Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Who Framed Roger Rabbit trivia picture Video

Trivia: When the taxi Jessica and Eddie are in hits the lamppost, she spins around and her dress shifts position. For a couple of frames on the laserdisc version her underwear vanishes, or at least it appears to. Opinion is divided as to whether it's a deliberate move by the animators or just an error in colouring. (https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/who-stripped-jessica-rabbit/). (00:18:15)

Trivia: When the filmmakers sought permission to use the Looney Tunes characters in the film, Warner Brothers only agreed on the condition that Bugs Bunny receive equal screen time with Mickey Mouse.

Trivia: Ever wonder what all that technical jargon that Judge Doom rattles off about his "Dip" was all about? The Dip, which he tells Eddie is a mixture he has made out of acetone, benzene, and turpentine, is the only way to kill a toon. Why? Because these are essentially the three main ingredients in "Paint Thinner" - which he uses to literally remove a toon's paint, thereby removing their existence. (00:33:20)

Trivia: The film's credits run for nearly ten minutes. At the time of its release, Who Framed Roger Rabbit held the record for having the longest end credits sequence in cinema history. (01:37:05 - 01:43:30)

Trivia: After filming, Bob Hoskins had hallucinations, and his son became angry at him for not bringing any of his cartoon friends home.

Trivia: In early versions of the script, Judge Doom had a pet vulture and was the one who shot Bambi's mother.

Trivia: A nice subtle detail you might not notice right away - in almost every single scene, Doom's cloak is lightly billowing, as though it has a perpetual breeze running through it. Not only is this a cute nod to the classic cliche of the "billowing cloak" many villains have in comics and cartoons, but it's also a very subtle "hint" that something's not quite right about him.

Trivia: The title has no question mark at the end, because according to director Robert Zemeckis, there's an old superstition that films with a question mark in the title do badly at the box office.

Trivia: In a bit of irony, Bob Hoskin's live-action character Eddie Valiant had to be animated in a few quick shots during the car-chase with the weasels and Bennie the cab, due to the high-speeds and/or chaotic movement, which would have been too dangerous (or too impractical) to do with Bob Hoskins or a stunt-double. These shots (which actually look fairly creepy, due to Valiant's animated form falling into "uncanny valley") are most easily seen by going frame-by-frame in certain quick shots.

Trivia: The cartoon oven in the kitchen during the first scene of the movie shows the name Hotternell. Which if you say it out loud reads like "hotter then hell".

More quotes from Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Question: I read that Doom hates Toons and that's why he wants to destroy ToonTown, but why would he hate Toons if he's one himself? Is this like Blade that hates vampires when he's one himself?

Answer: There's really a lot of possible reasons he hates other toons. There's a whole Roger Rabbit book and comic book series that explain Doom's background more. In the film, he's greedy and wants to destroy Toon Town to build the freeway to make more money. In human disguise he's also seen as merciless and is just punishing toons to maintain law and order, etc. Although that's just an excuse to kill toons as well. However, not explained in the film; as a toon he was cast as the antagonist in cartoon films until an accident one day left him thinking he was an actual villain (as opposed to just an actor playing one). That's when he began his life of crime, including killing Teddy Valiant. So his hatred of toons is more about him being evil and not a personal vendetta against them, like Blade's motives.
