So, you're one of the unfortunate souls out there that does not get to see The Raccoons on TV. I feel your pain, brothers and sisters. However, in my ' Raccoon-less ' period, I have brainstormed up some great ideas to tide fans over until The Raccoons should one day make a return to the United States (or wherever in the world you're from). Read on, I hope this section helps all of you.
Write to your local cable company. Try writing to Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, or other channels that would be ideal to aire The Raccoons. The more feedback these big guys get on what viewers want, the more likely they are to comply.
If the cable company doesn't come through for you, get DirectTV. I have heard DirectTV has the TRIO channel which aires The Raccoons. Too expensive? Okay, onto....
Visit my links page and visit other Raccoons sites. I hope you all are crafty folks or at least can afford a photo album, own a printer and a pair of scissors. If not or you're too lazy, go on to Idea Three. Otherwise, read on!
Download as many Raccoons pictures as you can (or want). Print them up on your printer. Cut the pictures out and put them in the photo album. Here's a good challenge to keep your minds busy as well as your Raccoon cravings occupied: Try to fill a whole photo album with Raccoons pictures. Just think, you'll have a very own picture book of your favorite critters! Want more of a challenge? Sort the pictures out in order of episode! That'll keep ya busy ;)
Join The Raccoons mailing list! Here you can talk about anything Raccoons. There are people from all over the world on the list and some will be able to relate to your problem (myself included). Who knows, maybe someone will help out and pitch in an episode.
Go Raccoon Hunting! For the uninformed: Not REAL hunting. What I mean is, go search local video stores for Raccoons videos. I found Hollywood Video as well as Supermarket Video Stores have The Raccoons. Some are even selling the videos! I got Cry Wolf from Hollywood video for $4.99! Sometimes, if the store has no videos for sale but rental only, a polite ask if they would sell the tape to you might do the trick. It's worked for me at one video store.
My best tip is go to the store personally and search the Kids/Family Sections as well as the Sale and Clearance Tables first. If you can't seem to find anything, then ask the clerk to look up The Raccoons. If nothing still shows up, move on to the next video store.
Sometimes, used toy stores might happen to have something from The Raccoons. Never hurts to make either a call or a drive down to investigate. Oh, and I dedicate Idea Four to my poor Fiance whom I dragged all over the city to find Raccoons videos. He is even the one who found Cry Wolf sitting in the clearance bin right when I was ready to call it quits. =)
If all else fails, try eBay. Type in " The Raccoons " under the search space or go back to the main page of my site and click the link. If you are under 18, make sure it is cool with your parents/guardians that you can bid on eBay and agree to a maximum price limit you are willing to spend.
