    If you don't recall...

    Last year, I created a petition to try to get Disney and Amblin/Dreamworks to put aside their differences so that Roger Rabbit and his co-stars (Jessica Rabbit, Baby Herman, Benny the Cab, the Weasels, etc.) can be able to appear in new Disney projects.

    As a lover of Roger Rabbit and Co., I have been very disappointed with not seeing new Roger Rabbit stuff and not seeing Roger in the Disney Theme Parks.

    As of today (4/23/2003), the current number of signatures is 1,485.

    The address for this petition is:

    I also strongly suggest that everyone write letters regarding Roger and the Disney/Amblin/Dreamworks feud.

    I also strongly suggest that everyone write letters regarding Roger and the Disney/Amblin/Dreamworks feud.


    Here's some addresses to write to:

    The Walt Disney Company
    500 South Buena Vista Street
    Burbank, CA 91521

    Steven Spielberg
    Amblin Entertainment
    100 Universal City Plaza
    Bungalow 477
    Universal City, CA 91608-1085

    Dreamworks SKG
    1000 Flower St.
    Glendale, CA 91201


    Also, here's some sample letters:

    For "Amblin Entertainment":

    Dear Steven Spielberg:

    I am a big fan of Roger Rabbit and have enjoyed the past collaborations between your company and Disney.
    I have been anticipating more from this team, but I have been disappointed for some time, as I have noticed that Roger Rabbit and his co-stars (Jessica Rabbit, Baby Herman, Benny the Cab, the Weasels, etc.) have been absent from recent Disney productions. I do not claim to understand the business aspects of such collaborations, but it seems to me that potential income is being lost.
    In rumor, I have heard that your company and Disney have been unable to come to working agreements in bringing Roger and his co-stars back into the Disney universe. I am afraid that Roger seems to have been fading into obscurity. This is truly a shame, since Roger is a great character with huge marketing potential.
    However, Roger and his co-stars still appear on Disney merchandise sometimes.
    The Roger Rabbit walk-around character hardly appears in the Disney theme parks anymore. I would like him to go back to being a regular character in the Disney parks for meet-and-greets, parades, shows, etc.
    It would be nice if Roger returned to appearing in the Disney on Ice shows as well.
    I wish he would appear in new Disney theme park attractions. It would be great if they built the Roger Rabbit's Hollywood area/attractions that were proposed for Walt Disney World's Disney-MGM Studios theme park years ago.
    Roger still gets a lot of attention and exposure in the overseas Disney parks, so I hope that this is a sign of future possibilities.
    I would also like to see Roger in more Disney movies and television shows, plus more Roger Rabbit feature films, cartoon shorts and maybe a Roger Rabbit TV show.
    If your company and Disney can agree on merchandising, why not expand the ability to agree?
    I hope that your company can settle your differences with Disney over the ownership and licensing of Roger Rabbit and Co. so that the public can see more of them in the future.

    Sincerely,
    (Your name here)
