Just got word today that WARNER BROTHERS is doing a Special Edition DVD of THE EASTER BUNNY IS COMIN' TO TOWN for next Easter! They want to include some extras and hopefully they will pair it up with the RANKIN/BASS cel animated special THE FIRST EASTER RABBIT starring Burl Ives. That is Maury Laws' signature on the postcard image of SUNNY & KING BRUCE from THE EASTER BUNNY IS COMIN' TO TOWN (right). I issued that Limited Edition postcard to promote the DVD releases of THE DAYDREAMER and THE WACKY WORLD OF MOTHER GOOSE (Anchor Bay).
