town. Great movie. Gotta go watch it again now. I would drop the '?' from your title, Harry, though. All 'nerds' of the movie know there's no question mark.

  • Dec. 16, 2010, 5:43 a.m. CST

    Oooops...

    by maxjohnson1971

    I meant the version of Star Wars where HAN shoots first.

    Pinocchio

    by PeteSpectrum

    The Pinocchio backgrounds are stunning. Real Artistry there.

    If archaeologists in the future unearth a copy of Roger Rabbit, they will assume that someone from their time had made it and buried it as a prank. It's unbelievable that movie got made and was of such quality. It's nice AICN throws up Roger Rabbit bones from time to time, even if there's to be no sequel.

  • Dec. 16, 2010, 7:21 a.m. CST

    Veryy cool

    by T 1000 xp professional

    Thanks, Harry!

    That opening cartoon was more elaborate than most in the 40's

    by Kamaji

    Think of it: you had characters moving towards and away from the camera, at crazy angles, items growing bigger or smaller: it really was a testament to Richard Williams' skills regarding animation and what it could do.

    "What did Roger Rabbit have?"

    by mortsleam

    Daffy Duck and Donald Duck in a piano duel. Both Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse being the dirty rotten bastards they should be. Betty Boop being descriminated against because "Nobody hires black'n'whites anymore." Christopher Lloyd as Judge Motherfucking Doom. Jessica Rabbit's legs. Mel Blanc in one of his final performances as the voice of Bugs, Daffy, et al. Fuck Space Jam.

  • Dec. 16, 2010, 8:58 a.m. CST

    Jessica Rabbit. FUCKING JESSICA RABBIT!!!

    by Le Vicious Fishus

    WFRR was worth the price of admission for the impossibly, ultimately, epically fuckable JESSICA RABBIT.<BR><BR>You should be on your KNEES thanking Zemeckis for making this film.<BR><BR>JESSICA RABBIT!!!

    Anyone know where I can get the latest fashions round here?

    by Scalvador

    The talkbacks of a well known online geek community seem like the natural place to look first.

  • Dec. 16, 2010, 10:18 a.m. CST

    Roger Rabbit is the rare high concept movie

    by skimn

    that has subtext and meat to its bones. The class structure of the Toons and the Chinatown-like plot, along with the Judge's "Solution", the Dip (shades of Hitler's solution of an Ayran Nation)...not to mention the special effects, cartoon characters new and classic, how could anyone not like it????

    ROGER RABBIT UNCENSORED ON BLU-RAY NOW!

    Jessica Rabbit's... legs? Her legs were the main attraction? Legs? Granted she's a cartoon character, but...

  • Dec. 16, 2010, 11:56 a.m. CST

    mike..maybe he's a leg man, but it was her other, ahem

    by skimn

    attributes that catch my eye. She's the cartoon Christina Hendricks!

  • Roger: Yeah, check the probate. My Uncle Thumper had a problem with his probate, and he had to take these biiiiig pills and drink lots of water. Eddie: Not prostate, you idiot! Probate!

  • Dec. 16, 2010, 12:51 p.m. CST

    Dammit, when are they gonna release the blu ray?

    by Han Cholo

    I want that shit.

    People who hate Roger Rabbit

    by lonecow12

    Don't know anything about cinema or film noir, or comedy. There is like some new wave of idiots who go around saying it sucked. Also I'm sure all these same people think Back to the Future II was the best of the trilogy.

  • Dec. 16, 2010, 11:41 p.m. CST

    Maybe just a coincedence but I clicked on the link and my computer

    by moonlightdrive

    immediately crashed. Everything froze up on screen and after waiting a good few minutes for it to fix itself (and ending tasks through the task manager) I had to restart using the task manager.
