"If you are what you eat, then I only want to eat the good stuff."

Remy, Ratatouille

Remy (also known as Little Chef) is the main protagonist of the beloved Disney/Pixar movie, Ratatouille. He is a blue-gray, average-sized rat who longs to become a chef.

He is voiced by American comedian and actor, Patton Oswalt.

Why He Rocks

  1. He is shown to have a very good sense of smell, which is probably due to his gift and likeness to food.
  2. He adores food and all its various, distinct, and mouth-wateringly delicious qualities.
  3. He has a great talent in cooking.
  4. American actor and comedian, Patton Oswalt, brings a lot of the snarky, vulnerable attributes to his character.
  5. He is another example of Pixar taking normal, ordinary animals and breathing new cartoony, whimsical life into them.
  6. He has an excellent design that rides a fine line between somewhat adorable and somewhat realistic.
  7. In the bittersweet ending of Ratatouille, Remy's lifelong dream finally comes true in which he becomes the secretive head chef at the La Ratatouille bistro in Paris.
