Costumes, props and models from Who Framed Roger Rabbit...

The 1988 fantasy-comedy-noir, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, combined live-action and animation, so that Bob Hoskins detective 'Eddie Valiant' interacted with both cartoon characters and humans to solve the unique murder mystery.

In the movie, the 'Toons' who live in 'Toontown' can survive all manner of physical abuse, but the villainous 'Judge Doom' discovers a mixture of chemicals which can kill the Toons when they are submerged in it, called 'Dip'.
