About Him

Grew Up… in mystery. Not much is known about the daunting Judge Doom’s past, and that’s just the way he likes it.

Living… as one of the most feared men in Toon Town, which is home to the living, breathing “toons” who star in animated movies. Judge Doom is the creator of the terrible green concoction he calls “Dip,” the only known way to truly kill a toon. Because toons are seen as second-class citizens here in 1947 Hollywood, Judge Doom can dispose of them at his own discretion. Just to make a point, he disintegrates a happy red cartoon shoe. His utter heartlessness is perhaps even more feared than the dreaded sludgy instrument he uses to impose his order.

Profession… judge of Toon Town Superior District Court. He apparently “bought the election,” and rose to power through mischievous means. He stays in power through his gang of henchmen, dubbed the “toon patrol.” Judge Doom treats these weasels like the buffoons they are, hitting them over the head when they laugh too hard, claiming “you’re going to end up dead just like your idiot hyena cousins.”

Interests… destruction, his sick idea of justice. If he could have it his way, most of the happy toons in Toon Town would be melted into nothingness. Judge Doom has a knack for bringing toons out of hiding by starting a classic rhyme—and leaving it unfinished: “Shave and a haircut…”

Relationship Status… single. He doesn’t have a romantic bone in his body, hell-bent on his reign as judge. He gets pleasure purely from seeing others suffer.

Challenge… hunting down Roger Rabbit. His supposed reason is to bring Roger to justice for allegedly killing Toon Town owner Marvin Acme, but it quickly becomes evident that Judge Doom knows more about this case than your average onlooker. He may well have his own reasons for “proving” Roger’s guilt.

Personality… stern and soulless. He might be holding in a whole lot of wackiness under his skin, but on the surface Judge Doom is a cold tyrant. His controlling nature leads him to pull strings behind the scenes, the extent of which is slowly revealed as Roger Rabbit gets closer to establishing his innocence.
