The blockbusting film "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," a highly innovative movie that combined stars such as Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd, Charles Fleischer, Stubby Kaye and Joanna Cassidy with the largest selection of animated personalities ever assembled in a film, debuts on The Disney Channel Friday at 7.
The movie, about a man, a woman and a rabbit caught in a triangle of mayhem and murder, will be repeated on June 6, 23 and 29.
Sunday on TBS at 10. Meryl Streep narrates "A Vanishing Wilderness," the latest World of Audubon Special. The show investigates the pristine coastal plain of Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the threat posed by an oil development plan. Encores on Monday, Saturday and June 11.
Sunday on Arts & Entertainment at 8. "A&E Premieres" holds the North American debut of the two-hour British drama "Tumbledown." This is the story of a lieutenant who was shot in the head in the final hours of the Falklands war, leaving him partially paralyzed, and how he has been treated since. It dramatizes the irony that dead soldiers are remembered fondly, while the injured remain an unpleasant reminder of the brutality of war.

Friday, CNN celebrates its 10th anniversary. The network will be busy as usual delivering the day's news as it happens and where it happens. There will be no gala on-air celebration from the world's first 24-hour TV news operation, which does have ample reason to take a few bows. Lois Hart and Dave Walker opened the first newscast amid prophesies of doom. Instead, Ted Turner's brainchild has become a video wire service with international reach and coverage.
Saturday on HBO at 10. Comedian George Carlin delivers his seventh solo special for the network, a 60-minute feature entitled "George Carlin -- Doin' It Again." This time he offers his candid views on life's most embarrassing and unmentionable situations -- or, as he puts it, "those little moments that seem to last forever." He also adds a few remarks about corporate America, prostitution, the use of forbidden words, feminism, organized religion, dogs, cancer, stupid people, things you never want to hear and the use of today's buzzwords. Encores: June 5, 8, 11, and 14.
