The in-game phone number.

Status: Lost

Who Framed Roger Rabbit was a 1989 NES game released by LJN based on the 1988 movie of the same name.

In one part of the game, Jessica Rabbit will give Eddie Valiant, the playing character, a phone number (1-800-232-3324). At the time, calling this number in real life would have given the player a recorded message containing hints for the game.

However, the number was eventually disconnected by 1990.[1] By at least 2010 (though the actual date is unknown), this number was used by a sex hotline. This fact was popularly displayed in the Angry Video Game Nerd's second review of the game.

The original message's audio has not been found. According to people who called the number back then, the message was:

"It is shocking the way some neighborhoods are getting. You practically can't walk anywhere without running into stray dogs, cats, and other animals. It makes you wish you carried a piece of meat, a fish bone, or a piece of cheese around with you. The weasel that is guarding Judge Doom's warehouse is the one called Stupid. I've heard that the only thing that'll get him to leave is a quick game of softball. Know any place where you could get a baseball in a hurry?"

It's unknown if the person who said it was Jessica's voice actress (Kathleen Turner) or not. And unless one of the developers or the person who said the lines has a copy of this call, it may be lost forever.
