Those Faucet Nosed Raccoons


In the mid-80s, CBC aired a cartoon called "The Raccoons".  Bert Raccoon was the hero and Cyril Sneer was the bad guy.  I loved the fact Bert and Cyril had these faucet-like noses.

The raccoon named Lisa, introduced late in the series, was actually voiced by Lisa Lougheed who also sang the song "Run With Us" that appeared as the theme song.  Lisa Lougheed was a fixture on MuchMusic for a brief period in the late 80s and she attended the Etobicoke School of the Arts.  Fellow Canadians with a good memory might remember "Love Vibe".

Here's a Raccoons flashback.  Enjoy your return to Evergreen Forest.
