Encyclopedia > Jessica Rabbit

Jessica Rabbit is a fictional character created by author Gary Wolf for his humorous novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit?. The character was later used in the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, loosely based on Wolf's book. In the book version she was an amoral, up-and-coming star and former porn comic character, whom her estranged husband, comic strip star Roger Rabbit, obsessed over. She is re-imagined in the film as a sultry, but moral, cartoon singer at a Los Angeles supper club called The Ink and Paint Club. Here, she is one of several suspects in the framing of her husband, who is a famous cartoon star. She is voiced by actress Kathleen Turner. Executive producer Steven Spielberg's then-wife Amy Irving was cast to sing Peggy Lee's "Why Don't You Do Right" for Jessica's first scene in the movie.
