Continuity mistake: Check out the style of Eddie's shoes when he's flat on the floor of Droopy's elevator as it's going up. Notice how he's got a different pair on his feet minutes later while gazing down at Judge Doom's gun in the back alley. (01:11:30 - 01:14:15)

Continuity mistake: Before Eddie drives his Plymouth into Toon Town, he breaks out Yosemite Sam's gun for the occasion and loads it with the animated bullets. The gun starts off in his right hand. But by the following shot when he gets ready to take a swig of Wild Turkey, it has instantly switched over to the other. (01:09:05)

Continuity mistake: While Valiant is driving through Toon Town, there's no continuity between what he sees ahead, and what is seen in the car's rear window seconds later.

Continuity mistake: After Eddie has crashed in Toon Town he gets out of his car and casts no shadow, and looks as if he's floating. Later on he does cast shadows. (01:10:45 - 01:13:30)

Continuity mistake: When Eddie crashes his car in Toon Town, from the inside we see that there's nothing in front of the car, but when the angle changes we can see a huge mess around with lots of people surrounding the car. (01:10:35 - 01:13:30)

Continuity mistake: After the alleyway scene, the cab jumps on a bridge. The first angle shows that there are no cars next to the woman with the pram, but half a second later, when the angle changes, there's a grey blue car behind. (00:59:35)

Continuity mistake: When the weasels make their appearance at Mr. Acme's crime scene their car knocks some boxes off. From one angle they are all scattered next to the front bumper, but when the angle changes they're gone and have moved several feet to the right. (00:31:55)

Continuity mistake: Roger and Jessica are safe when the spray-machine breaks the brick wall. It then goes through the other side staying on the left side and moving far away from the debris. Angle on Valiant, and when back to the wall the machine has suddenly moved several feet to the right and is crossing the wall again.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Valiant leaves Maroon's office, he goes outside and closes the door behind him all the way. Then a cartoon character passes him. Notice the character opens the door by pushing on it instead of turning the knob? I thought Valiant closed it all the way. (00:08:45)

Joe Campbell

Factual error: In the bar scene where Judge Doom is looking for Roger, there is a pinball machine that can be seen on the right side of the stairs as Roger and Eddie are running out of the bar. Electromagnetic pinball machines of this design were not around at the time of this film's setting. The pinball machine is a Gottlieb Hurdy Gurdy (1966) model.

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.

Question: I read that Doom hates Toons and that's why he wants to destroy ToonTown, but why would he hate Toons if he's one himself? Is this like Blade that hates vampires when he's one himself?

Answer: There's really a lot of possible reasons he hates other toons. There's a whole Roger Rabbit book and comic book series that explain Doom's background more. In the film, he's greedy and wants to destroy Toon Town to build the freeway to make more money. In human disguise he's also seen as merciless and is just punishing toons to maintain law and order, etc. Although that's just an excuse to kill toons as well. However, not explained in the film; as a toon he was cast as the antagonist in cartoon films until an accident one day left him thinking he was an actual villain (as opposed to just an actor playing one). That's when he began his life of crime, including killing Teddy Valiant. So his hatred of toons is more about him being evil and not a personal vendetta against them, like Blade's motives.
