Dedicated to his job, he makes sure people don't sneak backstage to bother the performers in their dressing rooms, especially Jessica Rabbit. He is later seen at the end of the film, celebrating the Toons' victory over Judge Doom.
Bongo can be seen and heard in the queue line of Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin when passing by the Ink and Paint Club door. He opens the window like he does in the film and says one of several different phrases, such as "If you don't know the password, you ain't comin' in. So, amscray!" and "Who do you think you are? Mickey Mouse?".
