Easter Bunnies: Sci-Fi & Fantasy’s Greatest Rabbits
• This is an updated and expanded version of a feature from the SFX Archives. By Jayne Nelson and Dave Golder.
Roger Rabbit Who Framed Roger Rabbit
He’s a nice guy, is Roger, but he’s not what you’d call “intelligent”. Earning peanuts being beaten up by a baby for a living, he flits from personal disaster to personal disaster, gets accused of murder and makes life hell for detective Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins). Plus have you heard his voice? It’s enough to strip wallpaper from walls! (No offence to voice artist Charles Fleischer, we hasten to add.)
His wife’s a bit of alright, though.
Easterific or horrific? Ha ha ha ha ha! Excuse us as we wipe tears of laughter from our eyes. Can you imagine the accident-prone, calamity-strewn, bad luck-magnet Roger Rabbit delivering Easter eggs? He’d try – he’d try sooooo hard – but there’s be nothing left but chocolatey goo at the end…
