Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Continuity mistake: When Judge Doom is about to dunk the squeaky shoe into the Dip, it seems to stick itself in for him, even though it looks rather scared. (00:33:35)

Factual error: When Eddie throws Roger into the bar's storeroom (after Roger was breaking plates on his head), there's a Lucky Strike ad poster with the slogan "Be Happy, Go Lucky." However, the Be Happy, Go Lucky ad campaign didn't start until after 1948 when BDO took over advertising, and the film is set in 1947.

Continuity mistake: When Roger goes to the Acme warehouse, he brings the gold-plated gun that was in Eddie's car after Eddie took it from RK Maroon. This is a real (not-animated) gun, and when Roger is talking to Benny before going into the warehouse, he's holding a real (non-animated) gun. After Roger bursts through the drain, the gold gun he's holding is animated. (01:21:25)

Revealing mistake: Eddie heads into Toontown with an oversized animated gun. As he lurks into an alley, his gun is a plastic prop. During filming, Hoskins would carry the prop gun and the animated gun would be superimposed over it, but the animation wasn't applied to the gun in the alley. (01:13:50)

Continuity mistake: When we're first introduce to Roger, the table on the left disappears between shots, and the pillow he rests on keeps moving closer to/away from the door randomly. (00:01:00)

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)
