The California Raisins: Meet the Raisins
The California Raisins, a rhythm & blues aggregation consisting of genuine raisins A.C., Red, Stretch, and Bebop, originally starred in a series of popular TV commercials. These were animated in a fluid, wholly believable fashion by stop-motion maestro Will Vinton. Meet the Raisins, the group's second prime-time special (the first was a 1987 Christmas show) is an on-target parody of rock documentaries. In between the faux "home movie" clips, scenes of the group's early days as the Vine-Yls, and concert footage, we are treated to interviews by those responsible for the Raisins' success, including a broadly caricatured manager -- gold jewelry, bikinied hangers-on, and all. Meet the Raisins first aired on November 4, 1988. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The California Raisins II - Raisins: Sold Out!
This animated presentation of the California Raisins features songs like "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" and "Respect." ~ Julie Clark, Rovi
