Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Who Framed Roger Rabbit trivia picture Video

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)

Trivia: When the filmmakers sought permission to use the Looney Tunes characters in the film, Warner Brothers only agreed on the condition that Bugs Bunny receive equal screen time with Mickey Mouse.

Trivia: Ever wonder what all that technical jargon that Judge Doom rattles off about his "Dip" was all about? The Dip, which he tells Eddie is a mixture he has made out of acetone, benzene, and turpentine, is the only way to kill a toon. Why? Because these are essentially the three main ingredients in "Paint Thinner" - which he uses to literally remove a toon's paint, thereby removing their existence. (00:33:20)

Trivia: The film's credits run for nearly ten minutes. At the time of its release, Who Framed Roger Rabbit held the record for having the longest end credits sequence in cinema history. (01:37:05 - 01:43:30)

Trivia: After filming, Bob Hoskins had hallucinations, and his son became angry at him for not bringing any of his cartoon friends home.

Trivia: In early versions of the script, Judge Doom had a pet vulture and was the one who shot Bambi's mother.

Trivia: A nice subtle detail you might not notice right away - in almost every single scene, Doom's cloak is lightly billowing, as though it has a perpetual breeze running through it. Not only is this a cute nod to the classic cliche of the "billowing cloak" many villains have in comics and cartoons, but it's also a very subtle "hint" that something's not quite right about him.

Trivia: The title has no question mark at the end, because according to director Robert Zemeckis, there's an old superstition that films with a question mark in the title do badly at the box office.

Video

Trivia: In a bit of irony, Bob Hoskin's live-action character Eddie Valiant had to be animated in a few quick shots during the car-chase with the weasels and Bennie the cab, due to the high-speeds and/or chaotic movement, which would have been too dangerous (or too impractical) to do with Bob Hoskins or a stunt-double. These shots (which actually look fairly creepy, due to Valiant's animated form falling into "uncanny valley") are most easily seen by going frame-by-frame in certain quick shots.

Trivia: The cartoon oven in the kitchen during the first scene of the movie shows the name Hotternell. Which if you say it out loud reads like "hotter then hell".

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. (00:27:00)

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.

More quotes from Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Question: Does "pattycake" also mean something sexual? We were obviously at first supposed to think Jessica and Acme had sex, but if they were, why would she say "pattycake" and why does Maroon say "You're not the first guy whose wife went pattycake on him"? Am I missing out on something?

Chosen answer: According to the director, Pattycake is the toon equivalent to sex.
