Have you ever wondered how there aren't many human characters in The Raccoons' series?
Or how the animals are just as smart as humans and all? My theory is
that The Ranger and his two kids, Tommy and Julie are the only survivors from a third
world war. The intelligent animals being the result of a biochemical weapon's radiation, causing them to mutate and becoming how we know them in the series.  When Ranger Dan and his kids stop showing up in the series, they had either moved from the Evergreen forest to find more survivors or succumb to radiation sickness overtime. The aardvarks and other animals that aren't native to
Canada's environment, came from zoos that had been effected from the said
biochemical effects. The cars, computers, and other items such as clothes are from the homes
of the previous human owners that either evacuated the war or passed on from
it.

Another idea is that maybe the Raccoons is really a bunch of stories that the Tommy
is telling his children to help them sleep at night. The narrator really being
him all grown up.

Or the Raccoons live on the real Earth while the human race had become
advance enough to move to another Earth-like planet that they renamed Earth.
Which would explain the advancements in space travel they showed in the film,
The Raccoons & The Lost Star.

Here's my last theory: Maybe the characters travel through different dimensions
to interact for a while. As the series slowly came to a close, the portal started
to slowly close as well. Thus we'd end up focusing on the animal dimension more
and less on the world that the 3 human characters lived it.

These are just some fan theories and I hope I didn't offend
any Raccoons' fans out there. Especially,
since I am still a fan of this 80's animated series.
I wanted to write my own Cartoon Conspiracy and I came up with this.

The Evergreen Forest is a rural area, so not that many human characters reside there to begin with, much like real life Canadian forests in general. The series was really to focus on the animal characters hence the name, the human characters were only there to add a supporting structure to the series, till they were dropped completely by Season 2.

What I want to know is how in the episode "Trouble Shooter" did Bentley get to the Evergreen Forest on his own since it occured before Bentley's family moved to the forest.

If you've seen 'Spring Fever' then you would know he comes by train.

I know, but I would have assumed that George and Nicole paid for his (and Lisa's) train ticket in "Spring Fever" and "Making the Grade". I doubt they would have paid his ticket in "Trouble Shooter"

That makes no sense at all. Obviously they did.

Remember, Bentley had run away in "Trouble Shooter"; he wasn't supposed to be in the Evergreen Forest at the time. I don't see Bentley saying "Hey, I'm running away. Can you give me money for a train ticket?" and George or Nicole saying "Okay."

Ah sorry, it's been a while since I've seen the show, yes you're right. I assume he probably used his allowance for a train ticket or something, or found some other way of getting there, without too much difficulty, though it was never explained in the episode.

It's okay.

As for it not being explained in "Trouble Shooter", this is why I was putting it down in the conspiracy theories discussion to see what theories as to how Bentley was able to get to the Evergreen Forest on his own. (Mind you if he had put that much thinking into his school work, he might not have had to run away!)
