Had it:

The above is a circa 1976 plush raccoon toy with a radio inside the body.  They were manufactured by Radio Shack. I received one in the Christmas of that year. It went everywhere with me for a couple of years until I outgrew it, then my folks threw it out. I believe it was AM only, and as I can remember none of the stations ever came in clearly. Still it was a definite fave. There were other animal characters also, but I forget what they were.

Kinda weird to find your old toys on the internet, isn't it? Never saw a raccoon radio before!

I used to enjoy doing "surgery" on it by unzipping the raccoon then removing the radio

Funny-- I probably would have done the same thing.
