Creating cartoon characters that interact with real people or having real people jump into animated landscapes has been a technique used for decades. Do you like these sorts of cartoons? Do you have a favourite?
It has to be the one you have a picture of: Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
It was a brilliant cartoon/live-action mix - really witty, and playing on cartoon stereotypes perfectly.
R.I.P. Bob Hoskins - he was great in it. In the days before actors were used to acting in the presence of tennis balls on sticks to represent their "co-stars" his performance set the bar high for those who followed.
Honourable mentions (guilty pleasures): Mary Poppins and Enchanted
'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?' is not my favourite semi-animated film, but I think it is best well done. When I was a kid, I loved Space Jam, but not so much now. I think Mary Poppins is probably my favourite.
Yes, I quite agree with Lindsay Law! I lovedWho Framed Roger Rabbit & Mary Poppins also.
My youngest daughter even called her rabbit Roger, my sister gave her, not long after we saw the movie. While I was at boarding school, the Mary Poppins author) Pamela L.Travers, (who was a friend of my grandmother) came to the school, so I could meet her, & signed 1 of her books, for my 2 sisters & myself & we still have them.(Sorry, that has nothing to do with the question!)
