A comedy filled with tenderness as a baby raccoon snuggles his way into the life of a lonely boy. He becomes the boy's only companion during his father's frequent absences. Because of Rascal, both father and son realize their responsibility to each other
Hearty tale. 'Rascal' is nothing absolutely incredible, the cast et al. aren't anything to shout about. That doesn't, however, stop it leaving a heartfelt impression due to its story. It's cool following Sterling & Rascal's journey. As for the cast, Steve Forrest gives a solid display as Willard while Bill Mumy is suitable for the role of Sterling; who is voiced, for narration, by Walter Pidgeon, he does a grand job in truth. The other members are OK. It might not delve too deeply into the actual lives of Sterling & family, but everything featuring the adorable raccoon and his story is pleasant. At 85 minutes, it's nice and short too.
