Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Who Framed Roger Rabbit mistake picture

Factual error: When Judge Doom is at the window of R.K. Maroon's office firing his gun at Eddie, a photo of R.K. beside the armchair takes a direct hit, but only the glass frame gets shattered. Unless it was bulletproof, the picture should have been pierced right through. (01:07:10)


Revealing mistake: During the Toon Patrol chase, before the cab enters the alleyway there's a wide shot of the cab making a fast turn. Valiant has his head down, with his hat covering his face and his body totally motionless, opposite to what he looks like in the close-ups where he is grabbing the steering wheel, his head up and controlling the car, thus revealing that the actor was replaced by a dummy in some of the shots. (00:58:40)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when the spray-machine breaks the brick wall with the word 'Keep Clear' painted on it, the first 'E' and the 'A' get destroyed, but appear rebuilt a second later.

Continuity mistake: When Doom writes on the bar's blackboard "Rabbit Dip" the look of the text keeps changing all the time: sometimes it's neat, others it's fuzzy, and others some letters are missing. (00:52:10 - 00:53:10)

Continuity mistake: When Eddie hitches a ride on the back of the Streetcar, only its rear power-arm is attached to the overhead cable. Later when Eddie jumps off and says "Thanks for the cigarettes", it has both of its power-arms raised. (00:10:10)

Continuity mistake: In the scene after Valiant gets rejected by the trolley operator, notice as the trolley operator is closing the door, Valiant starts to fold the check. But in the next shot, he starts folding it again the same way. (00:09:35)

Joe Campbell

Other mistake: When Eddie Valiant gets thrown out of the Ink and Paint Club, he is already starting to go through the air as the gorilla moves his hands to throw him. (00:21:20)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Hoskins is washing his clothes and hiding Roger notice that the weasel talking is holding a gun. Hoskins puts a bar of soap in his mouth and the gun disappears. Then when he comes back to Hoskins the gun reappears. (00:42:15)

Joe Campbell

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the weasels are in Eddie's office, when the other four weasels see their leader falling down the stairs, Stupid (the fat weasel) closes the middle drawer on the filing cabinet. In the next shot the drawer is open. (00:42:20)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the gorilla is throwing Hoskins out of the club notice he is facing forward but when he lands in the trash he lands on his back. (00:21:20)

Joe Campbell

Continuity mistake: At Valiant' office notice the bottle of whiskey on the table, right before he examines the pictures of Jessica and Acme, the bottle is about almost full. But in the next scene after he finds out that Roger is there he sits down and you hear him pour himself a drink. In the next shot the bottle is almost empty and he is holding a glass that only holds about a mouthful of whiskey. How could he pour that little amount of whiskey and lose that much? (00:36:00)

Joe Campbell

Continuity mistake: In the scene at Valiant' office, Roger starts reading the letter but when he jumps off the bed in front of Valiant, the letter disappears. (00:38:35)

Joe Campbell

Continuity mistake: Mr. Maroon talks Valiant into working for him, he has his head tilted sideways. A brief back shot shows the head straight, but the immediate front angle shows it tilted again. (00:06:55)

Continuity mistake: When Eddie is on Maroon's office pouring himself some bourbon, Dumbo shows up and scares Eddie, who throws himself on the ground. The camera then shows him and his empty glass, and the ground is dry. Where did the bourbon go? (00:08:00)

Continuity mistake: When Eddy is fighting Judge Doom, Eddy is holding a giant cartoon magnet. He then attracts Judge Doom's sword and when Eddy drops the magnet it is attracted to a steel drum. If you look at the bottom of the drum you can see two strings on the bottom of the drum as it moves towards Bob Hoskins. (01:27:10)

Other mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when Roger is begging the director to give him another chance and keeps grabbing the bottom of the director's jacket that is in the director's hand, at one point the bottom of the jacket leaps into Roger's hand before he actually grabs it. (00:05:05)

Deliberate mistake: Before Eddie turns on the band machine in the factory, we see Smart Guy holding a real gun. Three shots later, when the weasel is backing away in surprise, he is holding a toon gun, which later switches back to a real gun. (01:23:30)

Revealing mistake: When Eddie sits on the bench and the hippo sits down, you can see Eddie bounce off the bench before the bench even moves. (00:09:10)


Continuity mistake: Near the end in the Acme Factory, the weasels tunnel through the wall and say "Toontown is on the other side of the world, boss". Understandable because of the portal link between the two "dimensions". But while the wall they're tunneling through seems to only have about ten layers of bricks, when the Red Car crashes through it, it alternates between one layer of bricks to three and back and forth. (01:18:00 - 01:32:30)

Revealing mistake: When Roger takes a shot of bourbon and blows his top, it causes most of the glass objects in R.K. Maroon's office to bust into pieces. In some instances you can see an explosive charge breaking the glass - like the giant angel statue at the center of R.K.'s trophy collection. (00:24:00)


Roger Rabbit: No! Not my Jessica! Not pattycake! It can't be! It just can't be! Jessica's my wife! It's absolutely impossible! Jessica's the love of my life. The apple of my eye. The cream in my coffee.
Eddie Valiant: Well you better start drinking it black, Acme's taking the cream now.

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)
