Bandit the Raccoon
Bandit the Raccoon (real name Christopher Richard Parque-Johnson, born September 25, 1993), is a film maker, composer and producer in Garden Grove, California. Bandit is primarily known as the host of The Raccoon's Den, and the producer, writer, and keyboardist in Storm Le.
Bandit has been a furry fan since 2006, he became publicly active in the community as a film maker when he created "The Raccoon's Den" in 2009. Bandit has attended many furmeets in Southern California, along with four conventions, all of which have been showcased on his web show.
The Raccoon's Den
In 2009, Bandit created "The Raccoon's Den", a web show where he has gone from personal vlogs, to showcasing various furry events, along with occasional coverage of non-furry topics and interviews with friends, artists and fandom icons. Bandit does most of the video editing and design work. Although intended to give both furries and non-furries more insight into the community, the show has occasionally gained controversey due to seemingly disparaging remarks on sensative topics.
