Run With Us Productions launches the series in Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and the U.K.; now streaming in three languages.
Run With Us Productions has launched the restored and remastered award-winning classic animated series and specials The Raccoons on The Roku Channel, now streaming in English, French, and Spanish in Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and the U.K. on the platform’s AVOD offerings.
Created in 1985, the animated television series follows the day-to-day lives of three raccoons, Bert, Melissa, and Ralph, their friend Cedric the aardvark, and his father, Cyril Sneer, whose constant desire for fortune causes many conflicts in “The Evergreen Forest.”
“The Raccoons was one of my favorite animated series growing up, and we are proud that The Roku Channel is the first streaming platform bringing the remastered version to our audience in English, French, and Spanish,” said Roku VP Content Acquisition & Programming, Jennifer Vaux. "This series is a fantastic addition to our AVOD offering across all our international territories."
"We are excited to be relaunching the completely restored and remastered The Raccoons series and specials in partnership with The Roku Channel,” added Run With Us Productions CEO Kevin Gillis. “The Roku Channel is the first platform to be introducing the remastered characters and stories in three languages to the United States, Mexico, the U.K., and Canada.”
All 65 half-hours of The Raccoons series and specials have been restored and remastered from original 35mm film elements. The technical undertaking involved assets and restoration experts in four countries on three continents.
The series and specials originally aired in over 180 territories and were known for exploring themes such as the environment, pollution, the importance of family and friends, kindness, bullying, and sharing.
