The major significance of this film is its integration of pre-CGI 3D animation and live action without green screens. The end result may not hold up to today's standards but the same could be said for the original Star Wars.

As far back as I can clearly remember I have always been an ardent fan of vintage, "Looney Tune" cartoons from Warner Bros. Studios. And that is the #1 reason why I enjoyed "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" as much as I did. The sheer number of classic cartoon characters who made surprise cameo appearances in this film was absolutely amazing.

Set in Hollywood (circa 1947) and featuring an astoundingly delightful blend of non-stop live-action, mixed generously with lots of dazzling animation, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" pays loving homage to those good, old days of classic cartoons when cartoon characters seemed to possess even more star-power, and, yes, personality than did a lot of the human actors in that golden era of yesteryear.

With plenty of zany, fast-paced Comedy/Action and an impressive attention to period detail, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" (from 1988) won Oscars for "Best Visual Effects" - "Best Editing" - And a "Special Achievement Award" went to Richard Williams for animation direction and the creation of the new cartoon characters.

Pre-CGI animation. It has its good moments and its not-so-good moments. It does get a little carried away when it comes to the villain in the story.

Film Noir with cartoons; very high technique of merging humans into it. Especially when the only known one was the film with Fred Astire and another with Gene Kelly way back.

Old technique without the animation of current computers; skills both of actors and the creative photographers and director.
Story was film noir at the best.

Four 1/2 frames for wonderfulness on rating scale of must view

A fairly dark movie, great to watch with older kids. A great combination of live action and animation.

You've got to be in the mood for silly slap-stick, but there are some good sight gags that stay with you.

Set in Hollywood (circa 1947), and featuring an astoundingly delightful blend of dizzy, non-stop live-action, mixed generously with lots of dazzling animation, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" pays loving homage to those good, old days of classic cartoons when cartoon characters sometimes seemed to have more star-power and, yes, personality than did a lot of human actors in that golden era of yesteryear.

Yes. This incredibly innovative and vastly entertaining film is sure to please cartoon fans of all ages. The sheer number of familiar cartoon characters who make surprise, cameo appearances in this film is absolutely amazing.

With plenty of zany, fast-paced, comedy-action and an impressive attention to period detail, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" (which was released in 1988) won Oscars for "Best Visual Effects" - "Best Editing" - And a "Special Achievement Award" went to Richard Williams for animation direction and creation of the cartoon characters.
