Benny the Toon taxi
To create the live-action for the cartoon taxi in Who Framed Roger Rabbit a small off-road vehicle was used. The actor, Bob Hoskins, holds a dummy steering wheel while the real driver sits at the back dressed in black. The spare wheel at the back of the cartoon taxi is used to hide the driver’s head.
