Roland Rat!

Look what I got in the mail this week!






For those of you who don't remember, Roland Rat (aka Roland Rat Superstar) was a puppet from the early 80s who was credited with saving a TV station. Considering the bad press rats normally get, I think this is a noteworthy achievement and I respect him a lot for it. This is why I'm so pleased to have brought back a bit of my childhood with this plush. I know I like to blame The Secret of NIMH, but Roland might be the real reason I'm a rat. This is not to say he was a good role model for rats; he was arrogant and rude, but his fans (me among them) loved him for it. He wasn't afraid to speak his mind, even if it was usually to tell you how famous he is.
