Ticks and maggots! Episode 1 Available Now

Episode One: An Apple, A Day

Blister, a Tuff Tail street rat, scores a fresh apple while besting his rival Scab and her rat pack, Spit, Grime, Gag, Scum, and Snot. Blister must then save a timid Silver Whisker rat from wicked alley cats. McCallister, or Muck, reveals a dangerous electric rattrap lurking in the city of Blaakrust’s streets.

Credits: Special thanks to composer Roland Rudzitis whose tune “If Only Walls Could Speak” serves as the Blister and Muck theme song. Thanks also to The Free Music Archive and Monplaisir for the moody music at the end of this episode. Additional music from Kevin MacLeod. SoundIdeas at Pond5 brought the horse, buggy, and calliope. Yio honked the horn. Daniel Simon provided the old puttering engine and the train. Additional public domain sounds from oorlab, reconsider59, schmaddio, and Grantorino551. And finally, I am grateful for guidance and feedback from my family and friends. One for one and all for you!
