Trivia

When Roger bursts into the hospital room to grieve for Baby Herman, an anatomy chart on the wall is a picture of Mickey Mouse (skeleton). See more »

Goofs

When Baby Herman first swallows the rattle, Roger panics and screams for somebody to call 9-1-1. However, in the end when it reverts to the "real world", the setting is the same 1940s setting as "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" - 9-1-1 wasn't even proposed as an emergency number in the United States until 1968.

The best Roger Rabbit short...period
29 October 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

After the wonderful film WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT, Disney Pictures experimented by making several short cartoons starring Roger Rabbit and they were shown before feature films--much like the original purpose of classic Warner Brothers, MGM and Disney toons. Unfortunately, Disney also chose to pair these amazing shorts with some of the worst films of the era--virtually guaranteeing they would never see the light of day! Today, the only way you can see them is on an out of print videotape entitled "THE BEST OF ROGER RABBIT". It is NOT available on DVD nor does it appear to be coming out in the near future.

In this short, Roger is, as usual, watching the troublesome Baby Herman. Not surprisingly, Baby Herman is a real handful and nearly kills Roger again and again as Roger tries to save the kid's life. Things really move into high gear when the baby swallows his rattle and Roger rushes him to the most insane hospital ever placed on film! You just have to see it to believe it.

Now as to the quality of this cartoon, it is amazingly violent and insane--even more so than the typical Tex Avery cartoon of the 1950s. Because the characters are so funny, the animation quality so superb and the action so intense, this is one of the greatest cartoon shorts you can find---period. Too bad the powers that be at Disney were idiots who didn't realize they had gold on their hands!

UPDATE 2/09--According to IMDb, "This animated short can be found on the Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) Vista Series DVD, released in 2003".
