A raccoon is a gray, furry mammal with a black facial mask and a ringed tail. They can often be seen around Camp Wawanakwa.
The first raccoon appears in the opening sequence for Total Drama Island when it is pushed out of a tree by a hidden camera.
The raccoon made its first appearance in Wawanakwa Gone Wild!. Duncan is tasked to capture a raccoon for the challenge. However, when he encounters one and threatens it with a chainsaw, several other raccoons appear and combine into a fearsome beast like a robot. It is complete with a very beast-like roar, raccoon launchers and glowing red eyes and proceeds to chase Duncan around the island. It shot more raccoons at Duncan's head, allowing him to catch one, and bring it to the cage at the campfire pit, and started communicating with a duck, also in the cage (courtesy of Gwen). It later attacked Owen after being trapped in the cage.
In Camp Castaways, a few raccoons are seen on a chair floating down the river after the camp is flooded. In Are We There Yeti?, Owen encounters a raccoon when he puts on the night vision goggles, which is seen catching a fish. It waves to him, and does not notice the Sasquatchanakwa running behind it.
A raccoon appears in the opening sequence, where it falls out of a hole in a tree when a camera pops out of it.Top Dog as Beth's animal buddy. For the first challenge, the raccoon must imitate Beth which it does perfectly by assisting Beth when she lost her retainer. She named the raccoon "Mr. Whiskers." In the episode, it's revealed that Mr. Whiskers' burrow is home to several other raccoons. Oddly, they lead a civilized life. Their burrow contains a kitchen area, a ping-pong table, and a wide-screen television. They seem to consider themselves superior to humans because of this and the way they treat Beth. With Mr. Whiskers help, Beth was be able to win both parts of the challenge, enabling her to reach the final three.
In Celebrity Manhunt's Total Drama Action Reunion Special, Duncan and Courtney are shown to have a pet raccoon named Brittany who Courtney tries to get sole custody of by suing Duncan after she and Duncan break up.

In Backstabbers Ahoy!, a mutated raccoon is used by Chris to scare the campers out of the main lodge because their breakfast was cutting into time that could be used for the challenge. Once outside, Chris notices that Lightning is missing. Lightning is then thrown out of one of the windows by the raccoon.

- Duncan and Courtney are the first characters to have a raccoon as a pet.
