Jessica Rabbit Biography

Jessica Rabbit is the voluptuous femme fatale in the 1988 feature film Who Framed Roger Rabbit? The popular comedy, a loose-limbed mix of live action and animation, was based loosely on Gary Wolf’s 1981 book Who Censored Roger Rabbit?

Jessica Rabbit is the absurdly sexy wife of hapless hero Roger Rabbit, and she’s a constant temptation to human detective Eddie Valiant. With mock innocence and more curves than Daytona, she delivers the immortal line: “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way.” Jessica Rabbit also added spice to later Roger Rabbit cartoons, playing nurses and the like.
