The Jessica Rabbit Chronicles.

The Beginning. 

 
I grew up in a small town in Illinois where the boys outnumbered the girls by 35 to 1.  Good luck getting a date if you’re president of the chess club. 
 
With no real girls to lust after, my dream girls where all movie stars.  I based Jessica Rabbit on several of the cinematic sex symbols of my youth.  Red heads Esther Williams, Susan Hayward, and Rita Hayworth.  And the fabulous cartoon red head Red Hot Riding Hood created by legendary animator Tex Avery. 
 
Red Hot first appeared in 1943 in an MGM cartoon titled, what else but, Red Hot Riding Hood. 
 
 
You can see why a love-starved country boy fell for Red Hot hard. 
 
Check out her eternally horny pursuer, The Wolf, ogling Red Hot from his table.  Resemble any similarly named writer you know?  I’ll talk more about Wolfs later as The Jessica Rabbit Chronicles continue.
