Movie Info

Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass have produced such animated holiday classics as Rudolph's Shiny New Year, Frosty the Snowman, and Santa Claus Is Coming to Town. The holiday cheer continues with this video. Screenwriter Romeo Muller has adapted the popular children's song into an exciting Easter tale. Peter Cottontail (voice of Casey Kasem) is challenged by the evil Irontail (voiced by the incomparable Vincent Price) to a contest to see who can deliver the most decorated eggs. The winner receives the title of Easter Bunny. You can guess what will happen to Easter if Irontail -- who blames humans and the holiday for the loss of his fluffy tail -- wins. Narrated by Danny Kaye, the film features great musical numbers and the unique Rankin-Bass style of puppet stop-motion animation.

Audience Reviews for Here Comes Peter Cottontail

People have tried to create a mythology for the Easter Bunny for years, but it just keeps turning him into Santa Clause. Your better off sticking to the Santa Clause is Comin' to town special- yes, even on easter. That one didn't have to rely on time travel out of left field to fix everything.

Superb Rankin-Bass Easter Special. They don't show this one on television much anymore. It's so cute! But it's a bit long and padded.

As a child this movie gave me the creeps, an easter movie. The bunny was just awful. The movie however, God awful.
