YMMV: Who Censored Roger Rabbit?
  • Adaptation Displacement: Did you know there was a book of the film?
  • Animation Age Ghetto: Gary Wolf had trouble getting Who Censored Roger Rabbit? published because of this, see What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids? below.
  • Ass Pull: Eddie litterally WISHES for conclusive proof (even though it's fake) that an already dead man was the sole murderer.
  • Tear Jerker
    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.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Though 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 eighties hits such as Indiana Jones and Back to the Future. 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 there were cartoons in the subject matter.
