In 1947, "toons" act out theatrical cartoon shorts as with live-action films; they regularly interact with real people and animals and reside in Toontown, an animated portion of Los Angeles. Maroon, head of Maroon Cartoon Studios, is concerned about the recent poor acting performances of one of his biggest stars, Roger Rabbit.

Private detective Eddie Valiant and his brother, Teddy, once worked closely with the toons on several famous cases, but after Teddy was killed by a toon, Eddie lapsed into alcoholism and vowed never to work for toons again. Maroon hires Valiant to investigate rumors about Roger's voluptuous toon wife Jessica being romantically involved with businessman and gadgets inventor, Marvin Acme, owner of both Acme Corporation and Toontown.

Community members now feel betrayed, she said, having delayed a legal challenge to a past proposal by the developer amid the negotiations with Acme.

"We will strive to achieve the same for our project." Neighborhood residents have opposed previous proposals for the site, calling them too large and dense for the area, and have lamented the potential loss of the supermarket.

Society Hill Civic Association president Rosanne Loesch said that her group had been in contact with Alterra about the Acme lease negotiations in recent months, but that it did not know about the developer's latest plans until a zoning-permit notice was seen posted at the site.

Valiant runs into Roger's toon co-star, Baby Herman, who believes Roger is innocent and that Acme's missing will, which will give the toons ownership of Toontown, may be the key to his murder.

He then finds Roger hiding in his office, who begs him to help exonerate him.

Addimando said Acme is expected to continue operating at the site until the expiration of its lease in "two years or so." No development or construction is expected before the store's departure, he said.
