the raccoons series one
What a superb dvd collection! I just had to buy it. Such good memories and lovely collection to watch. If you love your old school childrens programmes this is one you should get.
Close, but no cigar
Whilst it was awsome to see this on DVD, have all those memories flood back, and look at the nicely designed menus and the cover-art, there was one thing that dissapointed. The extras. Mainly the lack of them. Now, I'm not a biggy for extras, but nowadays with DVDs, it's something that we'll take for granted. This has a big lack of extras, most of them being very generic and bland things, usually involving still screens and lots of text. Not my idea of fun. It also works as a DVD-Rom, so you can use it on your PC. Whilst I used one the wallpapers, I had to trim it myself. They left the photo-outline in. Quite dissapointing. As for the episodes, they all look crisp and are just as enjoyable to watch as they were on BBC one when you were a little kid, eating your cereal and waiting to go to School... But in all seriousness, you would buy this mainly for the episodes, and so you should! LimbuzzardRead full review
The Raccoons - Series 1
For those who lived for this cult 80s series or maybe you missed it, this is perfect for a whole new generation! Songs and good story lines with a moral.
A stunning DVD series, glad season 2 is on the way
Being a big retro cartoon fan, this is the perfect DVD set. Picture quality is great and the programme brings back a lot of memories. It is well presented and is well worth the buy for anyone who collects cartoons from their younger days. And for anyone worrying if the other series will get released, the good news is that series 2 is listed on Amazon as due for release on the 1st September so this makes the cartoon even more collectable in myopinion. Some cartoons get the first volume and it stops, look at series 2 of Willy Fog, but this is hopefully going all the way to the end of the show. Plus this cartoon had some of the best ending music ever.
This was actually bought for my husband as he was always a fan this is an all round family show even my kids love the raccoons an dislike cyril. I would recommend this for people with little kids as they will be entralled with all of the characters
