Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Hondo and I have been having an offline discussion. Who are the crows?
Now here is the complete band pictured. As Jay asked - who are the crows ?
Jim Crow on double bass.
Glasses Crow behind the double bass.
Straw Hat Crow on drums
Who is the band pianist ? It doesn't appear to be either Preacher crow or Fat Crow. Is it just a generic crow drawn for this film, or if not, any thoughts on who it could be then?
Who Framed Roger Rabbit marks the first (and so far, the only) time in animation history that Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny have appeared on screen together.
Many additional characters were planned, or at least considered, for inclusion in the film but ultimately omitted due to legal issues and/or production limitations. Others managed to make it into the final film, but were cut out or replaced later on during production and development.
Numerous characters that did not make cameos in the film made a few on the menus of the Special Edition DVD.
Note: Most can be seen in the second disc.
(*) Denotes anachronisms; these characters (or, in the cases of characters such as Tinker Bell and Marvin the Martian, the animated versions of them that appear in the film) were created after 1947. But as screenplay writer Peter S. Seaman said, "The aim was entertainment, not animation history." It also has been argued that the characters may have "existed" in the Toon world before being "discovered" and featured in real productions.
We have had great Who Framed Roger Rabbit information and discussion, but now let me challenge you with three new images for you to name.
# 39 answered by David is Indeed Footrots flats that was released in 1986.
For # 40 the image is from a particular film poster but I will also accept a completely different answer for the film as also being correct if given.
For # 41 there is an Australian daybill around for the film the image featured appeared in.
For 40 and 41 I had originally thought someone would bring the answers back home here in no time at all, which would have been music to one's ears.
#41 is from a batch Disney shorts the Donald did during the war (Japanese plane) they all would have used the stock poster but no idea the title of the film.Donald was a very good actor, a little short tempered but the consummate professional, always on time and knew all his lines so got a lot of roles during the war, some propaganda some entertainment.
41. Home Defense...google is my friend.
Correct and Home Defense was released in 1943. I really don't care Ves if you or any other members use Google or anything else to come up with an answer. All I care about is receiving an answer.
Now for the remaining image # 40, a clue is that the image is also from Walt Disney.
# 40. This one seems to have proved too tough. I would have excepted Melody Time as well but the image was from Music Land.
Music Land ( 1955 ) was a compilation film which featured nine segments from earlier Walt Disney animated films, Make Mine Music (1946 ), Melody Time ( 1948 ) and Two For The Record ( 1954 ). The scene that was originally from Melody Time, and appeared in Music Land also, is from the Bumble Bee segment. The music was by Freddy Martin and his Orchestra and was a swing-jazz variation of Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight Of The Bumble Bee which was one of the many pieces considered for Fantasia.
If anyone is thinking that an RKO Australian daybill of Music Land would be desirable, forget about it as it certainly appears the film didn't obtain a release in Australia for whatever reason.
# 42. Name the film title.
# 43; Name the film title.
David's answer for 43 is correct. Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown ( And Don't Come Back! ) from 1980.
Jay's answer from 42 is also correct. It is indeed Donald In Mathmagical Land from 1959.
It is great to have a few keen animation fans on board here.
Coming up shortly two new images. One I would consider difficult but the other shouldn't present too much of a problem in answering.
Name the two film titles.
