I rented Who Framed Roger Rabbit yesterday and I just finished watching it. It’s been a very long time since I saw the movie from beginning to end without any stops. I really liked the movie when I was much younger and after watching again just now I’m glad that I can still say the same.
Director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back To The Future series) certainly works his movie magic here. Who Framed Roger Rabbit still looks pretty good even after nearly 20 years since its release! Sometimes I really do wish that cartoons were living in the real world just like the rest of us. It would make life so much more fun and funny (and animated, too)!
Anyway, anybody who has seen the film knows that there’s a baby character that works with Roger Rabbit on the make-believe sound stages in the film. What I forgot was that this baby’s name is Herman! It was such a surprise to me when I heard “Baby Herman” for the first time at the beginning of the film. I simply forgot that that was the baby’s name, but once I heard it, I was like “Oh yeah! I remember!”
So yeah, this post is nothing but still images of Baby Herman. Click inside if you’re curious.
Anyway, I rented the two-disc collector’s edition of the film and the extras on the DVD are just extraordinary! It’s so interesting to see just how they put the movie together (and to also know that this was the last film to ever see major competing studios working together — the cartoon characters were from various studios including Warner Brothers and Disney). Anyway, the two-disc DVD does not disappoint!
