Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Who Framed Roger Rabbit mistake picture

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)

Joe Campbell

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)

Joe Campbell

Revealing mistake: When Judge Doom knocks Eddie off the Dip machine, note the Acme Curve Ball boxes in the background that appear to be written backwards, revealing a flipped shot. (01:26:30)

THGhost

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: When Daffy gets thrown into Donald's grand piano, a wire is visible on the upper left side of the screen - closing the lid on his beak. (00:15:40)

Visible crew/equipment: A crew member's hand is visible turning the steering wheel of Eddie's beat-up Plymouth when Roger skids it to a halt. (01:17:35)

ryguy_1983

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)

Visible crew/equipment: Set lights are visible on the ceiling for a few shots in the scene where Eddie and Baby Herman are discussing Marvin Acme's will. (00:34:30)

Continuity mistake: When Benny the Cab approaches a bridge where the woman is pushing her baby carriage, the sun casts shadows at wildly different angles in alternating shots. (00:59:30)

ryguy_1983

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)

ryguy_1983

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)

ryguy_1983

Revealing mistake: As Roger gets ready to take a drink of bourbon in R.K. Maroon's office you can see a moving shadow on the desktop - which is that of a mechanical arm used to hold the shot glass. (00:23:40)

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)

ryguy_1983

Visible crew/equipment: In one shot where Eddie leaps into a wall of pogo stick boxes at the Acme factory, a springboard used for the stunt is partially visible behind the red banana skin containers. (01:24:35)

ryguy_1983

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)

ryguy_1983

Revealing mistake: After being flattened by the steamroller, Judge Doom staggers over to the compressed air tank and reinflates himself. When his black hat pops off, strings can be seen pulling it up. (01:29:45)

ryguy_1983

Revealing mistake: When Benny the Cab jumps onto a bridge with Roger and Eddie, a red Ford De Luxe skids to avoid a collision. Notice how tire tracks from a previous take are visible on the pavement. (00:59:35)

R.K. Maroon: How much do you know about show business, Mr. Valiant?
Eddie Valiant: Only that there is no business like it, no business I know.
R.K. Maroon: Yeah. And there's no business more expensive. I'm 25 grand over budget on the latest Baby Herman cartoon. You've seen the rabbit blowing his lines. He can't keep his mind on his job. You know why?
Eddie Valiant: One too many refrigerators dropped on his head?
R.K. Maroon: Nah, he's a toon. You can drop anything you want on his head, he'll shake it off. But break his heart, goes to pieces just like you and me.

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)

More trivia for Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Question: Does "pattycake" also mean something sexual? We were obviously at first supposed to think Jessica and Acme had sex, but if they were, why would she say "pattycake" and why does Maroon say "You're not the first guy whose wife went pattycake on him"? Am I missing out on something?

MikeH

Chosen answer: According to the director, Pattycake is the toon equivalent to sex.
