Characters: The Raccoons

Bert Raccoon

  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": Bert's trademark red-and-yellow sweater bears his initial.
  • The Hero
  • Keet
  • Man Child: Bert's the same age as Ralph and Melissa, both already married. They all attended the same school, the same grade along with Cedric Sneer. They all graduated from college. So, all of them must be about 25 to 30 years old. Also Bert doesn't live at his own home, Ralph and Melissa let him stay with them. However, almost every chapter we see Bert playing dangerous antics and acting as if he's still a teenager, if not a kid.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Peanut butter.
  • Zany Scheme: Usually comes up with one once an episode.

Ralph & Melissa Raccoon

Bentley Raccoon

Lisa Raccoon

Cedric Sneer

Sophia Tutu



Cyril Sneer

  • Bad Boss: Was this to a degree early on. As he softens up, the pigs commit atrocities that are actually fully deserving of Cyril's frustration at times - what they do in "The One That Got Away" for instance.
  • Big Bad: To start with...
  • Character Development: The most notable case in the series. Most of his other tropes explain it all.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: In the early seasons at least - not so much as the show progresses.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's awesome at this.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: His son, Cedric Sneer.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Throughout the series, Cyril has lines he will not cross when it comes to making profits and, more than once, he makes sacrifices for the greater good, especially when it comes to his son, Cedric. It gets to the point where, in the later seasons, the 'evil' part is practically gone.
    • It shows in "The One That Got Away" when he was furious about losing the beloved fishing pond to toxic waste and when he found out it was the pigs who did it as a moonlighting job, he started a rant that shows how much he cares.
    Cyril: You want money? Here! Here's lots of money! Take it all! Take some more! Just give me back the fishing hole! Can you do that? Can you give me a price on that? Can you?
  • Flanderization: Inverted - whilst his lust for profits/money is a recurring trait, the early seasons is when it's at its peak.
  • Karmic Jackpot: The nicer Cyril got in the series, the more his luck improved because his proper moral choices.
  • Kick the Dog: Amongst most of his actions in the early episodes, he literally does this to his pet dog, Snag.
  • Large Ham: Just hear him talk, or laugh!
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Received both sides of the karma "coin" throughout the series. See Karmic Jackpot above.
  • Pet the Dog: Does this more often in the later seasons.
  • Took a Level in Kindness
  • Villain Antagonist > Anti-Villain > Anti-Hero


The Pigs

  • Anti-Villains
  • No Name Given: Subverted, while they are very rarely addressed by name, they are in fact called Floyd, Lloyd and Lloyd. Fanon has one of the Lloyds named Boyd.
  • One Steve Limit: Defied, see above.
  • Yes-Man: Though they try to defy Cyril later on in the series.
