Continuity mistake: When Eddie Valiant is in his office, and he examines the newspaper photo of Jessica Rabbit and Marvin Acme, the picture doesn't match the photos shown to RK Maroon earlier in the film, and neither does the original of the photo he looks at next. The photo shows an earlier, less sultry version of Jessica, in a halter-neck dress. (Jessica wears a strapless dress throughout the film). The DVD's Toontown Confidential special feature mentions that Jessica's look changed during filming, and the scene where Eddie takes down the Jessica photos and looks at the holiday photos of him and his brother was re-shot to show the new Jessica. Looks like they either missed the newspaper scene or felt that the view was so brief it wasn't necessary to change it. (00:35:49)

About 7 seconds later you see the hippo sit on a bench causing the bench to collapse to one side and a man fly up.

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.
