Continuity mistake: When Jessica appears on stage, Eddie has Betty Boop standing next to him in all close-up shots, except for a wide shot of the public behind Jessica where Boop is missing.

Sacha

Factual error: The picture of Eddie and Teddy on the road with dad, supposedly taken in 1906, shows a Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey circus poster. In 1906, the Ringling Brothers circus and the Barnum & Bailey circus were two separate circuses playing in different parts of the country. They did not combine the two shows until 1919.

Revealing mistake: When the weasels are at Eddie's apartment and Roger is handcuffed to Eddie, Roger runs under the bed and drags Eddie on the floor. As he pulls him you can clearly see a board with wheels under Eddie that is pulling him under the bed.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the bar fight scene when Stupid knocks down Doom and some other guys, you can see Delores wielding a bat at the other end of the bar. In the next shot when Eddie kicks Psycho, Delores is suddenly behind the bar where Eddie is.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: Watch when Baby Herman confronts Eddie Valiant in the hallway at Valiant's office. The screen image may be of Herman, but the studio lights clearly cast the shadow of the puppet-machinery used to animate Herman's actual prop cigar in the baby carriage.

Visible crew/equipment: When Roger and Eddie get in a truck and there's no key, Roger hears the voice of Benny the Cab in the back of the truck. He then slides through a little window and his love letter to Jessica pops out of his pocket. A black glove can be seen pushing this letter through the window.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Eddie Valiant is in his office, and he examines the newspaper photo of Jessica Rabbit and Marvin Acme, the picture doesn't match the photos shown to RK Maroon earlier in the film, and neither does the original of the photo he looks at next. The photo shows an earlier, less sultry version of Jessica, in a halter-neck dress. (Jessica wears a strapless dress throughout the film). The DVD's Toontown Confidential special feature mentions that Jessica's look changed during filming, and the scene where Eddie takes down the Jessica photos and looks at the holiday photos of him and his brother was re-shot to show the new Jessica. Looks like they either missed the newspaper scene or felt that the view was so brief it wasn't necessary to change it.

Revealing mistake: When Roger is bouncing on Eddie's bed, the landings are not in time with Roger's feet.

xx:xx:xx

Who Framed Roger Rabbit mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Close to the film's climax, when Doom is showing off his Dip Machine, we see one of the weasels hoisting a canister of Dip up a ladder. If you look close, you can see a large wire pulling the canister up. This was seen in the VHS version and may have been corrected in the DVD, I am unsure.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When Judge Doom has transformed into his toon-self for the first time, he bounces after Eddie with yellow springs on his feet. Between when he takes off and when he lands, they show 4 different shots. In shots 2 and 3, you can see about 6 black suspension wires running into his clothes and carrying him through the air.

Audio problem: In the secret room where Hoskins and Dolores are hiding Roger right before Hoskins hits his head on the lamp he says, "crazy tunes," but his mouth doesn't move.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Roger and Hoskins are moments away from crashing into a bridge in the cab quickly look at the road there is no gate in between the roads. But when they jump onto the bridge they crash right into a gate.

xx:xx:xx

Joe Campbell

Revealing mistake: When Valiant came upon the ugly Jessica look-alike, and she began to chase him, the chase ends with Eddie moving the roadline towards a wall, the results of which are her crashing into it. When Eddie throws the line to the wall, you can see that the cartoon line goes a bit "into the filmed wall" and covers a part of it.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: Before Benny crashes into the pole while carrying Eddie and Jessica, they show a shot in front of it of him coming towards it, and you can see the pre-cut line in the pole where it breaks in half. This is better seen on the VHS version, it is harder to see on the DVD, but it's there.

xx:xx:xx

Visible crew/equipment: When the weasels search for Roger in Eddie's office, there is a shot where Smart Guy kicks a box aside right after he tells the others to stop laughing. To the right is a puppeteer's shadow pulling the box up in the air.

Visible crew/equipment: In the alley scene, where the two motorcycle policemen collide with the police car, and the motorcycle cops fly over the car, you can see the landing pads placed on the pavement to cushion their fall.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When the weasels are in Valiant's apartment and the leader says, "Step outta line and we'll hang you and your laundry out to dry," you can see the shadow of the mechanical arm used to hold the gun cast on Hoskins.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Valiant is sitting in the Night Club and meets Betty they start to talk. Notice she puts down her tray off to the side, in the next shot the tray is nowhere to be seen.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the weasels are chasing Roger and Hoskins and the weasel says, " I'm going to blow his head off ", look at their icon on the side of their door then quickly look to the left you can see the bumper and back end of the car that is driving the camera.

xx:xx:xx

Joe Campbell

Factual error: Look carefully at the electric trolleys trundling around the streets (and that Valiant hitches a ride on). You'll see that although they have boom arms on top, which are usually hoisted up and connected to overhead powerlines, there are no overhead wires anywhere for them to be getting electricity from. [Notice in the scene when Valiant gives Dolores the check, a Red Car Trolly passes outside the window and sparks fly from the overhead wire contacts. In all of the scenes outside the bar the wires are gone].

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: When Eddie Valiant gets thrown in the garbage by the gorilla he stands up and there is some trash on his back and hat, but when the camera changes shot the trash is gone.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: The Goofy cartoon Roger watches in the theater was made in 1949, but the film takes place in 1947.

Continuity mistake: When Maroon says "Get me a couple of juicy pictures I can wise the rabbit off with" to Eddie, you can see him standing almost face to face with him. But when it cuts from behind Maroon he is standing away.

Mortug
Who Framed Roger Rabbit mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: The window blind in Maroon's office changes to a sheet of tambour (as found in roll-top desks) just before Roger crashes through it. This was to ensure his outline remains perfectly in it, otherwise pieces would drop out which are not attached to the strings on either side.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Hoskins says, "I'm calling the cops," his eyes are following Roger as he walks across the desk, but when you see Roger he is still standing near the chair.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the film the buttons on Smart Guy's jacket switch from pink to gold.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Judge Doom is going to put Roger in the dip Hoskins offers Roger a drink. He takes the drink, but in the next shot takes the drink again but not the same way; the drink spills all over the counter.

xx:xx:xx

Joe Campbell

Revealing mistake: Hoskins and Maroon break the news to Roger Rabbit, and Maroon gives Roger a drink. When he pours the drink you can see a clear plug in the neck of the bottle, and right before Roger Rabbit drinks you can see there is nothing in the glass.

xx:xx:xx

Joe Campbell

Continuity mistake: As Eddy Valiant walks out of Maroon Cartoon studios in the beginning a hippo bumps into him, then walks away. About 7 seconds later you see the hippo sit on a bench causing the bench to collapse to one side and a man fly up. You can clearly see the rope that pulls the man up as well as the actual person holding the rope.

Continuity mistake: When Eddie hands Roger the patty cake photos in R.K. Maroon's office, they look cluttered. Cut to the next shot and the photos are suddenly stacked neatly.

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

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.

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.

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

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.

ryguy_1983

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.

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.

ryguy_1983

Revealing mistake: After Roger reads Marvin Acme's will out loud, all of the toons start jumping for joy. Meanwhile the music machine is still activated in the background, and its colorful flashing lights are being reflected on the ground near Betty Boop and Tweety at the front of the crowd. With all of the toons grouped together like they are, the machine's colorful lights should have been obscured, not reflected.

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.

xx:xx:xx

ryguy_1983

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.

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?

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.

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?

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

Mortug

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

Visible crew/equipment: Right before Eddie goes in for a closer look at the will in Marvin Acme's patty cake photo, a boom mic is reflected in the magnifying glass.

xx:xx:xx

ryguy_1983

Continuity mistake: Baby Herman opens the faucet and floods the kitchen, but 2 seconds later there is no trace of the water. Since the rest of the mess that Herman and Roger cause (scattered cutlery, broken objects and furniture) does appear at the end of the gag when toon and real world combine, some trace of water should be seen somewhere.

xx:xx:xx

Sacha

Continuity mistake: During the first animated Baby Herman scene, he throws away the lid of the cookie jar on top of the fridge. When the fridge crushes Roger, the cookie jar has not only managed to move from the fridge to the floor in a nano second, but also the lid is back on.

xx:xx:xx

Sacha

Other mistake: Three shots after Eddie stuffs the soap into Smart Guy's mouth, when the other four weasels notice him tumbling down the stairs, a chair can be seen flying across the room. This is impossible, because the other four weasels are together, and Smart Guy was talking with Eddie, so there was nobody to throw the chair.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the climactic scene where the Red Car is about to "Dip" Roger and Jessica, one shot of Eddie (shot upward from the ground) also includes the hook that Roger and Jessica are hanging from. However, Roger and Jessica are not animated into this shot.

Revealing mistake: The streetcar railway tracks are simply metal strips laid in the road. When Eddie jumps off the back of the streetcar's bumper, you can see that the rails are not in full contact with the road, as there are visible gaps between the rails and the road surface. What's more, the rails do not have the grooves that would be necessary for the cars' wheel flanges.

Factual error: Eddie Valiant sits in his office looking at the "vacation" pictures also on the roll of film in the camera borrowed from Delores. One of the negatives is crooked in the enlarger and shows 35mm sprocket holes. This was not a 35mm camera.

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.

Factual error: When Doom reaches into the cab of the Dip vehicle and starts it, it doesn't jump. It is a modified military vehicle, and it's a standard. If you try to start a standard vehicle without pressing the clutch in to disengage the gears (the weasel driver left it in gear when he died), then the vehicle would lurch forward as the engine turned over.

Revealing mistake: In some shots with the red cars, such as when Benny, Eddie, and Roger are about to crash into one, look at the wheels. The trucks appear raised with a third, large wheel in the center, obviously a road vehicle outfitted to look like a streetcar.

Add time

jayo

Factual error: The red cars are seen traveling with poles raised on both ends. The wheel at the raised end of the pole, which collects power from the wire, must always be trailing the car. Basically, streetcars going forward have the rear pole raised and front pole lowered, and vice versa. They would not be traveling at normal operating speeds with the front pole raised, as that would damage the wiring system.

Continuity mistake: The number of wood slats on Baby Herman's playpen keeps changing at the start of the film. When his mom says goodbye there are eight slats at the front, and five at the side. When he escapes the playpen there are eight at the side, and when Roger realizes the playpen's empty, there are nine at the side and seven at the front. Additionally, the characteristics of the teddy bear changes, as well as the colors of the balls on the wood slats.

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.

Vader47000

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.

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

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.

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.

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.

Revealing mistake: When Eddie's Plymouth skids out from R.K. Maroon's lot, a large section of the Red Car's railway track gets torn from the pavement with the greatest of ease - revealing that the track is actually just a set of metal strips laid out in the center of the road.

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

xx:xx:xx

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.

Continuity mistake: The driver's side windshield wiper on the Toon Patrol car moves itself to a different position as Eddie and Roger try and make a getaway near the bar. When Eddie looks for a key, only some of the wiper actually makes contact with the windshield, but one shot later the wiper has moved significantly further towards the center.

Continuity mistake: After leaving Judge Doom to be flattened by the steamroller, Eddie runs over to the dip machine and turns off the ignition.

xx:xx:xx

ryguy_1983

Continuity mistake: When Eddie first walks into the bar, he approaches Earl - keeled over on a table. Earl is wearing his hat, but one shot later the hat is lying flat on its top so that Eddie can place it back on his head.

xx:xx:xx

ryguy_1983

Continuity mistake: During "Somethin's Cookin'", Roger lands himself in a wall-mounted ironing board. As he emerges seconds later to a barrage of sharp utensils, notice how there's a wall outlet installed just below and to the left, but it wasn't previously there when he flew into the ironing board.

Factual error: At the moment R.K. Maroon gets shot and killed in his office, look at the framed poster of Pistol Packin' Possum that's dated MCMXXLVIII. In Roman numerals, two X's never appear before an L - which makes this a bogus date.

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.

Sacha

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.

In the next shot she has a shot glass in her hand and a bottle, but when Valiant shows her the check, both the glass and the bottle are gone.

xx:xx:xx

Joe Campbell

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.

xx:xx:xx

Joe Campbell

Continuity mistake: When Eddie goes to meet Maroon with his accusations, Maroon is holding a distinctively brass colored gun. When Eddie attacks him, the gun is released by Maroon, and it instantly cuts to a shot of Eddie on top of him, an identical gun in hand. Then when they get up, Eddie tosses the gun aside. When Doom shoots Maroon through the window, Eddie dives for cover and once again the gun is amazingly in his hand.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: Eddie Valiant borrows Deloris' camera to photograph Jessica playing "Patty Cake". There were at least 13 photos from a roll of film that could make only 6 or 8 shots.

Trivia

In the Ink and Paint Club, when Jessica is about to do her number, just as the curtains open, her dress snaps off for a split second, then reappears. This can only be seen in slow motion on the laserdisc version, however.
