It's literally a coincidence that I'm reviewing this on Easter!

I must have been six when I saw "Here Comes Peter Cottontail". Now that I know who did some of the voices, that only makes the movie cooler. The plot of course has good rabbit Peter Cottontail (Casey Kasem, aka Shaggy on "Scooby-Doo") trying to become the Easter Bunny after lascivious rabbit Irontail (Vincent Price) wins the contest. Through some mishap, Peter accidentally travels through the whole year, selling eggs for every holiday.

Maybe this does mostly serve as a kids' movie, but it's pretty neat. With Shaggy as the good guy, Dr. Phibes as the bad guy, and Danny Kaye as the narrator, how can you go wrong?

Rankin/Bass's Easter Masterpiece

This is an excellent stop-motion TV special that originally aired during the early 70's. It features the voices of Danny Kaye, Vincent Price and Casey Kasem and is the first and easily the best of three Easter specials from Rankin/Bass, who also graced our television sets with holiday traditions such as "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", "Santa Claus is Coming To Town", "Frosty the Snowman", and the popular cult classic "Mad Monster Party".

This fanciful, pastel-colored Easter special is based on a book titled "The Easter Bunny Who Overslept". Peter Cottontail agrees to a contest against Evil Irontail to see who can deliver the most Easter eggs. But, when Peter oversleeps, leaving Evil Irontail to rule April Valley (the land of Easter bunnies), he must travel back through time making unplanned stops at all the other holidays on his way back to Easter.

This show really has a warm, Easter/Spring feeling, wonderful songs and a chance to catch a glimpse of all the holidays through the enchanted puppet-animated world of Animagic! Once again, Rankin/Bass have taken that fuzzy holiday warmth and turned it into a colorful, fun special.

Woefully forgotten special

Unlike Christmas, Easter doesn't really get that many TV specials made in its honor. It really is a shame, since Here Comes Peter Cottontail is every bit as worthy of TV airtime as the beloved Christmas Rankin-Bass specials.

The music is all memorable, my personal favorites being "Be Mine Today," "Hope is There," and most of all, the wistful "If I Could Only Get Back to Yesterday" sung by the multi-talented Danny Kaye, who narrates the story. The characters are fun, save for Bonnie the Bonnet, whose voice is a bit grating. Vincent Price steals the show as the malicious Irontail, out to revenge his maimed tail by ruining Easter for the kids. Casey Kasem is appealing and tons of fun as Peter.

The special is great for kids, but its charm and messages about responsibility and hope will appeal to older folks as well. It's good viewing, whether it's Easter or not!
