Pretty quiet earlier, but lately some news from Mark Smith and Ben Rigsby, both of whom got a reply from Fabulous Films about Season 2, saying that it would be released January or February 2009 and that they are currently "waiting on extras".

Subject: New raccoons dvds from fabilious films ltd

Hi:

I have some brilliant news about fabulous films thanks to David Monid from the new raccoons forum. He has found that fabulous films have brought out a new raccoons dvd of the fist series but only three episodes. Here is the link:

Also what is even better they are going to bring out series 2!!!!

I don't know if it worked by you posting my email on your site and sales picked up or the person who sent me that message did not know what they were doing.

thank you
anthony

Let's keep up those support emails to Fabulous Films and convince them to release all of the episodes and specials.

Thanks for your email, no plans yet.. we'd love to release though.. we didn't sell enough copies of Vol 1 to really go full steam ahead with Vol 2.

Thanks
Fabulous Films Info

Come on guys, let's write to show our support. Also, if you are in the UK (or if you are in the US and have a region-free DVD player) buy the season 1 discs! (I know that page doesn't work on Firefox, it's an Amazon.com bug I haven't been able to get them to fix.) I had such high hopes for Fabulous Films when Morningstar failed us. Maybe I'll talk to Kevin and convince him to release the episodes online right here, the costs are much lower with online distribution and in a few years Blu-Ray and whatever other physical media are du jour will be obsolete anyway in favor of online distribution.

Added some more information on the Polish version of the show (including a link to the Polish intro) to the Now Playing page, thanks to Wilki.

Added a screenshot of Willow's Store thanks to Gabe Bennett. Also updated lyrics of Calling You to add the extra verses in Let's Dance, thanks to Aaron Perrott.

Happy Belated New Year! I've updated the Now Playing section with info from several individuals (Hektor, Leelan, Marijke, Badre). Also beefed up the Merchandise page, get 'em while you can. I suspect the Morningstar releases will become harder to get while the Fabulous Films ones will become easier.
