The Raccoons still holds up wonderfully as a thoughtfully written, lovingly made and intelligent children's series; on current viewings, it's immediately clear what made you wake up without fail on a Saturday morning to follow Bert, Cedric and Co's adventures. Warm, funny characters, with an excellent sense of daring mean these are absolutely worth revisiting, or introducing to a newer generation of fans.

I'm delighted that this release doesn't disappoint - the episodes look bright, clean and sharp, and the whole pacakge seems put together with such care and affection. The classy looking outer-slipcase with different case art inside (plus an episode guide leaflet) ooze quality.

The series itself is still finding it's feet format-wise, as Dan the forest ranger and his kids frame quite a few of the earliest episodes, but producers soon found that the animal characters more than carried the show on their own; their antics are epic in scale right from the start. These shows are loaded with gentle social commentary and stories that have real consequence to them, engaging the audience straight away. Let's hope that this first volume sells well enough to ensure the even-better subsequent seasons see similarly excellent releases too! Reccommended without question.

I bought this DVD for my Boyfriend who loved the Racoons as a kid and still does now, I unfortunately missed it so getting him the DVD was the first time I've ever seen The Racoons, I admit I felt kind of silly being 21 years old and watching kids cartoons but I loved it!
It's beautifully written, graceful and exactly what kids (and adults!) can enjoy! I'm miffed I missed out on it as a child!
It's a great, uplifting Cartoon that everybody should watch and I personally think it should be aired again on TV as they don't make Cartoon this good anymore!
Now, thanks to my boyfriend, I'm a Racoons fan... and the title music is ace! :)

Childhood memories and more. The theme song to this just kicks out the memories I have of this animation. It came on BBC1 at 8 or 8:30. I would ALWAYS be awake for it. Good times. Yeah, if you like 80s cartoons, this is a worth while buy, that you should keep always. Let you kids watch it too =D

Though if your child is like Burt Raccoon, then maybe you shouldn't. They may get ideas from him...

I bought this for my grandson after hearing the theme tune and remembering my own children sitting down engrossed with this cartoon series. Good, clean fun from the eighties. The graphics are not as involved and detailed as cartoons produced today, but my son, who is over thirty, can't wait to see it again after all these years.

I remember watching this when I was growing up, I loved it then and I love it now, the series has a very subtle environmental message combined with wonderful storylines and great characters, Bert Raccoon is one of the greatest characters of nostalgic cartoons, just his voice alone makes you want to join in the adventure, even today, kids will love this series, highly recommended, and if this comment reaches the owners of the series, please release series 3-5 and the specials on DVD as soon as possible!

Despite being a 35 year old man, I thoroughly enjoyed watching this. Having not seen any episodes since the mid 80's, it was good to catch up with Burt and Cyril Sneer. It was like I was back in the gang again and my wife and miserable life were a distant memory. One thing I did realise though was that Burt isn't actually pure bred raccoon. He is a cross between an aardvark (Which is what Cyril Sneer is) and a raccoon. If you look at his nose, it's the same as Cyril Sneers' but with a raccoon marking to it. If you have a look at the other Raccoon, they have smaller, different noses.

Is Cyril Sneer Burt's real father?

Remember those Saturday mornings when The Raccoons came on before 'Going Live' or 'Live and Kicking' on BBC1? If not and if you want to remember those good old days, then defenatily buy this DVD set. All 11 episodes from Season 1 of this classic series from the 80's and early 90's is here on these 2 disks, plus some bonus features like 'Create A Scene' and 'Character Bios' (which were taken from the Canadian Morningstar DVD's) plus Raccoon-A-Roma (DVD ROM) content that is accesseble from your computer. The menus look awsome. Plus a booklet with episode synoposis for each episode. Hopefully Seasons 2-5 won't be far behind and possibly even the specials. But this is a superb start to your Raccoons collection on DVD.

Long after the US Release, England gets a Raccoons DVD Set! This contents the First Series in great quailty with some special features which.. while a nice touch (cheap since they come from the US release) aren't really worth too much due to some wrong information and such like. But it is worth it for the Complete First Series!

The only other let down in this set is that it is JUST the First Series. It would be nice if it was a 4 disc set with the Oringal 4 Specials (Christmas Raccoons, Raccoons on Ice, Raccoons and the Lost Star & Racoons: Let's Dance) but sadly, we must all just put up with our treasured VHS copies for now. There are a couple of other small let downs in the Specials features since some of the 'pictures' and such like are from either the oringal Specials or later shows, and the cover makes one hell of a mistake in showing the wrong screenshots and even Lisa Raccoon, how doesn't appear till much later (Voice by Lisa Lougheed, the Second Series+ Singer). But let none of this put you off buying a show which is very underrated by the fact that it has rarely been giving a good showing IN ORDER, in the UK.

Lets Hope they carry on the good work with Series 2 very soon.
