Good Riddance! Rats
The Pipes are Calling
Eco, the pest controller, applies his eco-friendly methods to a mischievous group of rats.
There's a plague of rats in town, and the local milk bar is no exception. After watching the effective but highly toxic methods of the SPLAT exterminators across the road, the shopkeeper gives Eco a chance to try his more eco-friendly approach.
Other titles in the series are:
Good Riddance: Air Pollution - An accident leads to a radical redesign of the Eco Van.
Good Riddance: Flies - Eco uses frogs and a spider to combat a pesky fly infestation.
Good Riddance: Snails - An organic garden has been overrun by a mob of hungry snails.
Good Riddance: Termites - Eco combats a nest of termites that are dining on his home.
"Good animation along with humor makes this film enjoyable while providing a lesson in being more ecologically friendly. Recommended"
