Now, before I rate this... do you pinky-promise this is not a dupe?

RARITYCATCHME!

Xenocide
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.
spiteful crow
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.
Triggerbaby
I remember all the promotion this series received as ABC suffered from The Expectations.
Xenocide
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.

The only thing I remember about this show was that the 1992 Sears Wish Book had a Capitol Critters sleeping bag, right next to "airbrushed unicorn" and...probably something like Terminator or Dylan from 90210.

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.
The Townleybomb
They'd terminate them without mercy. It's actually not an uncommon thing. My aunt had them, and they're real assholes. She let them be because they were so 'cute' and 'amazing', and they turned around and got themselves a lawyer, established squatter's rights once they'd been there long enough and forced her to put them on the deed. Then the one fell down when he was drinking, sued her for whiplash and took her for a hundred K. Yeah, that little mouse lawyer was real cute with his little suit and his little briefcase, wasn't he, aunt Ellie?

Xenocide
Your aunt should have hired some Borrowers to represent her. They know how to deal with this sort of shit.

Binro the Heretic
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.
TheSupafly
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?
Caminante Nocturno
14,000 drawings of WHAT?!?

dairyqueenlatifah
Oh god, why did you remind me of that terrible MC Hammer debacle?
