Who Framed Roger Rabbit—Disney+
P-P-P-Please enjoy this 1988 cult classic, which follows hapless private eye Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) as he investigates a possible affair involving Jessica Rabbit (voiced by Kathleen Turner)—the wife of Maroon Cartoon Studios’ biggest star, Roger Rabbit (voiced by Charles Fleischer). The seemingly simple case goes awry when Marvin Acme (Stubby Kaye), the owner of Toontown and Jessica’s presumed paramour, is found murdered—and Roger is pegged as the culprit!
Disney’s Winnie the Pooh—Disney+
Oh bother! The 2011 animated feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studios highlights a very busy day for Winnie the Pooh (voiced by Jim Cummings) and his Hundred Acre Wood pals: Rabbit (voiced by Tom Kenny), Eeyore (voiced by Bud Luckey), Owl (voiced by Craig Ferguson), and Christopher Robin (voiced by Jack Boulter). As the friends search for Eeyore’s missing tail with a pot of honey on the line, Owl mistakenly reports that it’s Christopher Robin that’s missing.
Ice Age: The Great Egg-Scapade—Disney+
Sid (voiced by John Leguizamo) launches an egg-sitting business, prompting Ethel (voiced by Taraji P. Henson) to enlist his services for her soon-to-hatch egg.

When a mysterious case baffles Zootopia’s authorities, Judy jumps at the chance to solve it; however, a sly fox named Nick Wilde (voiced by Jason Bateman) makes her mission a little bit harder.
