* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADrojCw6amM The appearance of the Toon who killed Teddy Valiant.]]
-->'''[[spoiler:Judge Doom]]:''' Remember me, Eddie?! When I ''killed your brother'', I talked ''JUST... ''LIKE''... '''''THIIIIIIS'''''!!''
** Now in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zyPM-LFpwU G-Major]]. Sweet dreams.
** Made even more terrifying by the fact that [[spoiler: Doom]] was so [[TheStoic serious]] and sane compared to the rest of the cast for most of the film, until his [[TheReveal reveal as a Toon]], suddenly smiling [[SlasherSmile and not the good kind]]. And those [[HellishPupils Cartoonish eyes]], oh God, [[RedEyesTakeWarning those]] {{e|ldritchAbomination}}yes that can't even stay in one design for an entire scene. And that insanely high pitched voice. No wonder he's not in the ride!
*** [[NothingIsScarier "Gee, I wonder what he REALLY looked like?"]]
** The worst part is, normal toons always cause AmusingInjuries because they don't try to harm anyone and are in it for the laughs; Judge Doom, on the other hand, can and ''does'' harm people using ToonPhysics. It's a good thing Eddie dodged that buzzsaw when he did.
*** Remember also Roger's comments that toons can only use this power by RuleOfFunny. [[FridgeHorror Judge Doom thinks all of this is hilarious.]]
** And he did all this by only revealing his eyes, hands and voice. Don't even begin to imagine what the rest of him looked like under that LatexPerfection mask. Good thing he got dipped before he could show that ...
*** The graphic novel sequel, ''Roger Rabbit: The Resurrection of Doom'' offers [[http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120609162551/disney/images/d/d2/Resurrection_of_doom3a.png this]] as Doom's true Toon form, complete with a SlasherSmile just to ensure sleep-deprivation.
** Originally in WhatCouldHaveBeen: He was going to have even much scarier features like his real [[spoiler: Toon mouth and RED HANDS WITH LONG NAILS]], and was going to have more lines like the above and he was going to played by Creator/ChristopherLee.
*** Tim Curry was turned down from playing Judge Doom because he was so scary in his audition that Zemeckis, Creator/StevenSpielberg and Kathleen Kennedy were all scared out of their minds of him, and considering [[Literature/{{It}} how he played Pennywise,]] it's better if he didn't.
* Speaking of Judge Doom, let's talk about the substance he creates, known as the dip. Any toon that comes in contact dies instantly, in fact, they are permanently erased. And to think he actually planned on flooding Toontown with it...not a pleasant thought, is it?
** Even worse is the fact that Toontown is home to ''all'' toons, no matter the animation studio. If Judge Doom had succeeded, Snow White, Mickey, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Donald Duck, and every other cartoon character kids love would be ''dead forever''. Your childhood and that of everyone else would've literally dissolved.
** "They're not kid gloves Mr. Valiant. This is how we ''handle things'' down in Toontown, I think you, of all people, would appreciate that". That line suggests that Doom and his cronies dip innocent Toons in Toontown at any given time.
* Many scenes in Toontown.
** The sequence where Eddie Valiant meets Tweety Bird, Bugs Bunny, and Mickey Mouse (while falling from a skyscraper. They're less than helpful).
*** Though Mickey felt sorry for Eddie. And Bugs ''did'' warn Eddie he wouldn't want the "spare".
*** The singing trees...
* The [[TheSilentBob straitjacketed weasel Psycho]] is practically a NightmareFuelStationAttendant. Just listen to him coo, "Time to kill the raaaab-biiiiit..." He even turns the Dip on [[spoiler: Jessica and Roger AFTER HE'S DEAD. His ghost was ''that'' invested in killing them.]]
* Watching Doom [[spoiler: being crushed by a steam roller]].
** [[spoiler: And watching him peel himself off the floor and totter around, giggling wildly. For a Toon, that's really, really not a funny way to recover from physical trauma.]]
** [[spoiler: Then screaming as he melts from his own Dip after revealing he's a Toon.]] Of course, considering how much of a horrid monster Judge Doom really is (Such as killing an innocent cartoon shoe earlier), [[AssholeVictim he pretty much deserves it.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwPkAUBr4Sc Judge Doom killing a Toon shoe]], ''slowly'', with Dip, while it screams piteously.
** If you pay attention, the other guy talking to Eddie ''looks away'' during the execution. Even in-universe this is terrifying them.
** Made even worse in the original script where it's a talking gopher that accidentally bumps into Doom and subsequently dipped. Not to mention, the gopher dies pleading for its life!
** What makes it look more scary is that the shoe is now nothing but red paint on Doom's glove. If not for what we saw, anyone would have mistaken that for blood.
* Judge Doom in general, seeing as how he was intentionally meant to invoke UncannyValley (makeup was used to make his skin look unnaturally white and flawless, and he ''never'' blinks onscreen).
** The scary thing is that he's played by [[Film/BackToTheFuture Doc Brown]] -- so you would expect he was CrazyAwesome and good-hearted -- instead he's AxCrazy and capable of any monstrous act he could get a shot at doing.
** When describing his ambitious plans for the freeway project, he does sound a bit like Doc Brown.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=OJfateiaasY#t=105 "Pighead" deleted scene]].
* Roger's reactions to shots of strong alcohol (rocketing into the air while shrieking like a steam whistle, shattering everything breakable in Maroon's office/the bar).
* Eddie driving into Toon Town a land of eternal sunshine and everything is alive and happy and singing. Being a real person in a land of cartoons is just creepy.
* The opening cartoon. It played out exactly like a slapstick cartoon from the Golden Age... except that it was highlighted with horrifying, tense music and dramatic, dizzying camera angles. The whole thing was just nerve-wracking.
* When Wheezy is dying, his angelic soul floats out of him. Coughing, he desperately reaches out for it, but it flies away and he dies.
* Anyone else find Roger chewing out Eddie over whether or not to find a new girl after seeing the [[ItMakesSenseInContext Patty Cake]] pictures, kind of creepy?
--> '''R.K. Maroon:''' Roger, I know this seems pretty painful now, but you'll find someone new. Won't he, Mr. Valiant?
-->'''Eddie Valiant:''' Good looking guy like that? Dames will be breaking his doors down.
-->'''Roger Rabbit:''' Dames? What dames?!
-->[Angrily grabbing Eddie by the lapels]
-->'''Roger Rabbit:''' Jessica's the only one for me! You'll see! We'll rise above this piddling peccadillo! We're gonna be happy again! You got that?! HAPPY! CAPITAL H-A-P-P-I!!!
-->[Runs through window]
-->'''Eddie Valiant:''' [[SarcasmMode At least he took it well.]]
* When Eddie causes the Weasels to die laughing, their souls leave their bodies. When he kicks Smart-Ass into the dip, his soul doesn't. [[DeaderThanDead The Dip destroys their very souls.]]
** More likely, its that the souls is the sign of a "funny death" like in a cartoon, while the Dip is the sign of a serious, painful death which isn't meant to be funny, and thus no cartoony souls with harps and wings.
** It could possibly mean that the other weasels are still "alive" in a sense, but Smart-Ass is DeaderThanDead.
* Here's a frightening bit of RealitySubtext for you: those chemicals used to create the "dip"? Those were used in the earliest days of animation studios, who would cut costs by washing off painted cels after they'd been photographed to be reused in future films. As a result, physical artwork from many of those films have been LostForever. In-universe it's suggested that toons are made of ink-and-paint, meaning that [[AndIMustScream once dipped]] [[{{Unperson}} they are as well]].
