* SincerityMode: Roger's apologetic tone when explaining the RuleOfFunny suggests that he's not just trolling, and isn't any more pleased than Eddie is about how he couldn't slip out of the cuffs any sooner.

* PervyPatdown: When Judge Doom tells his henchmen to frisk Jessica for Marvin Acme's will, Greasy Weasel reaches down her ample cleavage to do it''and'' to cop a feel but all he gets is his hand caught in a BearTrap.

* PervyPatdown: When Judge Doom tells his henchmen the weasels to frisk Jessica for Marvin Acme's will, Greasy Weasel eagerly reaches down her ample cleavage to do it''and'' so ''and'' to cop a feel (seriously, his tongue droops out his mouth in excitement), but all he gets is his hand caught in a BearTrap.

* NotDistractedByTheSexy: While every other male character thinks very lustfully of Jessica, Roger seems alone in seeing her as a human being (kinda?), not a piece of meat.
** Which could count as FridgeHeartwarming: Roger is, as she puts it, the only guy who can "make her laugh," which could mean he's the only guy she knows who's main concern is her happiness.

Set in the city of UsefulNotes/LosAngeles in mid-1947, during UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation to be specific, the {{Hardboiled|Detective}} FilmNoir tribute depicts a hypothetical 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.

* RaceLift: For a film about oppressed minorities, the fact the original book's ''brown'' rabbit is turned ''white'' in the film has some UnfortunateImplications.
