Disney's frenetic live-action/animated comedy "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" was the second-highest-grossing film of 1988, earning more than $156 million. The comedy won three Academy Awards and transformed its lead, British actor Bob Hoskins, into a bona fide Hollywood star. But more importantly, the film marked the first time beloved animated characters from rival studios - such as Disney's Mickey Mouse and Warner Bros.' Bugs Bunny - appeared together. The traditionally hand-drawn animated film heralded a renewed appreciation of the Golden Age of animation and spawned the modern-era of animation, especially at Disney.

A year after announcing a decade-long schedule of new rides and attractions at Disneyland, officials at the nation's first theme park have reshuffled the projects and axed plans for a fantasy version of famed Hollywood Boulevard. The changes include an earlier debut for a ride featuring the Roger Rabbit movie character, dropping plans for a Dick Tracy attraction, delaying a planned renovation of Tomorrowland by a year and using the character Indiana Jones as a ride instead of a stage show.
