Roger Rabbit auditioning to be in Tiny Toon Adventures

Roger Rabbit is an anthropomorphic rabbit in the Gary Wolf novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? and its 1988 live-action/animated Disney/Spielberg movie adaptation, Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He made two appearances in Tiny Toon Adventures, in the episodes "New Character Day" and "Buster and Babs Go Hawaiian".

Appearances

New Character Day

Roger makes a cameo in the opening wraparound of the episode "New Character Day" when he performs in front of Buster and Babs to be a new character in Tiny Toon Adventures, but he was rejected.

Buster and Babs Go Hawaiian

Roger makes his second cameo appearance in the episode "Buster and Babs Go Hawaiian". When he and his wife Jessica Rabbit appeared at the Warner Bros. Studio and were greeted by Ralph the Guard, Roger pulled Ralph's tie and pushed him on the ground.

Trivia

  • Three things were different about Roger's appearances:
    • In "New Character Day", he has darker fur, wears a yellow t-shirt and dark pants instead of the red overalls, and wears pink gloves instead of yellow ones.
    • In "Buster and Babs Go Hawaiian", his glove was light grey instead of yellow.
    • In both cameos, he was voiced by Steven Spielberg and Frank Welker, rather than Charles Fleischer.
  • Besides Roger's two cameo appearances, numerous references to Roger Rabbit have been made on Tiny Toon Adventures;
  • In the episode "The Looney Beginning", one of Babs' first impressions is Jessica Rabbit, Roger's wife. Later in the episode, as Buster and Babs escape from the garbage can, Buster says, "Roger, Rabbit!" and Babs says, "You've got the wrong bunny."
  • Drooley Davey from "The Wide World of Elmyra" segment of the same name closely resembles Roger's partner, Baby Herman, and even acts in a similar way; their characters act like actual babies, but the actors really have gruff voices.
  • In the "Looniversity Daze" segment "The Learning Principal", after Buster finds out that The Great and Powerful Principal of Looniversity is really a machine controlled by Bugs Bunny, Bugs tells him, "Eh, you were expecting, maybe, Roger Rabbit?"
  • The episode "Who Bopped Bugs Bunny?" is a parody of the film.
  • In the "Pledge Week" segment "It's All Relatives", one of Babs' impressions is Roger Rabbit.
  • In "Thirteensomething", Babs does an impression of Jessica Rabbit. Buster and Plucky later do an impression of the same character just to mock Babs.
  • In How I Spent My Vacation, Babs does an impression of Jessica Rabbit during her and Buster's visit to the Delta Burke.
