Roger Rabbit is a fictional character who originated in the 1981 novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit, which was adapted in the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

History

By October 21, 2015, a Roger Rabbit doll could be seen in the display window of the Blast from the Past memorabilia/antique store as Marty McFly went to buy the Grays Sports Almanac.

Being from 1985, Marty would not have recognized the character as, in his timeline, Who Framed Roger Rabbit was still three years away.

References to Back to the Future in Who Framed Roger Rabbit

  • In a scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the Toon Patrol weasels chase Eddie Vailiant and Roger Rabbit (who are driving Benny the Cab) in their paddy wagon. When the Toon Patrol paddy wagon speed towards Benny, Smarty (the weasel driving the paddy wagon) says "I'm gonna ram him!". In Back to the Future, Biff Tannen says this, during the skateboard chase where Marty hangs onto the front of Biff's convertible.
  • When Judge Doom tells Eddie, Roger and Jessica about his plan to bulldoze Toontown & build a freeway in its place, he gloats about "Tire salons, automobile dealerships and wonderful, wonderful billboards reaching as far as the eye can see". In Back to the Future, Doc tells Marty that Old Man Peabody planted pine trees on his ranch "as far as the eye can see". Ironically, Judge Doom and Doc were both played by Christopher Lloyd.
