Who Framed Roger Rabbit (Robert Zemeckis, 1988)

Presented by Mihaela Mihailova

Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a live-action/animated film based on Gary K. Wolf’s 1981 novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? In this movie’s version of 1940s Hollywood, the cartoon inhabitants of the animated Toontown regularly work and interact with human characters. After Roger Rabbit, a toon, becomes the prime suspect in the murder of human businessman Marvin Acme, it is up to private eye Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) to unravel the truth. The film, which celebrates its thirtieth anniversary this year, remains a landmark in both animation filmmaking and the history of American entertainment more broadly. Despite not being the first live-action/animation hybrid, Who Framed Roger Rabbit elevated the fusion between these two cinematic modes aesthetically and technologically, resulting in a visually stunning and hilarious love letter to classical animation and film noir.
