8 ‘80s Movies That Would Secretly Make Great TV Shows

8. Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Buena Vista

There are plenty of dramas out there and there are plenty of animated shows. However, there’s nothing quite like Who Framed Roger Rabbit with its animated / real life hybrid, which, if made into a TV show, would certainly stand out in the crowded TV landscape.

Even though it was released in something of a slump period for Disney, Who Framed Roger Rabbit has become a classic, and one that feels like it has so much more to offer. For example, the toon / real life tensions could act as a political allegory that in many ways would be extremely relevant today.

Serious notions and points aside, Roger Rabbit the show could simply be a hell of a lot of fun as a 30-minute serial comedy, with pop-culture references galore and more than enough detective shenanigans to keep people engaged throughout a season.
