Who Framed Roger Rabbit (video game)
Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin
|Portrayed by||David Lander|
Smart Ass (voiced by David Lander), is the smart, wisecracking leader of the Toon Patrol. As Judge Doom's lead enforcer, he is the secondary antagonist in Disney/Touchstone's 1988 hit feature hybrid film Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
Smart Ass is ranked a sergeant by Judge Doom. He has brown fur and wears a buttoned-up light pink double-breasted zoot suit jacket with a gold chain in the left pocket, white dress shirt with a reddish pink, bejeweled tie, matching hat, and spats on his feet. His weapon of choice is a revolver, though in the bar scene, he is shown threatening Eddie with a switchblade. He does not appear to have a smoking addiction, like Wheezy, but he does apparently smoke cigars, as shown in his first appearance.
Smart Ass is the secondary antagonist in the film. He is Judge Doom's second-in-command and leader of the weasels of the Toon Patrol. Though very sarcastic, he is the straight-man of the group, possessing the most intelligence and self-control and the least "Toonish" attitude. While he is very antagonistic in the film, he seems to care about the other members of the Toon Patrol, being the first person to warn them about what will happen to them if they do not control their laughter. However, like them, he still enjoys a good laugh, himself, though he still remains the most serious member despite his occasional wisecracking. He commits frequent malapropisms, such as when he says that a tip on Roger's whereabouts has been "corrugated" ("corroborated") by several sources, or when he asks Judge Doom if they should "disresemble" ("disassemble") the bar in search of Roger.
Role in the filmEdit
Smart Ass is the third weasel to die at the end of the film, though not by losing control of his laughter like the others. Upon pointing out a mistake with the lyrics in the song Eddie "entertains" the weasels with, Eddie kicks him in the crotch, sending him flying into the mixer on the Dip machine, where he dissolves and dies.
Roger Rabbit's Car Toon SpinEdit
