"I Don't Work For Toons"
Hollywood, 1947. A world where animated film stars, known as “toons,” co-exist in reality alongside humans. Down-on-his-luck human private eye EDDIE VALIANT is barely getting by. The phone rings.
"It's Gonna Be Fine"
With VALIANT at his side (and damning pictures in hand), studio executive R.K. MAROON sits underperforming star ROGER RABBIT down to deliver the harsh news: the rabbit’s wife, Jessica, has been caught playing “pattycake” (literally!) with Marvin Acme. ROGER does not take it well.
In the hours following Roger’s apparent jealousy-fueled meltdown, Marvin Acme is found murdered, and Roger is widely presumed guilty. Skeptical, VALIANT visits the crime scene, where Toontown’s corrupt JUDGE DOOM is already looming. DOOM insists his new Toon-killing innovation, “The Dip,” is the only way to make Toons “respect the law.”
Returning home from the crime scene, VALIANT is met by Roger’s long-time co-star and friend, BABY HERMAN. Depicted as an innocent cartoon infant (but actually a gruff, middle-aged man within), BABY is even more cranky than usual—he’s here on a mission.
"Drawn That Way"
JESSICA RABBIT surprises EDDIE VALIANT with a visit, insisting she and her husband ROGER were set up. She begs VALIANT to clear ROGER’s name. VALIANT questions why he should trust her.
WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT inspired by
the 1988 Robert Zemeckis Touchstone/Amblin film
