** The movie is also a pastiche of 1940s pulp mystery novels where private investigators basically end up investigating murders and robberies despite that being a job for the police basically because of RuleOfCool.

*** Showing the pictures to ''Roger'' wasn't the threat, showing them to ''Acme's wife'' would've been. Using them to manipulate Roger was only Maroon's pretense, to keep Valiant from wondering why Maroon wanted photos of Acme with Jessica.

** A toon train nevertheless, and running on toon tracks. Let's hope it has some trick to avoid a crash, like Eddie the Cab, else it'll be a railroad disaster as soon as the remaining Dip eats the rails out from under it....

** Given that the shoe in question had previously been stored in a box among the merchandise at a warehouse, it seems very unlikely that it was an example of a recognized ''sentient'' toon. ''Talking'' toons are shown to work jobs for pay and are subject to the (however corrupt) legal system; it's extremely unlikely that they can be boxed up for sale.

to:

** FridgeBrilliance: Porky Pig appears as a police officer at the very end of the film. If he's an example of the caliber of cop that Toontown typically has on the job, then even before the Weasels became the main enforcers of authority in the neighborhood, it'd make sense for the bank's owners to want to call in outside help.

** Small human children playing pattycake may not be considered any different from the same small children playing "House", i.e. going through the motions of being married adults, without any intended sexual implications.

*** Or if mobility is a prerequisite for being "alive", they might've arisen from kinetoscope-clips or flip-books, some time before film's invention.




to:

** Perhaps Doom intended it to get rid of any tracks his Dip-tanker might leave behind it, to obscure where it came from. He doesn't want to leave any evidence that he destroyed a whole section of the city, after all.




to:

** Certainly the way Eddie converses with them implies they've been in gunfights together before.

to:

** It's never stated that L.A.'s Toontown is the ''only'' place in the country, or world, where Toons live. It's entirely possible that the Weasels expect to re-locate to some other city where animated films were produced in that era, like New York (Famous Studios) or somewhere in France or Argentina.

** The "die of laughing" only affects Hyenas and Weasels as it is said several times in the movie, by Doom and Greasy. Eddie seems surpresie to hear about it so it's obviously not a common trait among toons.
