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>

Nobody's chasing these raccoons out the back door with a broom.
7 December 2009 | by The_Light_TritonSee all my reviews

Cause this show is awesome.

Bert Raccoon lives in evergreen forest, a peaceful, beautiful place full of life. but when he awakes, things change...bigtime. he has a lot of friends, which is good, because without them, he could never deal with Cyril sneer, the Miserable, ugly-looking arsehole whose only want is to make big bucks, even if it means destroying the evergreen forest.

This show goes on the list of Canada's Greatest creations. Also on this list is Trailer park boys, Mr. Dressup, Hockey night in Canada and The Red green show. but i like to think of the raccoons as near the top, because i never actually watched this show in the 80s, because i was never Around in the 80s. i remember watching it through the 90s and loving it.

But there's one ultimate thing that makes The raccoons so enjoyable...Lisa Lougheed. That girl is hot, sings like an angel, dances better than Paula Abdul, and needs to make waves in the entertainment world today.

Bottom line, you need to tune into the raccoons any chance you get.

9/10
