Who Framed Roger Rabbit (Netflix) I’ve been a fan of animation for as long as I can remember, and this film is the definitive celebration of classic animation. All of your favorite characters are on the screen together for the first (and, in all legal probability, only) time – Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Betty Boop, Woody Woodpecker and so much more. A send-up of 1940s film noir combined with amazing cartoon zaniness and wit, Who Framed Roger Rabbit is the story of the titular toon’s struggle to clear his name after being fingered for a murder. The great Robert Zemeckis was the perfect director for this effects-heavy movie. And the effects themselves are extraordinary. It’s hard to believe that the animation was all done by hand because the integration into the live-action scenes is so seamless.
