Synopsis for "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"

In a world where animated cartoon characters and humans co-exist, private detective Eddie Valiant is hired by the head of Maroon Cartoon Studios to get pictures of Jessica Rabbit, the wife of Maroon Cartoon star Roger Rabbit, cheating on Roger with Marvin "The Gag King" Acme. Valiant gets the pictures of Jessica and Marvin playing patty cake, and Roger is heartbroken at the evidence. The next morning, The Gag King is found dead inside his warehouse and clues lead Los Angeles police, Judge Doom, and his Toon Patrol to believe that Roger Rabbit killed Marvin out of anger. Roger seeks help from Valiant to clear his name, and two end up discovering a plot that could destroy the home of the toons, Toon Town, and wipe it completely off the map.
