Storyline

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

One of the best cartoons of the 80's, next to Transformers of course.
17 October 2000 | by (Calgary, Alberta Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty cool cartoon. It was a little on the enviro side but it was still cool. And you got to love the theme song. And Cyrial Sneer makes me laugh. I can't wait to see the other half of the show that I hear about. My favorite character of course is Bert. He's so much more full of adventure than the rest of the characters and is the one that usually ultimately saves the day. So if you want to see some cool Canadian cartoons. Look for this one if you can.
