Plot Edit

The Raccoons' way of life is threatened when Cyril Sneer announces his bid for a lucrative contract from Mammoth Industries. If he wins he will pave over the forest and build an automobile plant. Unless Cedric's solar powered car can defeat Cyril's gas guzzling hot rod in a race, the forest is doomed.

Characters Edit



  • First appearance of Mr. Mammoth and his bird sidekick. Also the first time we hear him speak clearly briefly.
  • First and only appearances of the Solar Coaster and the Sneer Mobile. Same goes for the Scottish accented race commentator, Haggis Lamborgini (whose last name is a play on the Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A.), voiced by Derek Diorio.
  • One of the animators for this episode was Nik Ranieri who would later work as supervising animator for many character for Walt Disney Animation Studios.
  • During the shot where Bert is surprised that the Sneermobile is Cedric's, Melissa has a tan underbelly like she had in The Raccoons and the Lost Star.
