A toon-hating detective is a cartoon rabbit's only hope to prove his innocence when he is accused of murder.
Surprisingly very little merchandise was made for this film. Only a few small plastic figures of Roger, The Weasels and Baby Herman where made, able to be purchased from selected video rental stores at the time of the movie's release on home video.
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 Roger Rabbit drinks the whiskey in the bar while being held at the neck by Judge Doom, the Judge briefly lets go of him, but Roger doesn't fall down. (The moment he let go was when Roger swallows the whiskey, so he presumably opened up his hand to allow space for Roger's neck to get bigger when the whiskey is swallowed. However he may have opened his hand too wide or the animation was not successfully drawn to match the hand movement.)

When Eddie Valiant approached a gorilla, who was guarding the entrance door of a lounge, he said, "Nice monkey suit." Then the gorilla responds, "Wise ass." On TV, the line was changed to "Wise guy", to make it more appropriate. The change was pretty noticeable, because the new voice was different from the gorilla's original voice.
