* AdaptationDisplacement: Did you know there was [[TheFilmOfTheBook a book of the film?]]
* AnimationAgeGhetto: Gary Wolf had trouble getting ''Who Censored Roger Rabbit?'' published because of this, see WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids below.
* AssPull: Eddie literally [[spoiler: WISHES for conclusive proof (even though it's fake) that an already dead man]] was the sole murderer. Fortunately, the proof fits the crime - in fact, it's the ''only'' explanation that would work that didn't have Roger being the murderer. To be fair, however, Eddie already [[spoiler: knew Roger was the murderer, and needed physical proof of the only thing that could get Roger off the hook.]]
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Unlike the film, every single characters in the main cast are unlikable. Eddie is a cynical bigot, Roger is [[spoiler:a murderer who planned to frame Eddie]], Jessica is a philandering porn star who [[spoiler:never loved Roger at all]]. It made you wish that Eddie [[spoiler:had let Roger to admit for his crime]].
-->[[spoiler: I looked up at the sky. It was one of those rare days when the Earth revolves a little faster and shoos away the smog. You could see a long way, but not half as far as Roger had gone.]]
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Though [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit the film]] was not intended for children and thus has a good deal of profanity and risque humor in it, it's still a fairly family-friendly ouvre in the vein of previous [[TheEighties eighties]] hits such as ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' and ''Film/BackToTheFuture''. These books, however, are most certainly not for children, being full of sex, violence, oodles and oodles of betrayal (seriously, take a shot every time someone gets back-stabbed), and featuring a racist bigot as a main character (but to be fair, he does chill out and become more tolerant through the course of his adventures). Indeed, Mr. Wolf had difficulties selling this book to publishers because many assumed it was an extremely ill-conceived children's novel simply because [[AnimationAgeGhetto there were cartoons in the subject matter]].
