Here Comes Peter Cottontail
The title of the special is from the Easter song " Here Comes Peter Cottontail ", which is also heard in the special. Bunny, the retiring Chief Easter Bunny, names Peter his successor despite his boasting and fibbing, exemplified when his left ear droops. Peter, who has dreamed of being Chief Easter Bunny almost his entire life, gladly accepts. However, January Q. Irontail wants to be Chief Easter Bunny, only so he can ruin it for children everywhere, as revenge for the loss of his tail, which was run over by a small child who roller-skated over it and replaced with a hard iron tail. Peter, eager to prove his worth accepts the challenge, though the Colonel refuses.
This would play every Easter when I was a kid. They don't make classics like this anymore. Couldn't believe I found it and so happy I did. Played it for my kids to show them how simple things were back when I was their age. Here at Walmart. Your email address will never be sold or distributed to a third party for any reason.
