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 starpower and, yes, personality than did a lot of human actors in that golden era of yesteryear._____ 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.

movie was kind of scratched and would skip every now and than
