Animated films weren't so much a rage during the 1980's, and aside from Disney re-releasing their golden age classic, they weren't doing the business at the box office... That is until Roger Rabbit took a bow in 1988. 
It's a unique twist on Sam Spade style detective movies of the 1940's and 50's, with "Toontown" doubling for Hollywood and animated performers doubling for the rich and famous of yesteryear.
Roger Rabbit is one of the stars of Toontown and he's framed for the murder of his studio's owner, he seeks the help of embittered, toon-hating detective Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) to solve the crime he's innocent of.
The Oscar-winning special effects are still very impressive three decades later and it's a genuine classic of mixed-media movies. Quite possibly the best of its kind.
