Hey guys, how you doing?

First of all I want to apologize if my english is not so good and becomes unreadable at times (because that´s the fact, it is not good Razz). But after that, I want to ask for your help about something that is driving me crazy since the first time I began to look it: a cartoon about animals driving cars with the letter «U» painted in the hood, that were -supposedly- trying to deliver packages in «danger zones» (they were a lot like Civil Defense really, as they used to do things like send ice to other animals who needed it to live, and that kind of things).

I dont remember a whole bunch about this cartoon because I was just too young when they transmited it for the last time here, in Argentina (I wasnt even probably in the First Grade) but I DO remember that one of the characters was named «Rhonda» and was most likely a rabbit -yeah, I know, I´m just giving you next to no info, but It´s seriously all I got in my memory-.

Hope any of you remember this cartoon, because sometimes I feel like I´m the only one who ever watched it (and I already spent lots of time searching thru every cartoon list I came across ever since my first attempt in 2010).

Thanks a lot for your time!

PD: If this helps even a bit, the general design of this toon was a lot like Kissyfur.

I haven´t had the time to look too deep into it, but im 90% sure that´s the cartoon I was desperately looking for. You are my new god man, thanks a LOT!

You restored a golden chapter of my childhood.

I finally managed to watch all seven episodes I could find... and even when this is not as good as I remeber it, it surely has some deeper background story that I bet some may find interesting. I mean, did you know that it was made illegal on the US based on it´s original format of Contest + TV Show? that certainly caught me off guard...

And besides, it seems like none of the original japanese copies have survived to our times (which is not only sad, but puts it right next to the 90´s french toon «Les Jules Chianne de Vie...» (which has no copies left)). I have seen four norweigan, two sewden and a German episode so far, and have no hopes of seeing anymore around.

I could list references all day, but I´d better just link to the original source: here (scroll down to the comments section).
