'''''Ratz''''' is a Franco-Canadian animated series.
Two rats, Rapido and Razmo, are stowaways on the S.S. Wanderer, a cargo ship transporting a huge amount of Gouda cheese. When they're not dealing with the current crisis (often due to themselves, the crew or temporary passengers/cargo), they race throughout the ship using "ratboards", makeshift flying racecars.
!!''Ratz'' provides examples of the following tropes:
* BalloonBelly: Rapido sports one in an episode, after drowning his sorrow in cheese.
* CaptainOblivious: The Captain of the ship, appropriately.
* CartoonCheese: It's more holey than Gouda usually is.
* ConspicuousCG: The smoke from the ratboards, among other things.
* DerangedAnimation: Small wonder, considering it was made by the same studio behind ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGoofs'' and ''WesternAnimation/OggyAndTheCockroaches'', two other French series well-known for their own crazy animation.
* ExplosiveBreeder: A female rabbit in one episode soon swarms the whole ship in white rabbits.
* FlyingCar[=/=]HoverBoard: The ratboards.
** The ratboards seem to be made by strapping jet engines to mousetraps, but an episode shows that the rats don't know what an actual mousetrap is.
** Razmo is a mechanic and creates various gadgets over the course of the series.
* HugeGirlTinyGuy: Svetlana (the Huge Girl), Benny and the Captain (the Tiny Guys).
* NoNameGiven: The Captain is simply named for what he is.
* RedOniBlueOni: [[ColorCodedCharacters Rapido wears red and Razmo wears blue]]. Razmo ''does'' lose his temper on occasion, however.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: Uzed in the zhow'z tytle.
