Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Walt Disney Productions purchased the film rights to Gary K. Wolf‘s novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? shortly after the book’s publication in 1981, and Disney spent many years trying to bring Who Framed Roger Rabbit to the screen.
In the early 1980’s, Disney developed test footage with animation director Darrell Van Citters with Paul Reubens voicing Roger Rabbit, Peter Renaday and Mike Gabriel as Eddie Valiant, and Russi Taylor as Jessica Rabbit. This was right around the time that Reubens was getting ready to reveal his Pee-Wee Herman persona to the world.
The early test footage was broadcast once on a 1983 Disney Channel show called Disney Studio Showcase, and never seen from again — until now. Thief Archive (via CartoonBrew) has found the footage of the television airing of these early animation tests. Watch the Paul Reubens Roger Rabbit test footage now, embedded after the jump.

I remember when the Star Tours ride first opened in 1987 (am I old?) they had a ABC Magical World of Disney special which focused on the attraction. And when I finally got to ride the attraction, it was just as magical as I had imagined, taking us on a tour of a galaxy far far away at the same time as the climactic moments of the Star Wars. While many of the lands, characters and worlds we saw on the tour were familiar from the original trilogy, one big Disneyland addition was a RX-Series pilot droid named Rex, voiced by Comedian Paul Reubens (aka Pee Wee Herman).
Rex was annoying but lovable, characteristics of George Lucas post-Empire galaxy. When Star Tours was recently revamped, Rex was removed as the pilot and replaced by C-3PO (the new tour was originally supposed to be guided by an AC-38 droid named Ace, but George Lucas came up with a story reason to put C-3PO at the helm). Rex couldn’t be the droid pilot of the new Star Tours because the adventure is set decades earlier during the prequel story era. While in the waiting queue, you can see an RX-24 unit sitting outside a crate was marked as defective.
But it looks like the annoying yet lovable Rex might be returning to the Star Wars universe in the Star Wars Rebels television series. Hit the jump to read about Rex Star Wars Rebels details.
