14: “I’m Not Bad, I’m Just Drawn That Way” – Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Robert Zemeckis’ WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT (1988) effortlessly blended live action and animation in a cinematic experience never seen before (and rarely since). It was also a colossal hit for Touchstone Pictures (aka the Mouse House, Disney!) and managed to delight children, adults, classic cartoon fans and noir thriller aficionados — no small feat!

Your beloved WHEN WE WERE YOUNG podcast hosts originally saw this live action-animated-comedy-mystery hybrid blockbuster as little kids; now that we’re old enough to have a complicated appreciation of Jessica Rabbit’s heaving bosom, we decided to head back into Toontown to see if the groundbreaking flick still holds up today.

When We Were Young is a podcast devoted to the most beloved pop culture of our formative years (roughly 1980-2000). Join us for a look back to the past with a critical eye on how these movies, songs, TV shows and more hold up now.
