Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Who Framed Roger Rabbit mistake picture

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.


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.


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

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


Revealing mistake: When Wheezy and Psycho laugh at Smart Guy after he has fallen down the stairs, if you look closely you can see the wires holding Wheezy's machine gun up.


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.

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.



Revealing mistake: When Daffy gets thrown into Donald's grand piano, a wire is visible on the upper left side of the screen - closing the lid on his beak.



Revealing mistake: During the piano duel finale, Donald blasts a cannon at Daffy and the grand piano collapses - seemingly from the impact. But if you look closely there are actually ropes pulling the piano's legs from somewhere offstage.



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: After Lena Hyena plants a kiss on Eddie, he tumbles down the street and lands face-first onto a solid white line. Pavement is animated into this shot, however a reflection of the stage floor is still visible.



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.



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.



Revealing mistake: At one point where Roger drags Eddie over to the electrical outlet spy hole in Dolores' secret room, Roger says "This will be a great place to hide." Both of them are handcuffed together in this shot, but Roger's shadow is not animated into his cuff.



Revealing mistake: After being flattened by the steamroller, Judge Doom staggers over to the compressed air tank and reinflates himself. When his black hat pops off, strings can be seen pulling it up.



Revealing mistake: When Benny the Cab jumps onto a bridge with Roger and Eddie, a red Ford De Luxe skids to avoid a collision. Notice how tire tracks from a previous take are visible on the pavement.

Revealing mistake: After Bongo the Gorilla Bouncer tosses Eddie into a pile of garbage cans in the back alley, Eddie lifts himself up and here we can see that he's wearing knee pads beneath his pants.



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.



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.

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.

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.



Revealing mistake: Just before a conveyor belt drops the vase upon Eddie's head, an overhead shot shows him pointing at Smart Guy, but actually Eddie points much further left in relation to where Smart Guy is standing.



Revealing mistake: After shooting their way into Eddie's apartment, the weasels start walking in and cast long shadows on the floor. But the only shadow visible in a reflection on the nearby glass doors is that of Wheezy's Tommy gun.



Revealing mistake: A string is visible suspending Greasy's gun when Smart Guy orders everybody to search Eddie's apartment for Roger.



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.

Revealing mistake: When Eddie is using the magnet to pull Judge Doom toward him, you can see the wires attached to Doom's shoulders used to move him.


Revealing mistake: In the Acme warehouse, Roger's shadow disappears a split second before the bricks land on him.



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.



Revealing mistake: After getting a mouthful of soap from Eddie, Smart Guy is thrown across the room and loses his gun. When the gun hits the wall you can see it dangling from a puppeteer's string in mid-air.



Revealing mistake: When Toon Town's red curtain rises for Eddie in the long tunnel, the reflection on the pavement doesn't move correspondingly.



Revealing mistake: When a bar of soap knocks Wheezy into the window blinds, he casts no shadow on the wall, but his Tommy gun does.



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: 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.



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.



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.



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.

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.

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.



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.



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.
