"I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way."
- Jessica Rabbit, Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)

Jessica Rabbit may not be what you'd expect. This cartoon diva is not a rabbit at all. Rather, she is an animated woman, the wife of furry and long-eared comic strip character Roger Rabbit.

Though cast as a femme fatale - a mysterious and seductive woman - Jessica is devoted to Roger. She is willing to do anything to save him - first his career, and later he himself when he is framed for murder.

As a part of popular culture, Jessica Rabbit is a modern rendition of classic pin-up girls and detective movie dames. She is said to have been inspired by real-life actresses like Rita Hayworth and Lauren Bacall. Author Gary K. Wolf claims to have based Jessica on Tinker Bell, Marilyn Monroe, and the cartoon girlfriend of Droopy variously called Red Hot Riding Hood and Miss Vavoom.

She appeared in a number of Roger Rabbit short films and made a cameo appearance in the Disney film Aladdin and the King of Thieves.
