5.0 out of 5 stars Another RANKIN/BASS Classic!
It's hard to believe that ARTHUR RANKIN and JULES BASS were able to Produce another GREAT 'ANIMAGIC' Easter Special after HERE COMES PETER COTTONTAIL....BUT they did! They were able to do it with the help of FRED ASTAIRE as the narrator and once again ROMEO MULLER as the writer. As far as the music goes, one reviewer is way off base here. One of the most memorable...

3.0 out of 5 stars Sure seems familiar...
If you've seen Santa Claus is Coming to Town, you'll feel like this is an Easter re-hashing, which it is. The story, supporting characters, even the sets seem REALLY familiar. But a kid doesn't care! And there aren't many decent Easter videos out there, so this is one you'll probably want to pick up if you're in the market. My kids almost always get into the songs on such...

It's hard to believe that ARTHUR RANKIN and JULES BASS were able to Produce another GREAT 'ANIMAGIC' Easter Special after HERE COMES PETER COTTONTAIL....BUT they did! They were able to do it with the help of FRED ASTAIRE as the narrator and once again ROMEO MULLER as the writer. As far as the music goes, one reviewer is way off base here. One of the most memorable RANKIN/BASS Songs is the theme to this one "THE EASTER BUNNY IS COMIN' TO TOWN TODAY" sung by FRED ASTAIRE and of course "Someone's Gotta Be First." This has also become a family tradition at my home and it's hard to believe the Networks (ABC) stopped airing it. Who forget GADZOOKS the bear? WARNER BROTHERS is to be applauded for this GREAT clam shell cover featuring the ANIMAGIC characters.....now if it could just be released on DVD with THE FIRST EASTER RABBIT starring BURL IVES!

My kids almost always get into the songs on such a tape, but not this one. The music is forgettable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just As Cute and Fun As Could Be!, March 10 2002
By 
Jan Lugenbuhl (Mandeville, LA USA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
One of the very best animated Easter shows for children of all ages, it offers an adorable "explanation" for each of the Easter traditions~how and why jelly beans are popular; Easter egg hunts; Easter egg rolling contests; Easter bonnets, and so on, all told in a sweet and charming story that makes for the most delightful entertainment. Make this a must-have for Easter, and after!

5.0 out of 5 stars Childhood Favorite!, April 8 2013

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Easter Bunny Is Coming to Town: Deluxe Edition (DVD)
So happy to have this childhood favorite! It is seldom shown on T.V. these days so now I can share it with a new generation. A great story letting kids and adults in on how all the Easter “traditions” started (hiding eggs, first chocolate bunny etc.); from the “masters Rankin & Bass.
