TechEmporium has sent along some impressive chiptune versions of Run Wuth Us: in NSF and MP3 formats. Takes me back to my tracking days.

Direct link to Season 1 of the Raccoons on iTunes added to the merchandise page.

Season 1 of the Raccoons on iTunes did well in Canada, so Skywriter has published the first season on iTunes in the US! Press release here. I'll add direct links to it shortly.

Skywriter has published a press release regarding the iTunes deal.

There are a couple of Cyril T-shirts available here.

Great news for Raccoons fans today. From Josh over at Skywriter:

As of Monday December 14, all 11 episodes of Season 1 will be available for sale on iTunes Canada. For now, it will only be available in Canada, but USA and UK will come on board in the early part of next year.

Please write me to show your support -- in particular if there are other regions that have a groundswell of desire for this type of thing (Germany, I'm looking at you), let me know. Also, it looks like digital distribution of the songs/albums might be possible as well, please let me know what the preference on priority is for these. My personal priority 1 is the songs from Lost Star, but I'm open for other arguments.

As it turns out, the Raccoons are huge in Germany. So much so, that they in fact have the entire series on DVD. You read that correctly, Die komplette Zeichentrickserie. Here is further proof: Cover, Discs, Back covers, Back cover detail. So if you speak German, there you go. Prost! The rest of us still have to wait. Thanks to Mario Platz for the info and photos.

Another year goes by! We have a bunch of new information on releases. As expected, Fabulous Films released Season 2 (find it here on Amazon.co.uk). They also seem to have another collection of 3 episodes on DVD here, though it's unclear which 3 are included. Both added to the Merchandise page, along with a bunch of used VHS options I found recently. Note that on that page, you may have to disable AdBlock (Plus) if you're in Firefox, since it uses the iFrames from Amazon. That having been said, great add-on altogether.

14 October, 2008

Pretty quiet earlier, but lately some news from Mark Smith and Ben Rigsby, both of whom got a reply from Fabulous Films about Season 2, saying that it would be released January or February 2009 and that they are currently "waiting on extras".

I don't know if it worked by you posting my email on your site and sales picked up or the person who sent me that message did not know what they were doing.

thank you
anthony

Let's keep up those support emails to Fabulous Films and convince them to release all of the episodes and specials.

Overview

One may now safely refer to me as somewhat of an expert on the Raccoons, mostly thanks to the contributions and continuing efforts of the various people who have made this site what it is today.

The Raccoons productions remain, to my mind, unparalleled in quality and nostalgia. The music is spectacular, and through his genius Kevin Gillis's evergreen world is a place of stars and symphonies.
