Continuity mistake: In Valiant' office notice the whiskey bottle to the right of Valiant. Then Roger is about to sit in his brother's chair. While Valiant is yelling at him, look right in front of him the whiskey bottle is there, but then when he sits down the bottle is back at its original spot. (00:39:15)

Audio problem: In Maroon's office, when he says to Valiant "I want you to get me a couple of pictures to wise up the Rabbit with," notice the next shot is of Maroon from the back of his head. Notice his mouth doesn't match the words he is saying. (00:06:30)

Continuity mistake: After Roger springs onscreen from an underground pipeline at the Acme Factory, a steel grate is thrust high into the air, falling right in front of Judge Doom (however the shot cuts away half a second before it's supposed to hit the floor). But two shots later that same grate is seen falling from a much higher elevation again. It should have been lying on the floor at this point. (01:21:10)

Revealing mistake: During the piano duel finale, Donald blasts a cannon at Daffy and the grand piano collapses - seemingly from the impact. But if you look closely there are actually ropes pulling the piano's legs from somewhere offstage. (00:17:05)

Revealing mistake: When Eddie and Roger are using Benny the Cab to run from the weasels, Eddie reverses gears and backs into the alley. It may be Benny the Cab's image onscreen, but a shadow on the ground actually reveals the go-cart which Eddie uses for the take. (00:58:40)

Visible crew/equipment: When Eddie grabs a newspaper from Baby Herman, you can briefly see the mechanical arm used to hold it - sticking out of the carriage for a split second. (00:35:00)

Revealing mistake: After Lena Hyena plants a kiss on Eddie, he tumbles down the street and lands face-first onto a solid white line. Pavement is animated into this shot, however a reflection of the stage floor is still visible. (01:13:20)

Revealing mistake: After Eddie tells Roger that his handcuff keys are missing, they leap over the bed as the Toon Patrol sirens approach. When Eddie lands on the floor, his bedsheets get disturbed by a large blast of air - most likely the backfire of a safety cushion that was hidden behind the desk to break his fall. (00:40:10)

Revealing mistake: At one point where Roger drags Eddie over to the electrical outlet spy hole in Dolores' secret room, Roger says "This will be a great place to hide." Both of them are handcuffed together in this shot, but Roger's shadow is not animated into his cuff. (00:44:20)

Revealing mistake: After Roger reads Marvin Acme's will out loud, all of the toons start jumping for joy. Meanwhile the music machine is still activated in the background, and its colorful flashing lights are being reflected on the ground near Betty Boop and Tweety at the front of the crowd. With all of the toons grouped together like they are, the machine's colorful lights should have been obscured, not reflected. (01:35:30)

Eddie Valiant: But this does.

More trivia for Who Framed Roger Rabbit

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.
