Ratburger follows a young girl called Zoe, who has a stepmother that despises her, a dad who's never around and has a miserable time at the hands of Tina Trotts, the school bully. Her only chum is Harry, until she discovers a baby rat in her bedroom she names him Armitage and they quickly become firm friends.

Zoe also discovers he's no ordinary rat - he's a rat that can dance. She sets out to show off her rodent pal's skill at the school talent show but her stepmother and shifty burger man Burt have other ideas, which include throwing Armitage into the mincer and putting rat burgers on the menu.
