Deleted/Unused Characters

Many additional characters were planned, or at least considered, for inclusion in the film but were ultimately omitted or dropped due to legal issues and/or production limitations. Others managed to appear or make it into the final film, but were either cut out or replaced later on during production and development.

Special Edition DVD Cameos

Numerous characters that did not make cameos in the film made a few on the menus of the Special Edition DVD.

Note: Most characters can be seen in the second disc.

(*) Denotes anachronisms; these characters (or, in the cases of characters such as Tinker Bell and Marvin the Martian, the animated versions of them that appear in the film) were created or adapted to cartoons after 1947. But as screenplay writer Peter S. Seaman said, "The aim was entertainment, not animation history." It has also been argued that the characters may have "existed" in the Toon world before being "discovered" and featured in real productions.

Trivia

Those characters are Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Lampwick from Pinocchio, Willie the Giant, Screwy Squirrel (who was also mentioned in the film), and Felix the Cat (who was also intended to appear in the film on his own).

  • The novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? by Gary K. Wolf (the novel on which the film is based on) mentions original characters from American comic strips, including Dick Tracy (who was originally intended to appear in the film on his own), Snoopy, Blondie and Dagwood Bumstead, Beetle Bailey, and Hägar the Horrible.[1] Bugs Bunny also appears and other characters such as Petunia Pig are mentioned.
  • In the 5th issue of the comic series based on the film, there was an appearance of a character named Percy Pig, which shares the same name of the candy mascot "Percy Pig". However, the comic was published in 1990, while the candy product with the same name was created 2 years after, in 1992.
