** Perhaps Lena knew the Men's Room wasn't there and raced to get to the street below in order to catch Eddie.

** Possible reasons: a) He's crazy a didn't care. b) Worst case scenario he takes away his [[spoiler:human disguise]] and goes living incognito with another identity. c) He intended to destroy the place but he assume that the residents may still scape (except for trees, buildings and the like) and, though homeless, the Toons be still alive.

**I pretty much doubt there's an animated version of Superman in this universe, and if anime exist, then they are probably living in their own version of Toon Town in Japan and have other rules. It's more likely that in-universe there is not such a thing as animated drama.

** I always thought that was only for the Weasels in particular, not for every toon in existence. Anyway, except in the case of Dip, no death seem permanent anyway.

**Some classic 20s and 30s cartoons were pretty cruel actually, Disney change that, but the HappyTreeFriends would be just fine among some old cartoons.

*** The most likely explanation comes from what an above troper already suggested; not all toons are considered equally sentient in a similar way how we don't consider humans at the same level of dogs and cats even when we all are mamals and probably not as different from a toon's perspective. The shoe is clearly a non-sentient toon, equivalent to a toon animal or plant, the other more advance toons may have more rights as the movie itself shows that Doom can not just killed Roger or Jessica without a good reason and has to comply with arrest them. The most correct analogy will be like why Doom was not prosecuted by some sort of animal cruelty laws, if they existed in the 40s.

** I doubt toons existed before the existence of film. We see some old toons to be black and white, like BettyBoop and there's no reason for them to be black and white unless somehow they're connected to the film they came from. A WMG but probably in modern times there will be CGI toons running around. They're probably some sort of weird experiment from a MadScientist/Cinematographer that somehow make them alive and/or some sort of magical spell that affected films. If they existed before the invention of film then I guess they were the goblins, imps, spirits and other trickter entities of the different cultures.

** The original book is ''very'' dark, and very different from the movie. You may think this offender the author, but not at all, he loves the movie and he even retconned as one of Jessica´s nightmares and made the sequels more akin to the movie.
