'Toon star Roger is worried that his wife Jessica is playing pattycake with someone else, so the studio hires detective Eddie Valiant to snoop on her. But the stakes are quickly raised when Marvin Acme is found dead and Roger is the prime suspect. Groundbreaking interaction between the live and animated characters, and lots of references to classic animation. Written by

The crowd scenes at the beginning of the Toontown sequence consist mostly of animation from previous Disney films. (Re-using animation was a common practice for Disney up until the early 1990s.) See more »
Although the street cars are shown to drive on rails, they are actually decorated buses with rubber tires. This is noticeable through the way they come to a stop: a rail car is unable to stop as abruptly as the cars in the movie, and will not exhibit the typical 'bounce' of a vehicle with tires.

To make a great classic film i think it has to work on several different levels and this one not only plays on many different levels It scores tremendously.
It is a great childrens movie. With zany classic characters such as Roger, the Weasles, and Benny the Cab. They are original crazy and fun. Also it is a mystery. It plays perfectly as one of those Old 50's detective stories. It is a milestone in film making. The scenes of the "toons" and humans sharing a world is great. I think the best scene as special effects go, is the one where Eddie and Roger are handcuffed together in his office. It looks so real!!!!! This movie is fun and creative and will go down in movie history. I don't know what else to say it is simply the best.
Also do your self a favor and steer clear of the bad rip off Cool World.
