Jon's Random Acts of Geekery is your five days a week destination for old-school geekery!
now, i'm pretty sure that last picture wasn't in the film at all.. maybe another removed scene i wonder.. but i don't know about a different ending...
Well, they couldn't use the original ending with all the Disney, Warner Bros. and other companies' characters... so I'd say they created that as an all-new picture for the book. Note that Eddie and his girlfriend are drawn, and not photos.
yes, It is possible.. There were meant to be more studio characters in the film (I think Casper at one point) but they never happpened.. I did notice all that image looked drawn, though it seams a bit odd to how the girl (not really his girlfriend but kinda) there since this book has removed any trace of her anyway. But then, in some scenes with Benny, Bob Hoskins was replaced with a cartoon version for some reasons.. well.. not a Toon version, but he is drawn, not photoed. Anyway, it is a good mix to get the style right.. i didn't think companys like this normally had enought money for that kind of job ^_^
Well, if the movie were being made today, a CGI Bob Hoskins would've been used, as opposed to a hand-drawn or rotoscoped one, I'd imagine.The Harvey Jack-In-The-Box did appear in the final scene, as I recall... and I remember a scene with Betty Boop, too. I think they'd hoped to have Popeye in it, but I guess King Features wanted more than they were willing to pay. There were probably a number of public-domain characters who apppeared in the final scene, too.
Betty Boop had a very famous bit (as with most characters, voiced by her Real VA, in this cause, for the first time in a while), I'm not sure about Jack-in-the-box though.. Felix was one of the characters they didn't get the rights to use BUT he still appeared a couple of times in the background. I believed they also wanted, but didn't get the okay to use Little Lulu, Popeye & Tom & Jerry. Oh and i don't think that many of the Characters at the end were Public domain, but alot of them are small time ones that appeared in one small LT or MM Cartoon years before ^_^; I wonder if someone has done a list of all the characters in that scene? that have for the final scene in 'The Muppets take Manhatten'
Oh, there IS a jack-in-the-box but i'm pretty sure it's not the Harvey toons one. You don't see it much at the very end but what is visable doesn't seam to be the same one.y'know, you could make a pretty good go at this film only using Mel Blanc voiced Characters ^_^
No, it's definitely Harvey's jack-in-the-box, Joker... as seen in the old Noveltoons cartoons (where the theatrical-originated characters began).
Ah, okay then ^_^ i've mostly just seen images of him on the comics.
