We are still exploring the avenues of Toontown in our series of Freeze Frame! posts related to the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Let us leave those dark and claustrophobic side alleys of our prior two posts and return to the zaniness of Toontown's main thoroughfares.
J. Thaddeus Toad has a love of all things fast and furious, as demonstrated by his motor car antics in the 1949 animated feature The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. In Who Framed Roger Rabbit, he trades up to a fire engine and careens across the screen just after Eddie Valiant arrives in Toontown. It is a very, very quick split second cameo, but then again, Toad was never known for sitting still in one place for very long.
A quick eye will spot a number of other cameos in the same scene. Among them, Snow White and the Evil Queen, Fiddler Pig, Fifer Pig, Little Red Riding Hood (from the 1934 Silly Symphony The Big Bad Wolf), Sir Giles and the Reluctant Dragon, both Goofy (on a pogo stick from Victory Vehicles) and his George Geef counterpart, the Big Bad Wolf and the Seven Dwarfs (appropriately enough emerging from the subway station).
