“P-P-Please!”

Roger Rabbit is the titular deuteragonist of Disney/Amblin’s 1988 hybrid film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and the true main protagonist of his entire universe. He was also the official mascot of the broadcast television network, the American Broadcasting Company (ABC-TV).

He is an anthropomorphic rabbit of the film— a frantic, over-anxious type who often stutters (even while screaming). He is also based on the popular cartoon characters who were well known during the Golden Age of Animation.

Why He Rocks

  1. He gets along very well with other Toons.
  2. He makes people laugh, which is something Toons are supposed to be good at doing.
  3. Despite being the deuteragonist of the film, he is one of Disney's most popular characters, since he stole the show.
  4. He was ABC-TV's official mascot.
  5. Great quotes like: “P-p-please!”, “What a genius!”, and “Jumpin’ Jeepers!”
  6. Despite his goofiness, he is aware of what most people think of cartoons.
  7. Since he became very popular, he got three of his own short films.
  8. He was the one who drove the plot and was more iconic than Eddie.
  9. He loves carrot cake, just like many real rabbits eat carrots.
  10. He is a caring rabbit because he makes sure baby Herman is okay, acting a father figure, even though he screws up sometimes.
    • Speaking of which, like Donald Duck, Sylvester Pussycat, Tom Cat, and Mario (SMG4): he serves as a constant reminder for all of us to be brave, keep searching, hold family close, and never give up no matter how great the odds are against you; in which shows when trying to do his best in shorts where he was quite unlucky within his clownish hijinks.
  11. He adores his human wife Jessica Rabbit.
  12. Great voice acting by Charles Fleischer.
  13. He is extremely well-animated.
  14. Very well-drawn and brilliant character design.
  15. Changed the way we see live-action/animated movies for good.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. His exaggeratedly dorky voice and antics can either range from being charming or on the Jar-Jar-Binks levels of annoying.

Trivia

  • He loves carrot cake, just like many real rabbits eat carrots.
  • In addition to being the deuteragonist of the film, he is one of Disney's most popular characters.
