Well, interesting, although to be accurate, all of the Mon-stars should have been made to be 7' 6" and other than Jordan, the Tune Squad should have all been 5' 1"... although doing that the Tune Squad would play horribly in the game, unless you really skewed the abilities of the players to favor the Tune Squad to compensate for the Mon-stars being able to block every shot by just standing there.

One of the greatest "old school" legacy sites still out there.... although, Warner seems to be the king of this.... you can get to a lot of old 90's layout pages for SI for example....

That mod is bad, and the guy who made it should feel bad.

It's farking creepy and not nostigila inducing at all.

I watched that whole thing hoping for Bill Murray.

Failure.

I love Space Jam and its soundtrack, unironically. If I had this game for the PC (gross) I'd probably get that mod.

I actually think he might be in it. At 3:23 he's inbounding to Foghorn.

gah, all i wanna do is forget that pile of ass movie.  one of the worst ever until i saw the Godzilla remake.

Space Jam is a terrible movie from the dark time when WB didn't know what the hell to do with the Looney Tunes characters. Even Bill Murray couldn't save that movie from sucking.

So why would I want to emulate it in any way?

I rank Space Jam below the not-Godzilla movie.

Fark Lola Bunny and everyone who decided she needed to exist.

Space Jam is arguably the greatest sports film of all time, alongside Chariots of Fire, Slap ShotRemember the Titans and Rocky. It's about time it got some commemoration, no matter how small.

I know the guy who created the visual design for Lola Bunny (not the character herself per se. Just the visual design). There was the proposal made from the animation department for the then-new character, but she looked more like a ten year old flat-chested boy (Bugs in no Pedobear!), and then this one guy in the WB Merchandising Design Dept. submits his own design for her and Ivan Reitman accepted it, much to the jealous seething ire of all the folks on the animation Department side.

Loads of inter-office and internet newsgroup forum drama ensues as to whom the OFFICIAL Lola design was really from, and it finally took a letter on official WB letterhead from Reitman's office that testified that my friend was the person who was the one who's design won.

And for those who may be curious, this is his rendition of Lola, drawn in his hand:

I saw that movie with a 103+ fever, in the theater.  Trippiest theater-going experience I've ever had.

turning lola from the stock unfleshed out girlfriend character into a unique personality unto herself is the one thing I've paid attention to about the new loonytunes cartoons. still not as good as babs tho.
 
2014-02-14 05:05:35 PM  
They didn't need a female bunny. Bugs was perfectly fine (and hilarious) cross-dressing when a female was needed.

"Toon", a term featured in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?", is presumably a contraction of "cartoon".

The "Tune Squad" is derived from:

Dammit, how did I excise this?!

The "Toon" P&P RPG predated Roger Rabbit by several years.

I humbly accept my corrections. I'm stupid. You're smart. I was wrong. You were right. You're the best. I'm the worst. You're very good-looking. I'm not attractive.

I laughed my ass off at the video. Perfect absurdity.

As is everything involved with space jam. I can't remember where I read it, but somewhere i read where someone wanted to describe the 90's.  The description is "space jam".

Yet the Roger Rabbit book on which the movie is based predates the RPG by three years.
