Hippity, Hoppity Easter's on it's way...


I am doing a radio interview next Tuesday with BOB MANGELS in Wellsville, NY about the RANKIN/BASS Easter classics and decided to post something. They have the BEST EASTER shows of all and HERE COMES PETER COTTONTAIL and THE EASTER BUNNY IS COMIN' TO TOWN are the BEST! The old DVD of THE EASTER BUNNY IS COMIN' TO TOWN is the BEST with the BEST cover (Left). THE FIRST EASTER RABBIT w/ BURL IVES hasn't come out on DVD yet BUT I had it converted to DVD-R.

My sister Stacey...

Donny Osmond offers the classic RANKIN/BASS TV series on DVD at his website They are currently out of stock on the DVD of five episodes BUT I would check back. Donny was super nice to me when I wrote THE ENCHANTED WORLD OF RANKIN/BASS: A PORTFOLIO and very fond of RANKIN/BASS. Enjoy!
