Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Canadian animated TV series The Raccoons was shown on America's Disney Channel from 1985 to 1992. Set in the Evergreen forest, the series dealt with the adventures of Ralph, Bert and Melissa Raccoon, who lived in a "Raccoondominium" in the Evergreen Forest. The threesome also managed a weekly newspaper, which caused no end of trouble for the series' resident nemesis, Cyril Sneer (who looked like a wolf in some scenes, and like an aardvark in others). Before the series proper made its US TV debut, a pair of Raccoons specials were syndicated to local stations. In Christmas Raccoons, Cyril Sneer attempts to harvest all the trees in Evergreen forest for his own profit. His plans are scotched by Ralph, Bert and Melissa-and it's still two days before Christmas!
