Continuity mistake: After Acme and Jessica's patty cake incident, we see Eddie taking a stack of pictures from R.K. Maroon as Roger repeatedly bashes his head on the desktop. Between shots, Eddie's left arm immediately moves to his side. (00:22:45)

Revealing mistake: When Eddie is carrying Roger into Dolores' secret room, keep an eye on the swinging light. At some points, Roger's image is translucent and the light can be seen right through his ears. (00:44:10)

Revealing mistake: Tire tracks from a previous take can be seen on the pavement as Benny the Cab skids to avoid a collision with the Red Car. (00:58:30)

Continuity mistake: In Acme's factory where a crime scene investigator finds the toon boxing glove mallet, his left hand releases itself from the handle between shots and several paintbrushes on the desk keep changing direction throughout the scene. (00:29:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Eddie pauses at Toon Town's entrance to load his gun, the Plymouth changes its position on the road relative to the double-yellow lines. (01:08:00 - 01:09:25)

Continuity mistake: When Roger is blowing his nose, Eddie stands in the background holding a stack of pictures with his left hand (offscreen), but in alternating shots the pictures shift hands (widescreen only). (00:22:55)

Continuity mistake: When Dolores is informing Eddie that Cloverleaf wants to get their hands on Toon Town, her head changes position between shots. At first she's looking in Eddie's direction, but then suddenly she's got her eyes on the new Cloverleaf billboard. (00:49:05)

Continuity mistake: After Eddie overturns the drum of dip and flees with Roger, a patron on Doom's left side falls on his back twice in successive shots. (00:57:00)

ryguy_1983

Continuity mistake: After Jessica's Ink & Paint Club performance, the audience gives her a round of applause. As soon as Marvin Acme stops clapping his hands, the shot changes - but now he's seen clapping again all of a sudden. (00:20:25)

Continuity mistake: When Eddie unfastens his suspenders, the glass he placed on the newspaper changes its position between shots. (00:36:05)

Revealing mistake: As soon as Eddie walks into the Ink & Paint Club to see Donald and Daffy on stage, a shadow of one penguin's drink tray is cast on the wall near stage left. However, the penguin's shadow isn't animated into this shot. Instead what we can see is a shadow of the pole, which was used by puppeteers to carry the tray around the club before any animation took place. (00:15:00)

Audio problem: As Eddie walks into the bar with Roger stuffed into his coat, you can hear somebody shooting pool. But only two seconds later Eddie walks past the pool table and, here, we can see one of the patrons actually passed out and laying down on top of it. It would be impossible to shoot pool under those circumstances, which means the pool ball noises were dubbed over. (00:43:20)

Continuity mistake: When R.K. Maroon is in his office expecting a visit from Eddie, he takes a pistol and slides it about halfway into his pocket. But between shots, the pistol slides all the way in. (01:05:00)

Revealing mistake: In the shot where Roger looks out of Eddie's apartment window to see the weasels approaching, you can see how their animations overlap the window sill as they cross the street. (00:40:20)

ryguy_1983

Continuity mistake: After Eddie questions what happened with Earl, his friend with a notepad writes "Laid off." But he grips the pad in a different manner between shots. Note the position of his index finger when he shows Eddie the message. (00:11:35)

Audio problem: When the Toon Patrol shows up at Eddie's door in search of Roger, they start knocking and the door shakes in response, but sometimes no sound can be heard to correspond with the door's movement as they knock. (00:40:45)

Audio problem: The first thing we can hear as Eddie walks upstairs into the bar is a rack of pool balls being broken. But two seconds later he greets his buddy Harry, and at this point we can see how all of the balls have settled and a player is lined up and prepared to take his shot at the corner pocket. It takes more than two seconds for a rack of pool balls to settle. (00:11:20)

ryguy_1983

Audio problem: When one of the bar patrons talks about Earl's two week notice, he says "Put the poor guy on two weeks' notice," but at the point where he says "guy" his lips are forming an altogether different word. (00:11:40)

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)
