    Jessica Rabbit removed from Trunk- Roger Rabbits Cartoon Spin

    Yes and no. As previously stated, they were the ones to purchase the film rights in the early 80s. 1/2 of the studios producing was Touchstone, which was just one of the many production company labels Disney used for their more mature films. Additionally, WDAS mainstays, like Andreas Déjà and...

    News Jessica Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    If I had to guess, probably “Roger & Jessica’s Car Toon Spin”? I can’t imagine why they’d reuse any part of the sign if it was getting a completely new name. Plus, synergy with Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway.

    You have to love everything when you work for the company. It’s in the contract. Otherwise, they let you go.

    Jessica Rabbit removed from Trunk- Roger Rabbits Cartoon Spin

    I’m going off of the poster board that’s going in the queue, and their recent track record of over complicated unnecessary backstories and “B plots”. It reads like Armchair stuff brought into reality. I do find it weird that people want a book report ride. Car Toon Spin is very much like Mr...

    Jessica Rabbit removed from Trunk- Roger Rabbits Cartoon Spin

    I think that’s really all this boils down to. If she was relegated to a damsel for the entire ride, I’d understand. But it’s just used as a way to introduce her into the plot. She’s “kidnapped” in one scene. The next scene she’s in, she’s knocking them over the head with a mallet. There are...

    I’d imagine the latter? If it was getting a name change, they’d just make a new sign. Disney’s cheap, but they aren’t going to cut and tape stuff together. Edit: Or maybe they’re renaming it “Roger and Jessica’s Car Toon Spin” to tie it closer to Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. That could...

    I still think they should tear down the Walt statue and rename the park Igerland. Who’s with me?

    ToonTown came from Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It was a tie in land from the start, but they organically found a way to incorporate Classic Mickey. A Roger Rabbit ride in ToonTown is anything but weird.

    It does seem like an interesting idea. But will Disney be all “representing Canadian culture” with this one? I don’t recall changing into a red panda. The occasional pink giraffe or purple moose, but never a red panda.

    I grew up going to Disney World, and I always found it odd there was no Canadian representation. When I finally went on the Disneyland version, I was surprised to see the Mountie. Better than nothing 🤷‍♂️

    I’m Canadian. At least Disneyland has something, there’s nothing in Florida! But that doesn’t stop Small World from being one of my favourites

    News Jessica Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    Fair point. I don’t think it was in bad faith though. After things were done, Walt and crew focused the brunt of their attention on the next thing. At that time, it was Progress City/E.P.C.O.T. We really don’t know what they would have done if they were given the opportunity to consult with...

    It’s genuinely confusing what they are waiting for on that one. Can’t be any harder to remove than the Jessica Rabbit from the trunk.

    Her character really was “appearances are deceiving” incarnate. As time goes on, however, it seems that appearances and aesthetic are more valued than substance. Almost like we’re going backwards a bit, in some regards.

    It’s also important to remember that Small World was a last minute addition to the World’s Fair, and was on an accelerated timeline. I have no doubt that, given his obsession with detail and accuracy, he would have tried to do something like that if they had several years instead of 11 months.

    Especially when that seemed to be the prediction for years. Though it wasn’t because of any sensitivity mission, but rather, because of relevancy in comparison to their current milked IPs.

    I always took it like they were both kidnapped, and we the audience with Lenny or Benny...or whatever rescued both of them early on to help defeat the Weasels.

    It needlessly over complicated the ride. Before it was just “weasels plan to dip the city, they kidnap Jessica and attempt to bump of Roger so that nobody stops them”. Easy to understand. But now we’re adding in all these backstories. It’s a 3 minute dark ride, the backstory shouldn’t be the...

    It’s just a bizarre choice. Like, why? What justifies it? Is it the kidnapping? Cartoon females are kidnapped in a lot of children’s media, including the most popular ongoing children’s video game series. Is it the trunk? It’s a talking cartoon car. It’s not the end of the world, no, but what...
