Storyline

In the Evergreen Forest, there is a group of raccoons, the most rambuctious being Bert. Their home is peaceful and beautiful, but also threatened by the greedy aardvark industrialist, Cyrial Sneer, who wants to destroy the forest for his own profit. Together with some dog friends and Cydric Sneer, Cyrial's sympathetic son, they work to oppose Cyrial through their newspaper and environmental initiatives. As the series progresses, they eventually him win over as they find themselves allied against other environmental dangers and enemies. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

A Part Of Canadian Heritage
14 August 2006 | by (Saskatoon) – See all my reviews

First of all, I must say that I love this show. I have since I was 3, and I always will. Being born in 1992, I got to see the best of late 1980s television, and this just happened to be one of those shows. My mother says that I rarely watched The Raccoons, but I can very well recall seeing many episodes. "The Evergreen Grandprix" and "Blast From The Past" come to mind.

Another thing I really like about the show is the fact that they made their own music and songs. 98% of all episodes featured a very well done musical number. The theme song is very good as well, having an original sound.

The Raccoons was the first TV series produced entirely with in Canada, and managed a successful six year run from 1985 to 1991. All Canadians should be proud! I sure am!

The last time I managed to see The Raccoons on national television would have been in July, 2002, around 7:30am or so on APTN. Since then, I haven't seen it anywhere since then. I now own both DVD box sets, and they were both worthy investments. Recommended!
