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 <>

This show just plain ruled
22 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'The Raccoons' was the best! Now this was the best show that ever aired on the Disney Channel, and it's funny because as soon as it was taken off, Disney Channel just wasn't quite the same (though it was still cool because they still showed obscure animated specials and movies!).

This was hands down the best cartoon of the '80s. There were a lot of fantastic cartoons, but this was the coolest one (though 'Muppet Babies' is way up there too). The animation's not cheaply done, the songs were great and added a lot of feel to the show, and the characters were both cute and interesting. It was also the only Canadian cartoon to be produced entirely within the country (just an interesting fact).

My favorite episode is probably the one where Lisa takes up smoking under pressure from an old friend. It was touching, but not overly preachy. You could really learn a lot from this show, and it really needs to be either put back on American TV or released on DVD.
