Robert Yaniz Jr. 2 / Who Framed Roger Rabbit (with Jeannine Yaniz)

Crooked Table Podcast

It's been a long while since Rob got the chance to take the reins of the Crooked Table Podcast (ever since the new format debuted in December 2018 with our Ace Ventura: Pet Detective episode). Now, with his birthday upon us, Rob — and returning guest Jeannine Yaniz — talk about one of his all-time favorite films, 1988's Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Director Robert Zemeckis's live-action/animated hybrid may be a technical feat that still holds up today, but it is also a formative film for our host. From childhood playthings to childlike inspirations, listen in to find out how the most inappropriate Disney film this side of Return to Oz made a tremendous impact on the birthday boy. Who Framed Roger Rabbit synopsis, courtesy of Amblin Entertainment: Director Robert Zemeckis’ feature follow-up to the original Back to the Future (1985), Who Framed Roger Rabbit continued the filmmaker’s startling blend of humor, imagination, invention and technical innovation to bring together a world where human beings and animated cartoon characters interacted in a comical romantic mystery adventure set in a Hollywood—and Toontown—of yore. Bob Hoskins stars as Eddie Valiant, a down-on-his-luck gumshoe with a painful past and a dislike of the lunacy of toons—thrust against his better instincts into a whodunnit with a harebrained hare, Roger Rabbit, a cuckolded cuckoo convicted of murdering gag magnate Marvin Acme. Eddie and Roger pair up, much to Eddie’s chagrin, to find Acme’s real murderer, only to uncover a cover-up that could bring ruination (all in the name of progress) to both Tinseltown and Toontown forever! Featuring lively performances by Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) and Joanna Cassidy, along with a gallery of toons both new and beloved—including cameos by no-less animated aristocracy than Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, Daffy Duck and many, many more from the Golden Age of animation, Who Framed Roger Rabbit is the kind of film that must be seen to be believed—and beloved.

Robert Yaniz Jr. / Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

Crooked Table Podcast

In Episode 90 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Robert Yaniz Jr. ushers in a new era of the show (check out episode 88 for more details on the updated premise). With the help of wife/frequent podcast guest Kai Yaniz, Rob looks back on the now-problematic 1994 Jim Carrey comedy Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. The film may not have aged particularly well (which Kai and Rob most definitely will get into), but nonetheless, Rob harbors a long-held affection for Carrey's brand of rubber-faced wackiness, complete with incessant catchphrases and pop culture references. In many ways, the film (along with Carrey's The Mask) has been a major influence on not only Rob's sense of humor but his perception of comedy in general. Read into that whatever you will.  So, as the Crooked Table Podcast takes on a more positive, subjective slant — thereby truly honoring "the world of film from a fresh angle" — there's perhaps no better place to start than with the man behind the show itself. Don't worry, future episodes will feature other guests who will share their thoughts on a film that has impacted them, but for now, let's ease into the Crooked Table Podcast 2.0 with a "soft reboot" centering on the host's selection of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Alrighty then, let's reinitiate the podcast launch sequence now. Want to appear on a future episode of the Crooked Table Podcast? Find out how over at crookedtable.com/guest!
