--> '''Maroon''': Nah, he's a 'toon! You can drop anything you like on his head and he'll shake it off. But break his heart, he goes to pieces just like you or me

Compare and contrast Creator/RalphBakshi's ''Film/CoolWorld''; the film's have similar premises but markedly different ways to how they approach them.

Compare and contrast Creator/RalphBakshi's ''Film/CoolWorld''; the film's have ''Film/CoolWorld'', which began as only having [[RogerRabbitEffect similar premises filmmaking techniques]] but markedly different ways to how they approach them.
was [[ExecutiveMeddling watered down]] into a raunchy version of this.

Added DiffLines:

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Judge Doom knows that Roger, being a toon, wouldn't be able to resists finishing the "Shave And A Haircut" tune to lure him out of hiding. [[spoiler:Justified, seeing as Doom's a toon himself.]]
** Eddie as well, realizing that he can kill the weasels by making them laugh too hard. Doubles as a EurekaMoment.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: Roger has a few moments of this.
** Roger can't resist, no matter how much he tries to, finishing the "Shave And A Haircut" tune by bursting through the wall behind Judge Doom and going "TWO BITS!", even though he knows it means going to his own death. Doom knows this due to being DangerouslyGenreSavvy.
** Roger also sings and dances loud enough to be heard from the street while wanted for murder, despite knowing full well he faces certain death if he's caught. His defense when Eddie confronts him with this: "But I'm a toon! Toons are supposed to make people laugh!" Luckily for him, this one ends up working in his favor, forcing Doom to use the "Shave And A Haircut" trick to get Roger to come to him.
** The weasels too, because they laugh at rather more than they should, even though they know if they laugh too hard and too much, it could end up killing them, as had hap[epened to their hyena cousins, as noted by Doom. It does, as Eddie uses this to his advantage to get rid of them, except SmartAss, who gets a GroinAttack that lands him in the Dip.

Set in an AlternateUniverse in the city of UsefulNotes/LosAngeles in mid-1947, during UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation to be specific, this {{Hardboiled|Detective}} FilmNoir depicts a world where [[{{Toon}} cartoon characters]] [[TheyWalkAmongUs are a real ethnic minority living alongside human beings.]] At the center of the story is Roger Rabbit, a [[AnimatedActors Toon movie star]] on the run from the police after having been accused of murdering Marvin Acme, a human manufacturer of cartoon props, with whom Roger's wife Jessica happened to be playing patty-cake.[[note]] Not a euphemism, in this case. See Does This Remind You of Anything? below.[[/note]] His only hope is Eddie Valiant, an alcoholic human private investigator who used to specialize in this kind of case, but [[FantasticRacism has refused to work for Toons]] ever since one [[TragicBigot killed his brother]] by [[PianoDrop dropping a piano on his head]]. He winds up getting sucked into the investigation after Roger hides out at his apartment. Together, the two of them uncover something much bigger than either of them expected.

* RevealingReflection: While Eddie is "[[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique chatting]]" with R.K. Maroon, he notices a gun reflected in Maroon's office window and dives for cover just as it open fire. Maroon, however is caught out in the open, but [[HeKnowsTooMuch he was the actual target anyway]

-->'''Roger''': "I didn't know where your office was, so I asked the news-boy. He didn't know, so I asked fireman, the greengrocer, the butcher, the baker, they didn't know! But the liqueur-store guy, he knew!"
