Who knew that a raccoon in a cat suit would be the best thing we saw all day?

It’s been 40 years since Rascal the Raccoon first made his rascally appearance in the world. There have been plenty of ways to celebrate, like baked goods, but it might be this collaboration with Sanrio’s slightly elder ambassador of cute that has us reaching for our wallets.
