The Raccoons

Show Summary

Welcome to The Raccoons guide at TV.com.

The Raccoons was an animated show played from 1985 to 1992 on the Canadian Broadcasting Channel (CBC) and Disney. The show started as special half hour episodes brought out each year at Christmas such as 'The Christmas Raccoons', 'The Raccoons on Ice' and 'The Raccoons: Let's Dance' which was a compilation of the previous specials. There was also an hour long special 'The raccoons and the Lost Star' that I believe was shown in two half hour parts. After the success of the specials the series was created using all the same characters, introducing new characters as the series progressed. The series played once a week rather than each year and all the episodes were 25 minutes long.



The show had the basic structure of having three environmentally aware Raccoons, Bert Ralph and Melissa, involved in various adventurous settings to stop the financially minded Cyril Sneer from destroying the forest in his pursuit of self gain. Their friends Schaeffer and Cedric Sneer help them to this end in a majority of episodes. Main storylines revolve around friendship, love and loyalty overcoming personnal gain. These cute characters interact perfectly with one another and although the pictures may be 2D the characterisations certainly are not. Of particular note is the dual nature of Cyril Sneer, the fact that he is not a typical villain without emotion develops through the series. He feels guilt and tries to be a better father even though he doesn't always do this in the best ways.moreless

  • A World of Raccoons and Their fight against Urbanization.

    10
    Somewhere in the Evergreen Forest, is a Energetic Raccoon by the name of Bert the Raccoon, Ralph and Melissa, a happy couple (Who are also raccoons.), and Schaeffer and Broo, the Father-Son team of Sheep Dogs.



    Things would be normal in the forest except for the Tycoon, Cyril Sneer, the Aardvark, and His Yes-Pigs, Lloyd, Floyd, and Boyd. but, Cyril's son, Cedric, is the opposite of His Dad. Shy, friendly, and whatever. And at a Rare occasion, there are other Raccoons like Bentley, a Young prodigy who'd make Bert a Big Brother, Lisa, A Tall Raccoon who Bert has a crush on. and so begins their adventures in the Evergreen Forest.moreless
  • One of the best 80's family cartoons!

    8.3
    When we think about the cool 80's cartoons, we all immediately think about Transformers or Voltron or He-Man but again, there are some forgotten cartoons that we 80's kids watched that thought us about virtues and what's good and what's bad. Racoons is one fine example of that kind of shows. This is defininitely a show which would kids enjoy watching; the characters were funny, and I especialy liked the music. Today, art of making this kind of cartoons is, I'm afraid, forgotten, and it would be nice to see this great classic back on the air, or atleast on DVD. Let our kids enjoy classics like this. Don't let it be completely forgotten!moreless
  • An awesome show that i watched as a little kid and i still miss it.

    9.8
    A great show that i miss. the best episode was when cyril sneer's old buisness partner was coming back to give him what he deserved and cyril freaks out and panics about it. bottom line is this is a great show and sadly missed. hope they come out on DVD sometime.
  • A much missed show. It was absolutely astonishing.

    9.9
    Well, let's say that a couple of days ago someone played "Run with us" from this TV show on an internet radio station I know. When I heard it the series came back to me. I hadn't seen it since I was 8 and now everything was flashing back to me. At the time I was a little ashamed of myself from not having heard from this show since I was 8, and being a member of the furry fandom subculture, when it came over the airwaves, I remembered a close knit group of raccons who lived in Evergreen Forest who were always foiling Cirrel Sneer's fiendish corporate tycoon plans. And I remember loving every minute of it when I was 8. I love the memories still.



    I have just explained the basic outline of the show, but it was a show that I sorely miss now that I have remembered it. I would say to anybody who has not already seen this show to go and buy the DVD. It is a must see.moreless
