* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Justified, as this was an adult cartoon that looked as if it could be for kids (like ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''). The show later reran on Creator/CartoonNetwork late at night in its pre-AdultSwim days.

This show was one of a trio (joining ''Family Dog'' and ''WesternAnimation/FishPolice'') of animated shows from the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) trying to cash in on the early 1990s success of FOX's ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' by making a primetime animated show that looked like Saturday morning fare, but had social satire and adult themes. For better or worse, all three shows barely made it to season two and, outside of being considered cult classics today, aren't remembered fondly (or at all). ''The Simpsons'' even had a sight gag on their third "WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror" episode where this cartoon, along with ''Family Dog'' and ''Fish Police'' are seen on gravestones at the pet cemetary.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Most likely because of the show's failure, this show has yet to appear on official DVD, or any home video of any kind. The only way to watch it is on YouTube and by downloading it from a website, sourced from people who taped it when it was on the air.

* FantasticRacism: The rats aren't too fond of the cockroaches.



* MoodWhiplash: Part of the series' problem is that whenever it tries telling a moving story, it keeps getting undercut with standard cartoon slapstick hyjinks and cat and mouse cliches.
