Riley is an 10-year-old raccoon who is very small. He's one of the smallest kids in his class. He's always had to go to extremes to get the attention he wants. He's very loud, outgoing, and he wears a silly hat. Not satisfied to be small and forgotten, Riley wants to make a name for himself as the village hero... despite the fact that there's not much to save Critter Village from. Besides his enthusiam and determination, he has a multi-purpose tail at his disposal. Riley's so caught up in his active fantasy life, he's usually left oblivious to any real threat.
