Now, before I rate this... do you pinky-promise this is not a dupe?
The main thing I remember about this show is that there was a society of cockroaches who lived in the feces-infested tunnels underneath the mice, and they all talked and acted like stereotypical black people. Yep.
pretty sure there was an episode with a couple of stereotypically Jewish roaches, too.
An American Tail meets a steaming pile of dog shit. FIVE STARS!!

I'm glad Neil Patrick Harris' career was able to recover from this.
Bobcat Goldthwait was not so fortunate.
I remember all the promotion this series received as ABC suffered from The Expectations.
I distinctly remember a long cross-promotional spot with Home Improvement, where Tim (THE TOOL MAN) Tailor is in the kitchen, and his wife sees a rat and jumps horrified into his arms like she's Scooby Doo and he's Shaggy.
Only it turns out it's one of the cartoon rats from Capital Critters, and he's just there to say hi! And then Tim (THE TOOL MAN) Tailor laughs at his silly retard wife for being scared of a talking Doogie Houser rat. And then the rat exchanges hilarious banter with Tim (THE COKE MULE) Tailor, and then they break the fourth wall and command the viewer to stay tuned for Capital Critters.
In summation: More like Capital SHITTERS, am I right?
The only thing I remember about this show is the advertising with the rat saying "no freaking way" over and over until finally the ad changed to "no stinking way" due to an outcry from some demographic of pointless people somewhere.
Of course, now that I flip through this video, this may not have been that cartoon, and now I wonder what cartoon that was.
I wonder how exterminators would actually react if they noticed that the group of mice they had just exterminated were all wearing tiny clothes and had built themselves mouse furniture.
Your aunt should have hired some Borrowers to represent her. They know how to deal with this sort of shit.

No, it's the borribles who REALLY know how to deal with talking rats.
Better yet, if you can pull the right strings, head over to the National Institute of Mental Health.
I remember at the end of a lot of shows in the 90s, the "Steven Bocho Productions" bumper would play at the end, and it was a guy playing a violin. At the end of this show however, it was an animated mouse playing said violin.
Aside of that, all I can recall about the show is a bunch of talking roaches and some hippie mouse with dreadlocks that hung out with them.
Oh finally, I have been trying to remember the name to this show ever since I was a kid.

I remember Capitol Critters and Fish Police being shilled in the February 1992 issue of Disney Adventures:

Disney tried to sell kids on some real dreck back then - CC, FP, Scorch, Tequila and Bonetti. Also, 14,000 drawings in Hammerman? Really?
