Judge Doom has just arrived at the Acme Warehouse, the site of Marvin Acme's death, where a toon has dropped a safe on his head. Tall, dressed in black, and with an overly imposing look and with a name like "Judge Doom", it's pretty clear this man is not someone to mess around with. Introducing himself and his weasel thugs to Eddie Valiant and the police lieutenant, he promises to find Roger Rabbit, who has been labelled as the perpetrator of the crime.
Judge Doom is interrupted in his statement by a cute, squeaking toon shoe that had gone astray earlier, when a cop accidentally knocked over a box of live toon props. It nuzzles the Judge’s his leg affectionately like a kitten.
However, rather then simply put it back in its box, Doom decides to make a rather sadistic and utterly unsettling demonstration of his brutality. He puts on a rubber glove, grabs the toon shoe and slowly lowers it into a barrel filled with what we learn is a concoction made from various paint thinners (turpentine, acetone, and benzene) called "Dip".
The toon shoe squeaks out in terror as it is lowered into the deadly acid, with its mouth being lowered in first. The shoe, no longer able to cry out anymore, can only whimper helplessly as Doom mercilessly lowers it in further and its body dissolves in the chemicals, until there is nothing left but gooey red paint around Doom's glove. Eddie Valiant is both horrified and speechless at Doom's actions.
This death seemed little more then senseless cruelty (and possibly to traumatize young children watching the film) as the shoe had done nothing wrong, let alone anything to deserve such a cruel fate.
