Episode Info:

By a listener's suggestion, Laci and Matt discuss 1988's animated/live-action/neo-noir PG-rated sex comedy Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The whole gamut of topics is covered, including:

1) Roger Rabbit's star power (Is Roger Rabbit supposed to be as famous and popular within the reality of the film as Bugs Bunny was in our reality? And if so, how popular was Bugs himself within the Roger-verse?)

2) Kids' ability to just watch movies and not need to have everything explained to them

3) Animators don't get the credit they deserve

4) The bizarre cultural artifact that is Cool World and animated movies that look like kids' movies but are actually aimed at adults

5) Matt has a controversial take on how great a movie this is

All that and much more! 

Also, this video essay by Patrick (H) Willems is mentioned in the episode, and is highly recommended: https://youtu.be/JKe8qCzPdkI
