Remember how we always thought there wasn't a way to kill a toon? Well, Doom found the way: turpentine, acetone, benzene; he calls it the Dip!

The Dip (a.k.a. Toon Acid) is a green, ghastly chemical invention seen in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It was created by Judge Doom and is feared by all Toons, as it is Doom's preferred method of passing punishment, whether they are deemed innocent or guilty.

According to Lieutenant Santino, it is a mixture of turpentine, acetone and benzene; the former two being paint solvents, and the latter being a natural constituent of crude oil and one of the most basic petrochemicals. While it is relatively harmless to humans (Eddie Valiant was seen running through an ankle-deep pool of it), any toon that comes in contact with it will melt slowly and painfully, and is apparently the only surefire way to kill a toon (although Eddie gets most of the Toon Patrol members to laugh themselves to death).

As a well-deserved poetic justice, Judge Doom ends up being melted himself near the end of the film, after revealing himself to be actually a toon. He also invented a vehicle machine called "The Dipmobile," which would have dissolved all of Toontown into oblivion. Fortunately, it was destroyed by an oncoming toon bullet train.

Only three characters die from the Dip: the Toon Shoe, Smarty and Judge Doom. Benny the Cab comes into contact with it, but survives.

Trivia

  • The Dip is the toon equivalent of the human death penalty.
  • "Thinner" from the Epic Mickey series strongly resembles the Dip.
