EP. 276 — Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Amy & Paul get animated and take a trip down to Toontown in 1988’s Who Framed Roger Rabbit! They’ll analyze how the toons represented the lower class, discuss how the portrayal of Jessica Rabbit helped Disney get out of a rut, and agree that having Roger Rabbit’s voice actor on set brought out the best in star Bob Hoskins. Plus: Bill Murray regrets missing the phone call that would’ve landed him the role of detective Eddie Valiant.
