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: 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: 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".

Trivia: While uncredited for the role, it's mostly known that Kathleen Turner did the voice for Jessica Rabbit. However, that was only for the speaking parts. Her singing voice was actually done by Steven Spielberg's then-wife, Amy Irving.

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)

More trivia for Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Question: When Eddie is fighting Doom at the end he spots a box with a singing sword in it. He whips it out and sure enough, the sword starts singing. My question is, why would there even be a singing sword? Is this a reference to something else?

Answer: Valiant also shares his name with Arthurian comic strip hero Prince Valiant, who wields a singing sword, Flamberge.

Chosen answer: One of the legends of Excalibur says that the sword sang when Arthur pulled it from the stone. Bugs Bunny went on a quest for the singing sword in a cartoon once, so there's historical AND cartoon precedence for singing swords.

Answer: This is also a gag factory where such things like that would be made for cartoons.
