Droopy/Roger Rabbit Conclusion

So ends the "Droopy tribute which morphed into a Roger Rabbit tribute".
The Droopy films, as I have said before, are just a glimpse into the mind of Tex Avery and the talented artists who worked with him. Hopefully, in the future we will finally hear that the other Avery films will be released on dvd.
In the medium of animation, there are no boundaries and Tex lived that fact to the fullest. It's a shame that he, in his later years, doubted his own work. His sad, final years in no way tarnish the hilarious body of work that he left behind. His films remain just as fresh and funny today as they were when they were made.

As for Roger Rabbit, it's a shame that his career was cut so short. The character clearly had the potential to revitalize the concept of the theatrical cartoon. It's a bit disheartening to know that the days are over when cartoons would accompany feature films. At least Roger gave the idea a really great try.

So, what's next at the Acme Factory? Well, I'll give you a hint. The next timeline will be of a character who just turned 75 years old last month. Stay tooned!

Well at least Disney is giving the theatrical short a try again with Goofy's "How to Hook Up Your Home Theatre".
Hope that cartoon sees a release.

Is the next tribute Donald Duck? That was my first guess.

Not quite. Donald is only 73 this year. :)
