“But now, there’s a new toon in town, and his name is Roger Rabbit.”

On September 13, 1988, the television special Roger Rabbit & the Secrets of Toon Town premiered on CBS. Hosted by Joanna Cassidy, the special took viewers behind the scenes of the hit combination live-action animation film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, featuring interviews with the actors behind the animated characters, the actors in the film, and those involved in creating the special effects, among others. The special also takes viewers behind the backstory of the film’s humble beginnings, and the history of the golden age of animation, ranging from the Walt Disney Studios to MGM Studios. The film also drew inspiration from early short films where animated characters were in the live-action world, and vice-versa. The special was directed by Les Mayfield.
