friends to it. This highlights the opportunity available to all future licensees and retailers and we can't wait to broaden the program even further next year.”

2022 was a big year for “The Raccoons,” finishing the restoration and remastering of all five seasons as well as the four specials that were produced from 1980 to 1991. The newly restored episodes were picked up by Bell Canada’s premier Canadian based streaming service CRAVE TV, with plans underway for additional platforms and to appoint distributors in a number of other territories.  

“We are very excited to see the remastered Raccoons series and specials build on a whole new generation of fans,” says Kevin Gillis, creator, “The Raccoons.” “The shows have never before been seen like this, and the retro style combined with its new high-definition look is a very compelling character and storytelling experience.”
