This is the first and (only) Roger Rabbit short with a complete ending all others were "interrupted" halfway. See more »
When Baby Herman first swallows the rattle, Roger panics and screams for somebody to call 9-1-1. However, in the end when it reverts to the "real world", the setting is the same 1940s setting as "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" - 9-1-1 wasn't even proposed as an emergency number in the United States until 1968.

Don't worry about a thing. I've learned my lesson! I'm a reformed rabbit, a better bunny, a happy hare.

PERHAPS IT WAS done to see if we could bear witness to a sort of Renaissance of the Theatrical Cartoon Short, or maybe it was just made in order to ca$h in on the popularity of WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT?. In either case, we're happy that the short and subsequent cartoons were produced.
SOME HAVE EXPRESSED disappointment at the ROGER RABBIT/BABY HERMAN Cartoons by stating that they were not like the ROGER RABBIT feature film. To them we must remind them that the cartoons are not on the same level budgetarily or otherwise. The cartoons are just that, cartoons. They exist in order to give a little variety to the program.
BEYOND THE REALM of being a warm-up and laugh getter for the movie audience, we must realize that there is yet another dimension to these latter-day animations. In addition to the usual aspects of a cartoon's having funny characters, snappy hip dialogue, over the top sight gags and a lively soundtrack featuring both appropriately chosen music and befitting sound effects; we have yet another complex element here.
WE MUST KEEP in mind that for whatever reason they were made, their genesis was steeped in satire and parody. Whereas the ROGER RABBIT Feature was (among other things) a satire of the Hollywood and indeed the whole American scene, the resulting shorts were driven by their need and purpose of parodying the work of icons of the animation art such as: Walt Disney, Chuck Jones, Ub Iwerks, Tex Avery, Fritz Freleng, Bob Clampett, etc., etc., etc........
AS FOR OUR opinion, both Schultz and myself highly approve and wish that the series would continue.
