Rat-Trap



Here's another British kids strip from the Bronze Age that, like Captain Hurricane, was exactly the same every week, and ran forever, this time in Cor!
Rat-Trap  was supposedly an interactive strip, as each issue the ( fairly useless ) Agents Of BIFFF ( The British Institute For Foiling Felonies ) set out to capture that rotten rodent rapscallion Dr. Rat, by using suggestions ( allegedly ) from the readers, who received a crisp five pound note if their idea was used.
Of course, BIFFF's cunning plan failed every single week, and Dr. Rat escaped while blowing a raspberry at the reader. I always found the artwork on Rat-Trap more than a bit weird, and Dr. Rat himself slightly creepy, which I guess was the point...
