Exceeded my expectations
14 December 2012 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

I was fully prepared to hate The Christmas Raccoons as I wasn't much of a fan of the series when I was a kid, thankfully it turned out to be very entertaining and I never once looked at the clock. This is mainly due to the massive cuteness of Schaeffer, the Old English Sheepdog.

On Xmas Eve Eve a forest ranger is alerted to the fact that someone is cutting down all the trees, including the home of three raccoons. As he goes to investigate his two children and Schaeffer use the situation to their advantage and bring home a fallen evergreen to turn into the Xmas tree that they were previously denied. Shaeffer goes off on his own with the Raccoons and foils the lumberjacking plans of crooked aardvark Cyril Sneer.

It sounds like kindergarten stuff, but this Xmas Special was made in a time when cartoons didn't pander to kids or insult their intelligence, and the Xmas atmosphere and snow-covered landscapes give it nice cosy feel. Certainly one to watch again.
