Benny the Cab is a supporting character in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He is portrayed as a gruff, outspoken, middle-aged character.
He is voiced by Charles Fleischer who also voiced Roger Rabbit in the film.
Role in the film
He first appears when Eddie Valiant and Roger Rabbit escape from Judge Doom and the Toon Patrol in the bar, and they notice he's been locked up by the Toon Patrol in their paddy wagon for driving on the sidewalk. They free him and he helps them escape from them and takes them to a theatre to hide from them.
He later appears when Eddie and Jessica Rabbit are trying to escape from the Toon Patrol (and when Eddie accidentally sticks his thumb out), and tries to help them escape, but then, Judge Doom appears again and spills Dip all over the road, making Benny get injured and skids across the road and crashes into a pole. After Eddie and Jessica get taken hostage, Benny still lies injured until Roger arrives in Eddie's totaled car and Benny takes the wheel in Eddie's car.
They arrive at the Acme Factory where he drops Roger off while he goes for help. He is last shown at the end of the film, in the Acme factory, as he arrives with Dolores, Lt. Santino, and other policemen investigating what happened, and rejoicing over the discovery of Marvin Acme's will.
