I have a theory.
Since "Roger Rabbit" is owned by more than one company, Disney was unable to produce an animated series starring the funny bunny.
Cue in "Bonkers D. Bobcat".
But all-in-all, maybe it was best there was no Roger Rabbit series, it could have killed the character's appeal with audiences sooner than expected. A blessing in disguise maybe?
Roger copyright Disney/Amblin
Bonkers copyright Disney
YEAH! I ALSO NOTICED ITS SIMILARITIES WITH ROGER RABBIT, EVEN ON ITS DESIGN, BUT I DON'T THINK THAT'S SO BAD, I JUST THINK DOUG WALKER EXAGERATED
Though come to think of it, bobcats have never had a very good reputation of being popular characters, have they? Bonkers, Bubsy... it's never gone well for them, sadly.
A toon and a cop...
MALCOLM & TAMARA: ROGER RABBIT
WALKER: I KNOW!! I KNOW!!
I love your style for these two.
I believe the reason why they couldn't do a Roger Rabbit series is because the Roger Rabbit movie had cartoon characters from other companies, such as Bugs Bunny. However, Bonkers' universe is similar to Roger Rabbit's because it is also populated with cartoon characters, just with Disney ones.
So, since Roger Rabbit is owned by Disney, I believe they could have made a Roger Rabbit series out of Bonkers but have all the other cartoon characters belong to Disney. That way, we could have seen Roger Rabbit working with Lucky Piquel in the show (or at least the first half of the show...).
By the way, isn't it a coincidence that Roger Rabbit wears red overalls, while Bonkers wears a green sweater? The coincidence lies within the fact that two OTHER characters wear red and green in a certain video game we all like to play....
They're really funny and really cute lol!
I think Bonkers and Roger are cartoon kindred spirits.lol
Very nice, btw.
I love these two characters but Bonks is cuter. I watched the sho all the time My parents woldnt let me see Roger Rabbit
Bonkers- He looks tasty.
I can't believe I never noticed the similarites between the two until this picture. ((wacks self on head with toon mallet)) Stupid, stupidhead me!
Great picture, by the way, very clean and professional. And the way the boys are sizing each other up- beautiful!
