“Awww, aren't they so cute”
The Raccoons was a Canadian children's TV series that ran between 1985 - 1991. It was originally an animated cartoon, but during The Great Canadian Arthritis Epidemic of 1986/87 it returned to the classic 'Guys in Suits' look made famous by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films. It returned to the old animated style in late 1989 when production was moved to eastern Belarus.
It was originally titled The Rock-Ons, and portrayed, in humorous and easily digestible 25 minute episodes, the life of the then struggling British Heavy Metal band Iron Maiden, who were trying to forge a career on the infamous Canadian Rural Progressive Rock And Punk Circuit on the outskirts of Winnipeg. Due to poor viewing figures and the massive commercial success of Winnie the Pooh at the time, the decision was made to switch the subject of the show to a family of raccoons and over the next 12 series they gradually filtered out any references to rock and roll completely.
Famous character Raccoon Bert actually had super powers. He was the first animal to greet the European barbarians when they first set foot on the Super Island, now known as the Kingdom of Cape Breton. His first encounter was with the Honorable John Boutilier Cabot Trail more than 8000 years ago.
Later Role of the Antagonist
It is rumored that Stephen Harper has tried to get Sneer killed or at least thrown in prison, but this may be unfounded, paranoid gossip. One unconfirmed report says that a sniper tried to shoot Sneer under Harper's orders.
