Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a 1988 part-animated comedy directed by Robert Zemeckis.
Awww, Baby wants his rattle.
The movie starts out with a cartoon of Roger Rabbit and Baby Herman, only to be interrupted by the director who yells at Roger for having birds fly around his head and not stars when he is hit over the head with a refrigerator. Turns out that in this world, humans live with character characters, named "Toons". Toons and humans live together but the Toons live in a area near Hollywood called Toon-Town. Some of the people who live in Toon-Town are Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Daffy Duck, Goofy, Elmer Fudd, Roger Rabbit (A fun loving hyperactive rabbit), Jessica Rabbit (Roger's wife and beautiful bombshell), and Baby Herman (a 50 year old trapped in a babies body).
When R. K. Maroon owner of Maroon Cartoon studios hires human detective Eddie Valiant (an alcoholic detective who hates Toons after one of them killed his brother)to investigate if Roger's wife is having an affair he finds himself trapped in a mystery that is a lot larger than it may seem. Eddie shows Roger the pictures of Jessica"cheating" on him with Marvin Acme, owner of the Acme factory. Roger runs away in a fit of anger.
Doom about to kill Roger using "The Dip"
Later on Marvin Acme has been murdered and Roger is the prime suspect. At the crime scene Eddie meets Judge Doom and his Weasel henchmen. While Toons are unable to die from any form of physical abuse, Judge Doom has found a way to kill Toons, he uses a liquid called "The Dip" that melts Toons into nothing but the paint they were made from.
Eddie talks to Baby Herman who tells Eddie that Marvin Acme had a will that left the property of Toon-Town to it's citizens. However the will disappeared and if it's not found the Toon-Town will be sold to the highest bidder. Eddie finds out that Baby Herman was right when he sees the will in one of the pictures he took of Marvin and Jessica cheating. Roger then appears telling Eddie that he's been hiding since he's wanted for murder and that there is no justice for Toons anymore. If anybody finds Roger he's "As good as Dip." Roger tells him that he didn't kill Marvin Acme but instead went to where Jessica works, and wrote her a love letter on a blank piece of paper.
Eddie and Roger handcuffed together
Eddie decides to investigate the case with the help of his girlfriend Dolores, while hiding Roger from Judge Doom's Weasel henchmen.
Eddie is eventually greeted by Jessica Rabbit, who tells him that R.K. Maroon wanted to blackmail Marvin Acme and that if she did cheat on Roger with Marvin, then Roger would "Never work in this town again." Eddie eventually finds out that Cloverleaf Industries (who have also bought the Red Car Trolley Cars system a few days earlier) have placed the highest bid to buy Toon-Town. Eddie also finds out that R.K. Maroon is selling his studio to Cloverleaf Industries.
Eddie interrogates R.K. Maroon who tells him that Cloverleaf would not buy his studio unless Marvin Acme sold his factory,but Marvin wouldn't sell so he tried to blackmail Marvin with pictures of him and Jessica having an affair. Before Marvin can say anymore he is shot in the back by an unseen assassin. Eddie avoids the Assassin's attempts to kill him and Eddie watches as he sees Jessica Rabbit fleeing from the scene of the crime. Eddie chases her into Toon-Town and eventually catches her only to find out that she's innocent.
Roger and Jessica are a little "tied up"
She tells him that Judge Doom killed Marvin Acme and is trying to take over Toon-Town but are captured by Judge Doom and The Weasels and held at the Acme Factory. Doom reveals that he owns Cloverleaf Industries and that if Marvin Acme's Will isn't found in a few minutes, he becomes owner of Toon-Town and will destroy it along with every Toon in it to make way for a freeway, which he will force people to use by dismantling the trolley fleet.
With Roger and Jessica tied up, Eddie decides to perform a comedy act in front of the Weasels that makes them literally die laughing. Eddie and Doom fight only for Eddie to find out that Doom is actually a Toon disguised as a human, and that he's the Toon that killed his brother. Eddie manages to kill Doom by melting him with a vat of "Dip". The police and Toons arrive and Eddie finds out that Marvin had written his will in "disappearing/reappearing ink" and that the piece of paper Roger wrote his poem for Jessica on was actually Marvin Acme's will.
Eddie and Roger become friends, as all of the Toons celebrate and cheer in victory.
