In 1993, a major exhibition was held at the Julie Rico Gallery in Santa Monica shortly after the Laguna Museum show "Kustom Kulture". It was at this time that the low brow art movement began to take on steam. Featured in the exhibition titled, "Rat Fink Meets Fred Flypogger Meets Cootchy Cooty" were Roth, Willams, and Mouse and their creations. The L.A. Times placed Roth's Rat Fink on the cover of the Culture section December 20, 1993 with a full article about the entire exhibition. The title reflects a secret. Stanley Mouse never exhibited with Ed Big Daddy Roth. Primarily because Ed used Stanley\'s images of Freddy Flypogger in a coloring book Ed bought from Stanley then created the Rat Fink. Ed was not a great painter or drawer. He was a genius at creating new ideas. So ED enlisted the help of Jean Jacques Bastarache to create the paintings of his ideas. Although I have to add that the Julie Rico Gallery crew came up with the ideas for the paintings to use for Ed to create something funny with the Ratfink to do on them. Ed came up with the funny element. Prints were sent to Jean J Bastarache so he could create paintings of them. Most of them have handwriting by Ed on them. Ed's incredible energy can be felt in these prints. Ed was a genius.
