Dirty Rat

Dirty Rat is the main antagonist of Lapitch the Little Shoemaker. As his name suggests he is a nasty rat and the archenemy of Lapitch, he was also a shameless thief and vagabond who also had a gang of equally gruesome clowns to act as his henchmen in the series: like many villains in children's stories Dirty Rat is quite proud of his "nasty" reputatio​​n and is likewise despised by almost everyone outwith his criminal gang.
