I'd give them the shirt off my back any time!
17 January 2019 | by marcusman48See all my reviews

Truly an entertaining series. Cutting-edge in its day (with its pop-culture savvy humor, it might be considered a forerunner to THE SIMPSONS, and Nancy Cartwright has voiced characters on both!) and with very cute and colorful animal characters (Rick Raccoon was my buddy). My parents bought the action figures for me and I played with them all the time; poor Digger's pointed mole nose suffered serious erosion! But the T-shirts were what "sold" the show for me; I didn't like "naked" animals as a kid and always preferred them to be wearing hats, ties and/or shoes at the least (and to be bipedal, of course).

A shining star in its era, and well worth treasuring and celebrating. Shirts off!
