Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Who Framed Roger Rabbit mistake picture

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: Another scene of Jessica's exposure can be found when Benny the cab crashes into the lamp-post after sliding through the puddle of dip. She and Eddie are thrown from the car, and spin around. As Jessica spins, she is seen to have no panties on. This is only visible on the original VHS and Laserdisc versions. On the DVD, fabric from her dress has been added to cover the exposure.

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.

Trivia: After reading Judge Doom's introduction and that the character never blinks, Christopher Lloyd immediately realised that Judge Doom was a toon.

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.
