The series uses two pieces of theme music for the opening theme and the ending theme. The opening theme song is called "Rock River e" (ロックリバーヘ Rokku Ribâ e?, lit. "To Rock River"), and the ending theme is "Oide Rascal" (おいでラスカル Oide Rasukaru?, lit. "Rascal Come"), both sung by the Japanese vocalist by Kumiko Oosugi. The opening theme was later used as the main gameplay theme for the 1981 arcade game Frogger.
Japan's import of raccoons
In Japan, up to 1,500 raccoons were imported as pets each year after the success of Rascal the Raccoon (1977). In 2004, the descendants of discarded or escaped animals lived in 42 of 47 prefectures.
