Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's RAT FINK!
Every finkster knows 'Big Daddy' Roth originally conceived his most beloved critter as "the antithesis of Mickey Mouse". Mickey was kid-friendly with a super positive attitude while The Fink was filthy, dangerous and maybe insane. Mickey looked like a bunch of squeaky-clean balloons. Rat Fink looked like, well... a gigantic RAT! He had a long, nasty-lookin' snout filled with razor-sharp fangs, sickening grey-green skin and huge hairy ears. He was clacky-clawed, covered with warts and surrounded by buzzing flies - and boy did we love him for it!
That's the way Big Daddy originally drew him, but somewhere along the line RF got toned down quite a bit. The Revell company did a great job on the model but let's face it, any injection molded commercially produced kit, especially in the early 60s, couldn't truly capture the gnarly, fun-tastic detail of those original Roth drawings... and maybe they didn't want to?
Here are some TexFX versions of Rat Fink, the way Big Daddy drew him to be: smelly, sweaty, snouty, snarly, gnarly, lumpy, lazy, loathsome an unbe-LEEV-ably, OVER-THE-TOP HAIRBALL! The Anti-Mickey Mouse!
