Book Synopsis

“Who’d want to kill a dumb cartoon bunny?”
That’s what Eddie Valiant wants to know. He’s the toughest private eye in Los Angeles, and he’ll handle anything – if you’re human. If you’re a Toon, that’s another story.
Eddie doesn’t like Toons – those cartoon characters who live side-by-side with humans. Not the way they look, and especially not the way they talk: word-filled balloons come out of their mouths and then disintegrate, leaving dust all over his rug.
Eddie will work for a Toon if his cash supply is low enough. So he reluctantly agrees when Roger Rabbit, a Toon who plays straight man (or should that be straight rabbit) in the Baby Herman cartoon series, asks him to find out who’s been trying – unsuccessfully – to buy his contract from the DeGreasy Brothers syndicate.
Then Rocco DeGreasy is murdered – and Roger is the prime suspect! The rabbit is also, as Eddie soon discovers, very, very dead.
Who censored Roger Rabbit? And who shot Rocco DeGreasy? Was it Roger, or was it Rocco’s hot-cha-cha girlfriend, Jessica Rabbit? Why had Jessica – a pretty steamy number for a Toon – ever married a dopey bunny in the first place? And why does everybody want Roger’s battered old teakettle?
As Eddie combs L.A. from the executive suites of the DeGreasy Brothers to Sid Sleaze’s porno comic studio, he uncovers art thefts, blackmail plots….and the cagiest killer he’s ever faced.
In Who Censored Roger Rabbit?, author Gary K. Wolf has created a wonderfully skewed – and totally believable – world compounded of equal parts Raymond Chandler, Lewis Carroll, and Warner Brothers. This riotously surreal spoof of the hard-boiled detective novel is packed with action and laughs. From first page to last, Who Censored Roger Rabbit? is shear delight.
Celebrated author Gary K. Wolf’s cult classic and highly praised novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? is the basis for the blockbuster Walt Disney/Steven Spielberg Academy Award winning film Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
The detective on the cover is portrayed by Mr. Wolf

  • Stick with the Movie

    Who Censored Roger Rabbit If you love the movie stick with the movie and do not read this book. After reading the book I understand why I did not know about it until 2015, when Gary K. Wolf was promoting his new book. If you are going to read this book, forget everything you remember from “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” because this is the original dark take on the story. Although it has a unique band of characters, it lacks the charm and excitement from the adapted movie. I had to force myself to complete the book and I only read it when I had nothing else to do. Gary Wolf had a great idea he just executed it poorly. The book is boring. Yes, Wolf stimulated the imagination with the cartoon theme, but it is not funny or amusing. There is no danger for Eddie Valiant as he investigates the case and Eddie’s motivation is flimsy, which his suspects remind the reader. The book follows Eddie Valiant in a world filled with Toons as he investigates a murder with Roger Rabbit is the prime suspect. The author layers the world with complex social structure, dark and adult subjects, but fails to make Eddie an interesting character. Which makes the story difficult to digest because the book follows from his perspective. My initial intention was to purchase all of Wolf’s Roger Rabbit books. Thank goodness I did not do it.

    You might think you know the Roger Rabbit story from seeing the movie... But you're a dumb bunny if you think you know the real tail — er, tale! Read all about it to see what was going on BEFORE Disney changed it. Hop to it!
