The Inside Story of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”

If you’re a fan of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, you’ll want to check out Eddie Deezen’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit: The Inside Story.

If you do, you’ll learn…

  • Why the title to Who Framed Roger Rabbit doesn’t end with a question mark.
  • That before Bob Hoskins earned the starring role that Harrison Ford, Bill Murray, Sylvester Stallone, Robert Redford, Jack Nicholson, and Ed Harris were all considered.  You’ll also learn who the comedian was that was never offered the role, but would have “happily taken on the role of Eddie.”
  • The silly reason John Cleese didn’t get the role that ultimately went to Christopher Lloyd.
  • Why Who Framed Roger Rabbit had the most cartoon characters from different companies in the same project, “yet  Popeye, Tom & Jerry, Little Lulu, Caspar the Friendly Ghost, and the Terrytoon characters (except for Mighty Mouse)” didn’t make it into the film.
  • And a whole lot more.

Happy Thanksgiving and “You’re Welcome!”

Today is Thanksgiving and many of us will come together with family and friends to pause and give thanks for what we have and perhaps what we’ve been sparedCharles Dickens may have said it best…

  • “Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many–not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”

Of course not everyone gives thanks.  The Sexy Pilgrim doesn’t. Instead he says, “You’re welcome.”

I hope that you and yours have one of the best Thanksgiving Days ever. Count your blessings, eat too much turkey, ignore that family member who irritates you, make big plans, eat too much pie, doze in front of the tube, have a bit more turkey, and remember to watch a bit of the parade and some football!

Mills, Burchett, Gonzales, Staton: 3 Kinds of Awesome

Chris Mills currently writes three free weekly webcomics.



Weekly Webcomics.

I suppose I should have added, “Awesome!” but you know I wouldn’t be posting about them if they weren’t really good.

Grave Digger is my favorite of the bunch.  Of course Grave Digger is one of my all-time favorite comics [let’s not limit this to just crime comics].  Rick Burchett provides the art and it is perfect.  Mills and Burchett.  ‘Nuff said.

Perils on Planet X is written by Mills with art by Gene Gonzales.  If you’re a fan of Flash Gordon,  John Carter: Warlord of Mars and good comics, you’ll dig Perils on Planet X.  You can take that to the bank.

Femme Noir features the team of Mills [writer] and Joe Staton [artist] taking readers down the dark streets of Port Nocturne to follow the adventures of a mysterious female vigilante.

Lost 3 Stooges Film Found!

Pictured above is a frame from Hello Pop an early two-color short that featured Ted Healy and The Three Stooges.  No prints of Hello Pop exist. 

Hello Pop along with other early films (the most famous being Todd Browning’s London After Midnight starring Lon Chaney) were lost forever because of a vault fire at the Culver City studio.  

Hello Pop was the only film featuring The Three Stooges that no longer existed.

That is until a private film collector in Australia turned up a copy!  Soon collectors worldwide will be able to see and add Hello Pop to their movie collections.

Now if someone could just find a print of London After Midnight.

Thanks and a nyuk-nyuk-nyuk to the NY Daily Post.
