Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Continuity mistake: At the very end of the movie, when the cartoon characters start singing "Smile Darn Ya Smile" together, Just before the scene changes, the cartoon background is gone. When the cartoon characters lets Eddie, Roger and Jessica go to Toontown, the background reappears.

Suggested correction: No, the background is always there. When Eddie et al. appear the angle is shot from behind the cartoons. Then the humans start to walk and the camera is focused on the ground, then rises and the background is there. No mistake.

Revealing mistake: When the weasels are at Eddie's apartment and Roger is handcuffed to Eddie, Roger runs under the bed and drags Eddie on the floor. As he pulls him you can clearly see a board with wheels under Eddie that is pulling him under the bed. (00:38:50)

Question: When Eddie is fighting Doom at the end he spots a box with a singing sword in it. He whips it out and sure enough, the sword starts singing. My question is, why would there even be a singing sword? Is this a reference to something else?

Carl Missouri

Answer: Valiant also shares his name with Arthurian comic strip hero Prince Valiant, who wields a singing sword, Flamberge.

Chosen answer: One of the legends of Excalibur says that the sword sang when Arthur pulled it from the stone. Bugs Bunny went on a quest for the singing sword in a cartoon once, so there's historical AND cartoon precedence for singing swords.

Captain Defenestrator

Answer: This is also a gag factory where such things like that would be made for cartoons.

Rob245

Answer: It's likely just meant to be a nonsensical gag. Notice how Eddie and Doom both give the sword a questionable look, like they're also confused as to why such a thing even exists.
