Rat Fink
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rat Fink by Steve Fiorilla for an Ed Roth catalog cover
Rat Fink is one of the several hot-rod characters created by one of the originators of Kustom Kulture, Ed ''Big Daddy'' Roth. After he placed Rat Fink on an airbrushed monster shirt, the character soon came to symbolize the entire hot-rod / Kustom Kulture scene of the 1950s and 1960s.

The Rat Fink is a green, depraved looking mouse with bulging, bloodshot eyes, an oversized mouth with yellowed, narrow teeth, and a red T-shirt with yellow ''R.F.'' on it. Other artists associated with Roth also drew the character, including Rat Fink Comix artist R.K. Sloane and Steve Fiorilla, who illustrated Roth's catalogs. Rat Fink and Roth are featured in Ron Mann's documentary film Tales of the Rat Fink (2006). Jeannette Catsoulis reviewed in The New York Times: Ogling fins and drooling over fenders, the movie traces the colorful history of the hot rod from speed machine to babe magnet and, finally, museum piece and collector's item. Along the way we learn of Mr. Roth's lucrative idea to paint hideous monsters including the Rat Fink of the title on children's T-shirts, a sartorial trend that, in the 1960's, had the added benefit of getting their wearers banned from school, thus giving them more time to play with Mr. Roth's model car kits.

Rat Fink's Dad, Rat Funk, by Steve Fiorilla
More instructive about the obsessions of teenage boys than the allure of steel and wheel, ''Tales of the Rat Fink'' punctuates Michael Roberts's eyeball searing animation with a haphazard selection of old newsreels, photographs and automobile ads. Lending their voices to the cars themselves, a trick Mr. Roth, who died in 2001, might have found a tad cutesy, is an appropriately eclectic bunch of celebrities, including Tom Wolfe (who celebrated Mr. Roth in ''The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby'') and Ann-Margret, while a strangely listless John Goodman serves as the voice of Mr. Roth. ''Cars should have personality,'' he tells us, in a tone that suggests he's struggling to locate his own.

A Rat Fink revival in the late 1980s and the 1990s centered around the West Coast grunge / punk rock movements. The term fink was originally underworld slang for an informer, comparable to ''stool pigeon'', and ratfink is an intensified version of ''fink.'' By the time Roth used this name for a character, the term had started to pass into more general usage.
