Who Framed Roger Rabbit? chapter 1
Hollywood, 1947, two children are investigating. The girl is named Cherry and she is dressed like a typical teen of the 1940's and she is accompanied by a boy around her age named Atticus. They were watching a live broadcast filming of a Roger Rabbit cartoon with Baby Herman. Cherry was mostly there because she wanted to be a cartoonist someday inspired by the greats, including the creator of Roger Rabbit and Baby Herman himself, RK Maroon. Cherry and Atticus watched avidly as Roger Rabbit was flung all around getting all sorts of slapstick while Baby Herman lived carelessly and innocently. The cartoon ended when a refrigerator dropped on the rabbit's head, causing him to see birds.
"CUT!" the director snapped.
"What!?" Cherry rushed over with Atticus.
"Cut, cut, cut, cut, CUT!" the director continued to hiss.
"What the hell was wrong with that take!?" Baby Herman asked, revealing he had a gruff, old man voice and was not a cute and innocent baby like people believed him to be.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? chapter 6
Benny had taken the group to the movie theater where there were some Goofy cartoons showing. Many children in the audience laughed. Cherry sketched some Goofy characters while Atticus watched with interest and Roger was laughing so hard he was throwing popcorn almost everywhere. To hide away from the many people, they hid in the balcony.
"Boy, did you see that?" Roger asked Eddie in between laughs who was just as stoic as ever. "Nobody takes a wallop like Goofy! What timing, what finesse, what a genius!"
Eddie yanked Roger by the ears once again. "We're supposed to be hidin'. What's wrong with you?"
"What's wrong with YOU?" Roger glared at Eddie. "At least Cherry knows a good joke when she hears one, and Atticus has even made me laugh a few times, and you're the only person in this theater that isn't laughing! Is there nothing that can permeate your impervious puss?"
Eddie flinched and wiped the spit from Roger's speech.
"Hey, Eddie!" Roger made a goofy face, but snapped back qui

Cherry woke up in a flash and saw a kiss mark on Eddie's face with his pants pulled down and Dolores looked very angry.
"What happened?" Cherry looked around.
"Never mind that," Dolores told her, strictly. "Come on, we're getting going!"
"I told you, Dolores, it's not what it looked like!" Eddie cried.
Cherry shrugged, then got ready to go with them back to the bar. Dolores left in a huff and Eddie followed them, getting his jacket on.
"Come on, Dolores!" Eddie called after her. "You don't believe a painted hussy like that could turn my head. She's just trying to get her hands on the rabbit and Atticus."
"That's not all she's trying to get her hands on," Dolores scoffed.
"Now, look, Dolores, listen..." Eddie tried to calm her.
"I hope you're proud of yourself." Cherry glared at Jessica who was in a car not too far from them.
"Honey, it's business, you'll understand when you're older." Jessica told her with her glazed eyes.
"Like I told Mr. Valiant... I'm not b
Who Framed Roger Rabbit 2 PrologueIt was the year 1948 in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. It has been a year since private detective, Eddie Valiant saved Toontown from turning into a freeway by Judge Doom. And since Doom's death from the Dip, the toons were happy and everything was back to normal.
On this day, Eddie was in his office sitting at his desk tapping his fingers and thinking. He was planning to propose to his girlfriend, Dolores. But he didn't know how to do it good.
"No, no, no," said Eddie, shaking his head. "That's too mushy. No one wants a guy whose gross."
Just then, there was a knock on the door.
"Come in," said Eddie. "Door's open."
In came Roger Rabbit.
"Hiya Eddie!" said Roger.
"Oh hi, Roger," said Eddie. "What brings you here?"
"I heard you talking to yourself through the door," said Roger. "Is s-s-something wrong?"
"Just a little problem," said Eddie. "You see, it's been a year since Toontown was saved from disappearing. And since that, things have been happy with the toons. And it's also been
Who Framed Roger Rabbit 2 EpilogueWhen Tuesday morning came, Dolores was in the kitchen packing Emily's school lunch. She packed a ham and cheese sandwich, an apple juice box, a banana, and a chocolate chip cookie. Then she placed everything in Emily's lunchbox.
"Emily!" said Dolores. "Come and get your lunch. You're going to be late for school!"
"Coming mom!" said Emily, running to the kitchen.
"Here you're lunch," said Dolores, giving Emily her lunchbox. "Now run along before the bell rings for school to start."
"Thanks mom," said Emily, giving Dolores a kiss on the cheek. "I'll be back after school. The right time this time."
"Have a good day at school," said Dolores, waving to her daughter. "See you this afternoon."
Emily waved back to her mother and closed the door.
"Well Dolores," said Eddie, walking over to his wife. "Emily is finally off the school again."
"I hope she learned her lesson on the trouble she caused in the past days," said Dolores.
"I'm sure she did," said Eddie. "I don't think she'll get into trou
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? chapter 8
Doom had not been flat dead, he was actually still moving. He had stretchy limbs and stood up, completely unharmed. No human could have possibly survived that. Unless... Doom wasn't a human! He stood himself up, a little wobbly, but he was alive and well!
"Holy smoke, he's a Toon!" Eddie gasped.
"Surprised?" Doom grinned at his enemies.
"Not really," Eddie retorted. "That lame brain freeway idea could only be cooked up by a Toon."
"Not just any Toon!" Doom said in a frightening, sing-song voice. He then went to a helium tank and began to inhale it to make himself no longer flat. He popped back to normal and his hat popped off. His eye balls fell out of his head to reveal burning red eyes and a crazed grin on his face.
Eddie looked scared. Atticus did too, only Cherry wasn't sure why Atticus would react like that. She memorized that the Toon that killed Eddie's brother was exactly like that. Cherry did mostly look startled though because this face was like a face from a nightmare
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? chapter 2
"Where are we going now, Mr. Valiant?" Cherry asked as they left the trolley.
"We're gonna visit a close, personal friend of mine to help crack this case," Eddie replied, then turned to the boys on the back of the trolley and waved to them. "Thanks for the cigarettes!"
Cherry and Atticus followed Eddie. The detective slicked down his hair and tried to look his best as he led the apsiring private detective and cartoonist behind him to a local bar. They walked in and saw a lot of men either shooting pool, sitting together with raunchy conversation, or drinking on a stool to drown their sorrows in the crazy world they live in.
"Hi Harry, you okay?" Eddie greeted one of the bar flies.
"Hi, Eddie." the man, Harry, spoke back, briefly.
Cherry and Atticus felt shaky as a trolley was rumbling from outside, but no one else seemed to be affected by it. Must have grown accustomed to it after dealing with it for so long.
Eddie spotted an officer and placed his cap back on his head, looking d
