Bill Murray and Robin Williams were both considered to play Eddie Valiant before Bob Hoskins got the role. Hoskins later collaborated with Murray and Williams in Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (2006) and Hook (1991) Murray and Hoskins did voice-over work in one of the aforementioned films whilst Williams and Hoskins were part of the live-action cast of the other.
Mommy's going to the beauty parlor, darling, but I'm leaving you with your favorite friend, Roger. He's going to take very, very good care of you, because if he doesn't... HE'S GOING BACK TO THE SCIENCE LAB.
When Eddie first takes his toon gun box out of the car and opens it, the wooden box is twice as tall as it is in following shots. In subsequent shots, starting with the closeup of the sleeping bullets, and the wide shot where the box is seen beside Eddie as he takes out his flask, the box is half the size in height.

In the original theatrical run and the VHS and laserdisc releases, when Jessica Rabbit and Eddie are thrown out of the cab there are a few frames where Jessica's underwear is visible, but the coloring is sometimes close to that of her legs, so that it has been mistakenly assumed that she is not wearing any underwear. This was altered for the first DVD so that she is more clearly wearing white panties. For the DVD release it was altered again, so that now, her dress covers her entirely.
