Years before Bob Hoskins, Bob Zemeckis, and company became synonymous with Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Disney first tried to bring the adaptation of the Gary K. Wolf novel to the big screen. In the early ‚Äė80s Disney developed some test footage of Roger Rabbit, casting a pre-Pee-Wee Paul Reubens as the voice of the titular Rabbit and making Jessica Rabbit less of a sexpot and more of a cutting bitch. That footage aired in 1983 on a Disney Channel show called Disney Studio Showcase, but wasn‚Äôt really available until recently, when Thief Archive unearthed that original airing and plopped it down on YouTube.
