In Who Framed Roger Rabbit, gumshoe detective Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) is on the job in both Hollywood and Toontown, and the line between reality and fantasy gets blurred as Eddie tries to solve a major "who dunnit." He's thrown for quite a set of curves when he meets Jessica Rabbit, the sultry "toon" who whispers "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way." When Eddie gets mixed up with the fast-talking "toon" Roger Rabbit (Charles Fleischer, TV's House of Mouse) he finds himself crossing paths with such characters as the hilarious Baby Herman (Lou Hirsch, Tom & Viv), Benny the Cab, the sinister Judge Doom (Christopher Lloyd) and more, in a wacky adventure of a lifetime.
