Roger the Rabbit vs. Fritz the Cat

If Roger the Rabbit had been drawn by R.Crumb, the guy who drew Fritz the Cat.


First of all, the movie would have been called Who Bonked Roger Rabbit.

And Jessica would have been really bad, not just drawn that way.

The First Winning Entry!

This is what won Adam Nunez First Prize in my big Roger Rabbit rare collectibles giveaway extravaganza.  The question was, if Roger and Jessica Rabbit went to a costume party, what costumes would they wear.

Here is Adam's answer.

Roger has had a wonderful career in films, and a fulfilling life with his wonderful wife, Jessica. Being a natural born star, Roger didn't get some of the same opportunities others did. While some rabbits waited on tables or told jokes at an open mic, Roger was being discovered by some of the biggest names in toons. His rise to superstardom was meteoric!

Always aiming to please, Roger thought long and hard about what he and Jessica might transform into for a costume party. Popping his rejected ideas as though they were balloons at the end of a party, Roger stumbled on to something that sent him reeling, and also gave him a great idea. He figured out a way he could do something he had always wanted to do.

It was his top hat from the film Bohemian Rabbitsy, in which he played the rich uncle who lost all of his money betting on turtle races only to find out his nephew had made a fortune breeding racing turtles.

Roger imagined what he could do at a party with a nice top hat. Jessica saw what he was thinking and declared it brilliant!

The night of the party, Jessica entered alone, dressed as a stunning magician. Casually milling about, she placed the top hat on a nearby table along with a sign that said, "Just say the magic words".

As folks wandered by, the occasional curious soul would come up with whatever they could muster. Most folks went with the usual "Hocus Pocus" or "Abracadabra". Roger never missed a chance to magically emerge from the top hat, land with his usual flair upon the nearby table. With a tip of his cane, he thrust the hat into the air just right, so it landed perfectly atop his head as he shouted, "TAAA-DAAAAAA!" Once the laughter died down, Roger went back into hiding, barely able to contain his excitement. Ready for anything, he listened closely as Jerry Mouse hopped onto the table and tapped the rhythm Roger loved so well. "Tap - tap - ta - tap - tap". After a short beat, a skinny white arm shot into the air holding a rotating barber pole as a voice inside the hat sang, "Twooooo biiiiits!" before sliding back into the hat with a mighty WHOOSH and THUNK.

Rebel Wolf walked by whistling his tune and said, "Man alive. It shore must be tough gettin' a haircut 'round heah," before continuing on his way.

As the party continued, Roger left his hiding place and donned his magician's assistant outfit so he could accompany Jessica for the rest of the night. 

Sensing an opportunity, Wile E Coyote took Roger's old spot, placing a small plate of bird seed on the table in his usual fashion. As Foghorn Leghorn decided to try a sample, Wile E's furry paws grabbed him around the neck. Unfazed, Foghorn dismissed the seed and declared, "I say, boy, if you're tryin' to catch yourself a bird, you're doin' it all wrong. All wrong, I say."

Wile E's eyes grew as big as saucers as he exited the hat and realized the size of his catch. Licking his lips, he released Foghorn so he could don his napkin and grab his knife and fork. 

Foghorn, having dodged this sort of thing for years, casually grabbed a nearby serving tray. Wile E rang like a bell the second his fork hit the tray, encouraging him to call it a night. Foghorn grabbed the hat and flicked it to Roger, saying, "Here y'are, son. We don't want no more trouble with this now, do we? Wait. Gimme that hat." Foghorn took it back, slamming the top of it with his hand several times to ensure it was empty. 3 minutes, 6 watches, 17 dalmations, a faucet, and 2 confused cats later, he was satisfied and handed it back to Roger.

"What a great night, Jessica!" Roger exclaimed.

"It was, my dear," Jessica cooed. "Now for one more trick."

"Oh boy! I love tricks!"


With a tap of her wand on the table, Jessica gave Roger the most luscious nasal clearing kiss she could. Ears clanging, eyes bulging, and bow tie spinning, Roger held on with his lips as his body spun and contorted uncontrollably. Just before passing out, Roger sighed, "Jessica, you ARE magic..."

And The First Winner Was.....Adam Nunez!

Here's the first winner of my big, big, big Roger Rabbit collectibles extravaganza giveaway contest.  Adam Nunez, posing with his priceless collection of winnings, a Blu-ray DVD of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, a limited edition printed copy of my new book Who Wacked Roger Rabbit, and an extremely rare zillion simoleon note all autographed by me.


To refresh your memories, I asked fans to tell me what Roger and Jessica would wear to a costume party. The answers I got were incredible.  Very creative stuff.  The awards committee had a tough time picking a winner.

Adam’s answer was so wackadoodle, so funny, so bizarre, so quirky that I suspect Adam might be a Toon himself.

If you didn’t win this time, there’s still plenty of contest left.  I’ll give away a second set of prizes, the DVD, the book, and the note, on August 30.  Same rules.  What would Roger and Jessica wear to a costume party.

If you already entered, your entry is still in play.  Enter again if you want to.  There’s no limit.  I’ll happily read ‘em all.

Send your entries to rogerrabbit@garywolf.com.

Be creative, think waaaay outside the box.  Remember, these are Toons we’re talking about.

Until next time, this is Gary K. Wolf saying have fun and stay Tooned.

The Expendables.

Wolfman's T-shirt of the Day.  

This barely T-shirted young lady was distributing promo temporary tattoos for The Expendables movie.  Did I take one?  Of course I did.  I mean get real.  What man wouldn't let this woman slap a tat on his body.


That tat had real-life staying power.  I couldn't get it off even after I got tired of looking at it and wanted it off.  I've still got bits and pieces of it hanging clinging to my arm.

One reason why I never got a real one.

Hometown Stylin'.

Wolfman's T-shirt of the Day. 

Wearing my Earlville (Illinois) Red Raiders Sweatshirt.


 I'm just a small town country boy at heart.

Truth be told, I grew up shooting rabbits, not writing about them. I like the way I'm doing it now, with a typewriter instead of a shotgun, a whole lot better. Way less messy, and a lot more fun.

Here he's using my red Jade yoga mat. I hate it when he does that.  Have you ever smelled rabbit sweat?  P.U.

And the first winner is........

Hey, how you doing all you Roger Rabbit fans out there.

This is Gary K. Wolf, the Creator of Roger Rabbit coming to you live from Toontown Central.  I’m here to announce the first winner in my big, spectacular Roger Rabbit giveaway extravaganza contest.

To refresh your memories, I asked fans to tell me what Roger and Jessica would wear to a costume party. The answers I got were incredible.  Very creative stuff.  The awards committee had a tough time picking a winner. 

And that winner is…. Roger Rabbit fan Adam Nunez.  Adam’s answer was so wackadoodle, so funny, so bizarre that I suspect Adam might be a Toon himself.

Adam didn’t just give me costume ideas, he wrote me a little story to go along with them.  Here’s what Adam wrote.

Hint.  He's a handy rabbit to have around!

Play Ball!

Wolfman's T-shirt of the Day.

The Official Toontown Terrors Baseball Jersey.


Roger Rabbit plays second base.  I mean literally.  He IS second base. Baby Herman is shortstop, naturally.  Benny the Cab brings in the relief pitchers from the bull pen.  Which, need I say, is populated by real bulls.  Toons rarely play nine innings.  They're laughing so hard after five that the umpires call the game.

That's sports in Toontown!

Aloha From Toontown


Wolfman's T-shirt of the Day.

A custom made Toontown aloha shirt created for me out of a child's bed sheet by Roger Rabbit collector extraordinaire George Bigley.


 Only two of these exist.  I have one, Roger Rabbit has the other.  Roger's had to be specially tailored to accommodate his fluffy tail.  Good thing George didn't make one for Jessica! He would have had to sacrifice two or three more bed sheets!

Wolf Bears Rabbit

Wolfman's Jacket of the Day. 

Who Framed Roger Rabbit Crew Jacket.


This is the winter weight Who Framed Roger Rabbit crew jacket. I wore this during the filming at Elstree Studios in England.

It has the original logo with a pair of handcuffs dangling off the underscore. The handcuffs were removed from the logo before the movie came out. I suspect Disney/Spielberg did not want to give the impression this was some kind of kinky bondage movie. Instead of the non-kinky story of the love affair between a rabbit and a woman.

They embroidered my name on the front which gave rise to on-going crew joke "Wolf Bears Rabbit."
