This will mark the feature animation debuts for both actors. Carrey will voice R.J., a mischievous raccoon, while Shandling will voice Verne, a sensitive turtle. The pair become friends as they deal with an encroachin suburban population. The film is based on a comic strip by Michael Fry and T Lewis.
