It’s well known that rats are not everybody’s favorite animals, and they are definitely not the first choice of pet for most people. Despite the minor fact that rats carried and spread the plague, they are pretty darn adorable.

Though for being considered vermin, they sure do make cute characters for film and television.

And of course Hollywood would be the one to make rats famous. Here’s a list of some films that feature the more popular, famous rodents.

We may love these rodents, but sadly they are fictional. If you do see a real rat in your home, please call the experts over at Rodent Guys.
