"O.Ratz in Rat in a Hot Tin Can"

Click here to see VIDEO

I found out that “O.Ratz in Rat in a Hot Tin Can” was no longer available on YouTube, so I decided to put the 7 minute cartoon on our own website for a short time. We made the cartoon with Hanna-Barbera in 1995 for Cartoon Network’s “What A Cartoon Show.” Of course, it didn’t go to series, but it was still a lot of fun to make, and we made some long lasting showbiz friends along the way. ..See the video here and our info page on it here.

  1. I remember when I watched this cartoon the first time on Cartoon Network, when CN was a good channell. I just loved! Is this availabe in DVD?

  2. Hey Domenico,

    And we loved making this cartoon! We were saddened earlier this year by the loss of Harvey Korman. He was a wonderful actor and very fun to work with.
    As far as I know, there are no plans to release any of the "What A Cartoon Shorts" on DVD; however, I think a compilation would probably do well. Maybe sometime CN will think so too.
    Thanks for the comment

  3. Sad news you gave me... I remember him from Leslie Nielsen´s Dracula and other cartoons...

  4. Hello, I also remember this show on "What a Cartoon" short series, and it was my favourite I get very surprised when this didn't get the prize for the season. I'm from Argentina and the voices used on this cartoon were very consistent with the characters, a very important item.
    Other thing i remember is that this show was on air by Argentinean winter and I was very gratefull of being in bed while watching it, haha.
    I'm very happy now at my 24 year olds to find the producers blog. So now after almost 10 years, I can give my congratulations to all of you for this animated short!!

  5. What am I saying... 15 years!!
    Please tell me how to get the episode in HQ or something like it.

  6. lol
    I'm argentinian too and I remember this cartoon perfectly from my childhood! O. Ratz is one of my favorites characters ever, I quoted him every cold winter since its debut on latin america CN (1995). The drawing and the lines are hilarious! I'm glad to have this oportunity to tell you how much I liked it, it should have won every available prize!
