Robosexuality – Part 13

That awkward moment when you realize your mom is interested one of your guy friends.

Personally speaking, if my mom were single and involved with Optimus Prime...I think that'd be pretty awesome, actually. ^_^;

2014/07/11

To all the writers of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero who thought that writing Cobra Commander like Yosemite Sam was preferable to writing him like Adolf Hitler…this one’s for you.

Shit just got real, people.

Damn. Things just got real, people.

Strange Moments in Cartoons – Part 16

The sad thing about going back and watching cartoons you enjoyed as a kid is that they’re never quite the way you remember them.

Uh...is moose and squirrel?

Nitpicking 101 – Marvin Acme’s Other Woman

2014/06/29

Pop quiz: In the classic movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit, a photo of the late Marvin Acme taken by Eddie Valiant appeared on the front page of the Los Angeles Chronicle. Which female toon was he pictured with?

I’m guessing most of you said Jessica Rabbit, right?

So, to everyone who answered that, here’s my follow-up question: Are you sure about that?

Because the headline "Man Bites Dog" is so yesterday.

Take a closer look.

Man, they were already abusing Photoshop image editing back in 1947.

The female toon with Acme on the newspaper cover bears absolutely no resemblance to Jessica Rabbit. And it’s not just her face, either.

Why does Roger Rabbit look like a toon rabbit version of Scott Disick in that picture?

True, both of them sport impressive busts and are wearing shoulderless dresses with evening gloves and stud earrings, but the similarities end there. Faux-Jessica’s dress either has a halter neck or is attached to a choker via a brooch and her gloves are elbow rather than shoulder-length. Perhaps most noticeably, her proportions and facial features are more realistic and human, with the end result being that she looks more like a cartoon version of a sexy woman than a caricature of one.

The real world explanation is, of course, that Jessica Rabbit’s character design apparently underwent a complete overhaul at some point after the live-action sequences were filmed. This does, however, raise the question of why the scenes pictured here weren’t reshot with an updated newspaper prop and a hand double for Bob Hoskins to eliminate the continuity error since they’re all (or at least predominantly) inserts where the actor’s face is never seen.

Subliminally Yours – Part 7: Who Framed Roger Rabbit

2014/02/08

Remember the old urban legend about a female toon experiencing a wardrobe malfunction in the film? Well, guess what, folks? It’s 100% true. But here’s the funny thing: it has absolutely nothing to do with Jessica Rabbit flashing her firecrotch. Oh, no. The incident in question actually involves Betty Boop.

Needless to say, when the above nipple slip, which was inserted by some mischievous animators as a joke, was discovered, it was quickly removed by Disney. The only reason the footage survives in uncensored form today is because some early domestic and certain contemporary foreign language versions of the movie, both broadcast and home video releases, inadvertently omitted the omission.
