Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) More at IMDbPro »

The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

Sex is mentioned by Eddie Valiant in one scene, while the word "patty-cake" is used 23 times as a Toontown slang possibly meaning "sex".

Quote: "The problem is I got a fifty-year old lust and a three-year old dinky."

The word "sugar-daddy" is used twice, and "prostate" once.

Violence & Gore

Profanity

1 each use of "son of a bitch", "bastard" and "wise-ass", 3 uses of "damn", 6 uses of "hell", 2 uses of "God".

"Cut the bull schnick" is said once, but the character who says this gets a bar of soap shoved in his mouth.

During the piano scene with Donald Duck and Daffy Duck, Daffy allegedly calls Donald a cracker and Donald calls Daffy a "goddamn stupid n--ger". However, what Donald Duck actually says is supposed to be "doggone stubborn nitwit."

Eddie is an alcoholic and goes to a bar on several occasions where his girlfriend is a bartender. His heavy drinking throughout the film is contrasted by his decision not to drink before entering Toontown and he shoots his bourbon bottle (label clearly visible) with a Toon gun.

There are many scenes with Eddie taking swigs of alcohol. His gun holster holds a bourbon bottle.

A vintage neon Budweiser sign is visible in many shots in the bar.

A man is seen passed out at the bar.

Eddie is seen passed out at his desk with a bottle in his hand.

A gag, not unlike the Bugs Bunny "pronoun trouble" gag, involves whether or not Roger wants a drink.

Roger partakes of alcohol in two separate scenes, both with the same consequence. He loses control of himself as his head forms a steam whistle and he emits a high pitch that breaks all glass nearby.

Baby Herman is often seen smoking a real cigar. In one scene, he throws a tantrum when he loses it.

Children offer the main character cigarettes.

One of the weasels named Wheezy has multiple cigarettes in his mouth at a time and is always surrounded by smoke. His hat also has multiple cigarette boxes in its brim.

The hyper-violent, frantically paced "Maroon Cartoon" at the very beginning of the film can be disturbing to some as child endangerment is at the root of many gags. Roger is electrocuted, set on fire, and pinned to the wall with knives to name a few situations in the cartoon.The violence in the cartoon is a send-up of violent cartoon gags such as those seen in Warner Bros and "Tom and Jerry" cartoons.

In a very disturbing scene, Judge Doom demonstrates what the "dip" does to toons by sticking a cute squeaking living toon shoe in it. That the shoe is executed only for demonstration purposes, and not for any crime is part of the unsettling nature of the scene. The dip kills toons and we see the shoe react in horror and hear its squeals of pain as it is lowered into a vat of dip. Once the shoe is dead, Judge Doom removes his gloved hand that held the red shoe from the vat of dip. The shoe's red paint drips off Doom's glove somewhat resembling blood.

Some of the humor in the movie is misogynist in tone and can be disturbing to sensitive viewers. Baby Herman walks in between a woman's legs looking upward as he does. Baby Herman later tells his human companion "What do you know, you dumb broad? You got the I.Q. of a rattle." Valiant later shoves Baby Herman's carriage and it crashes into her. Men leer at Jessica. Cleavage gags are also prominent in the film as previously noted.

The high-energy Toontown sequence can be disturbing.

Judge Doom's "toon form" and his fight with Eddie might scare young viewers. Judge Doom melting is pretty disturbing. When he is done melting he leaves a very grotesque and disturbing plastic body behind.

suggested rating PG for comic action violence, successive content, language, a disturbing image and smoking.
