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 <>

User Reviews

One of the coolest cartoons ever
5 August 2005 | by marksmith16See all my reviews

'The Raccoons' was one of my fave cartoons ever. Many of the episodes were great fun to watch, and Cyril Sneer made an excellent villain. My fave character bar none was and always has been Bert Raccoon, he just steals the show every time with his accident-prone antics! Many of the supporting characters do the show great justice too and the animation is well done for the time. It still looks nice today. The theme music is still as great as it was too.

Overall a very well executed series which has deservedly made DVD in Canada and the USA. All it needs now is a DVD release in the UK as well!
