Need a break from dyeing eggs, deviling eggs, or eating Cadbury Eggs this weekend? (I plan to do all three, so I will certainly need to take a breather.) Tune into The CW this Friday, April 3 at 8pm/7pm Central for the family-friendly classic, Here Comes Peter Cottontail.
In this Rankin/Bass Easter special, eccentric peddler Seymore S. Sassafrass (voiced by Danny Kaye) tells the tale of young Peter Cottontail (Casey Kasem!) and his dreams to become the Chief Easter Bunny. Peter must rescue Easter from the hands of malicious recluse January Q. Irontail (Vincent Price), with the help of a time machine.
The 1971 TV special, with its stop-motion animation that Rankin/Bass became so famous for (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town) is sure to please both children and parents alike!
