 Hey, Toontownians.  Welcome to my new blog, Rabbit Tales!!!  Over the next couple of weeks I'm going to be talking about a lot of Roger and Jessica Rabbit stuff.

As you all know, I created the character of Jessica Rabbit, widely regarded as one of the foremost sex symbols of all time.  I based her on some real women that I fantasized about in my youth: Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable, Lauren Bacall, and Veronica Lake, the woman with the peek-a-boo hair style.  Those were my real-world inspirations.  My fantasy inspiration was Tex Avery's Red Hot Riding Hood.  If you don't know who or what Red Hot is, check out one of her cartoons on You Tube.  You'll see Jessica's Grandmother strutting her stuff.

Tomorrow, we'll talk about how Jessica came to look like she does.

In the meantime, if you want to read Jessica's origins story, and find out where Toons come from, check out my novel, Jessica Rabbit: XERIOUS Business, on
