By the way, for UK fans out there, I've found out that Complete Season DVD sets are being released in the UK and The Raccoons- Season 1 is already available for order from Amazon.co.uk
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Raccoons-1-Complete-Kevin-Gillis/dp/B000NHG838/ref=pd_sbs_d_h__2

And Season 2 (or Series 2, as they say in the UK) is coming out on September 1, 2008!
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Raccoons-2-Complete/dp/B001870VT4/ref=pd_sbs_d_h__2

The Series 1 and Series 2 Gift Sets being released in the USA are just that- a grab-bag of episodes (9 per "Gift Set") from the first 2 seasons.
So I'd still like to see the whole series get released in the US- but this is a start anyway.
And for those who have multi-region DVD players in North America, you can actually order the Complete Season DVD sets from the UK if you like and those should play fine.

If anyone's interested, there's an incredible fan web site out there for The Raccoons that you should check out- http://www.gilsinan.com/raccoons/
I'm sure any current news on The Raccoons will be found there. Cool

Oh yeah- and here's the original story where I saw all this to begin with-
http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Site-News-Morningstar-in-the-USA/10367

Apparently, Canadian DVD releasing company Morningstar Enterntainment, Inc. is releasing some of its DVDs to the USA now- so maybe there will be some further releases to look for from them in the future!
