The Hobo With A Shotgun DVD was found at the local used video game store for cheap. DVDs were $2.99/each or buy 2 get 1 free. Since I bought 3 DVDs, this item was $1.99.
Anyway, the movie is an exploitation action film from Halifax, Canada. It is violent . . . over the top violent.
Despite the “R” rated violence, the ending was the most surprising part of the film as the credits featured the song “Run With Us” performed by Lisa Lougheed from “The Raccoons”!
- “The Raccoons” is a Canadian animated television series which was originally broadcast from 1985 to 1991

Raccoon and Shotguns?
Of all the throwbacks and references to the 70’s and 80’s in Hobo With A Shotgun, the ending stood out the most as it payed tribute to a great childhood cartoon. However, logic dictates the following:
Hobo With A Shotgun + The Raccoons = Raccoon With A Shotgun
