RANKIN/BASS' THE FIRST EASTER RABBIT (1976)




A cool piece by my friend Mark Christiansen

RANKIN/BASS' THE EASTER BUNNY IS COMIN' TO TOWN

I watched this one tonight and couldn't help but think....why doesn't one of the networks show this?  Easter is a big holiday and RANKIN/BASS' RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER had huge ratings in December of 2012.  It is a no brainer....

TARGET has the beautifully re-mastered in HIGH DEFINITION DVD of RANKIN/BASS' HERE COMES PETER COTTONTAIL on sale for $4 this week!  It is MUCH improved over previous DVD issues and much more colorful!  The CW showed it last night BUT it was heavily edited....cuts throughout the entire hour.  Glad it was on TV though!  They also have RANKIN/BASS'  THE EASTER BUNNY IS COMIN' TO TOWN on sale for $7.
