Jessica Rabbit the alluring wife of Roger Rabbit in the animated film
Who Framed Roger Rabbit, who isn't bad, she was just drawn that way.
Jessica Rabbit is the voluptuous femme fatale in the 1988 feature
film Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, which was based loosely on Gary
Wolf's 1981 book Who Censored Roger Rabbit? Jessica is the
absurdly alluring wife of hapless hero Roger and a temptation to
detective Eddie Valiant. With mock innocence and more curves than
Daytona, she delivers the immortal line "I'm not bad, I'm just
drawn that way." Jessica also added spice to later Roger Rabbit
cartoons, playing nurses and the like.
Wolf wrote a 1991 sequel to his original book titled Who
P-p-plugged Roger Rabbit?... Actress Kathleen Turner supplied
Jessica's voice for the film, though she wasn't listed in the
film's original credits... Jessica's appearance is reminiscent of
the outlandish style of animator Tex Avery... Other animated
characters who make cameo appearances in the film include
Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse and Pinocchio.
In the film version, she was mistakenly blackmailed into playing
pattycake with Marvin Acme the day before he got murdered. She
only did to save Roger's career. Despite what it seems like
earlier in the movie Jessica really loves Roger as much as he
loves her. She also made cameo appearances in the cartoon shorts
Tummy Trouble, Roller Coaster Rabbit, and Trail Mix Up. She also
appeared frequently in the Roger Rabbit comic book series and she
has her own feature in most issues of Roger Rabbit's Toontown.
Jessica is considered by some to be the world's most alluring cartoon
character since Tex Avery's Red.
