The time is Hollywood in its heyday, and cartoons are king. But falling star Roger Rabbit's about lose his place as ruler of the empire. Distracted by his wife's alleged infidelities, Roger is one falling anvil away from being fired -- and studio head R.K. Maroon wouldn't mind hastening the process. So the befuddled bunny hires down-and-out detective Eddie Valiant to help him get back the sultry, bosomy Jessica Rabbit. At first Valiant refuses -- he's got his own reasons for hating the 'toons. But when the studio tycoon Maroon is found dead, Roger's one marked rabbit. So Valiant ignores his better judgment and tries to save the harassed hare from a nefarious Judge just aching to terminate him. For Roger's sake, he ventures into a dangerous and tempting space, the place where anything can happen and imagination rules... the magical, maniacal 'Toontown.
