Odd request but there's been odder, so here we go...

Take a look at the packaging on this toy rat:

Can anyone tell me what font's getting used there? I saw it for the first time on a compilation album back in 2000 and have been looking for it ever since, it seems to be popping up in more and more places these days... It's taken sixteen years for me to think of looking for the answer online, whoops.


EDIT:
Here it is, on said compilation:

p.s this is not my item or my listing im using it as an example to show what font i mean because i cant upload images of the font on my forum posts for some reason.

^ Looks a bit like an italic Palatino but I don't think it's an exact match.
