Also, one thing that they had censored at one points on the 1st bare bones DVD was when Baby Herman gooses the woman as he passes underneath her dress near the beginning.

They changed it on the 1st DVD to where his arm stayed at his side.

They restored this for the Vista Vision special edition DVD release to where his arm goes back up however his middle finger isn't extended anymore as it was in the theatrical release which made it a bit more than a normal goose.   TeddyR

In the credits, they say that the movie is based off of a book called "The Toontown Murders" (or something like that).  I've been trying to find the book for years and have had no luck...

"Roger Rabbit" was a mind blowing film...This was back when Robert Zemeckis actually made good movies.  I'm sorry, I didn't really like "Cast Away" and "The Polar Express".  Maybe "Beowulf" will change my mind.

Christopher Lloyd getting run over by a steamroller was a little too traumatic to my 10 year old mind at the time...but it still was amazing to see Donald and Daffy on the dueling pianos.   BounceGiggle

Actually, the film was based on the book "Who Censored Roger Rabbit?" by Gary K.. Wolf. I have the book, but like 99% of my books, it is boxed up, in storage, and inaccessible at this time. The film does the book justice.

What I awlays found surprising about the film, is how well the storyline works in it.

Of course, I love the film, and especially seeing all the cartoon characters in it. There are over fifty character from Walt Disney Studios, and almost twenty from Warner Brotjhers, Univeral, and Paramount. There will, most likely, never be a cartoon line up like that again. Even though, after its success, there was talkg of doing a sequel to it.

Of course, now that Eisner has left Disney, and Iger has taken over the company, and Spielberg and his Amblin Entertainment is looking to leave Paramount for a new home, the talk of a sequel is being revived.

I'd love to see a sequel, but if only all the things could be aligned right.  But some sequels never seem to hold up.

I'm kinda on the fence on this one. At the time, it was unlike any other mainstream movie, the animation and film were seemless. The story however, wasn't that great IMO. Roger being such an idiot just wasn't amusing to me, which is kinda surprising.

I liked the original and think a sequel would just tarnish it.  Blending animation and film just isn't done any more, in fact "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" was probably  the peak of it.  Any sequel would use CGI and it would be like the transformers movie where the style is totally changed.  One of the good parts of the movie was the nostalgia it rose.

I loved this movie too.  The whole thing blew me away when I first saw it.  I found Roger's voice a little annoying and he was waaay over the top for my usual tastes, but it's still a stunner.

I also liked the fact that Spielberg's then wife Amy Irving did Jesicca's singing voice and Kathleen Turner was the BEST pick for the speaking voice

You guys are so nice.  But my actually name comes from a Tori Amos song "Taxi Ride".  It's just serendipitous that it's associated with bad movies.

It's been a while for me on this one...but if my grandmother hadn't taken me to see it in the theatre as a child I'd probably be a much more boring person today. All I can say is that, when 'Space Jam' came out, I knew I wouldn't see it, and I knew there'd never be another movie like Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Space Jam was a departure, for sure.  Have you seen Looney Tunes: Back in Action?

God I love this movie but it ruined my life, Jessica had too much an impact on me.

Regarding the story , I regard it highly. Using toons instead of other minorities and according to the imdb trivia the plan with the cable cars is based historical events.

Also it's great that many former toon stars do have their appearances also Felix the Cat should really have been in there as well as Krazy Kat and....
