The Mailman decides to stop another deluge of letters by answering questions about the Easter Bunny: Sunny, a baby rabbit found and adopted by Kidville (a town of only kids--even a kid mailman). And when Sunny goes delivering eggs to the nearby town (which he has to dye to fool Gadzooks, the mean bear on the mountain), he discovers that there are no kids in the town, and that the rightful (kid) ruler is being suppressed by his aunt. But the young king likes Sunny's dyed eggs and jelly beans. So Kidsville, with the help of an old train engine, makes a few plans (and a decoy chocolate rabbit) to distribute them.

Did You Know?


The song "In The Big Rock Candy Mountain" was written near the end of the 1800s and was an ironic look at what everyone, but especially hobos, were searching for. It was "cleaned up" for this cartoon since the original mentions "cigarette trees" and streams of alcohol trickling through the rocks. See more »


Child: What came first, Mr. Kluger: the chicken or the egg?
S.D. Kluger: Girls, if you please.
Chicken #1: Really? What a question to ask us!
Chicken #2: I mean, did you ever!
Chicken #3: Let's tell it like it was, girls.
Chicken #1Chicken #2Chicken #3: [singing] What came first, / The chicken or the egg? / What a silly riddle! / Just like asking who came first: / The pussycat or the fiddle.

Cute as a bunny.
1 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As with Santa Clause is Coming to Town this is a cute follow up on how to tell origins of traditions in connection to a traditional holiday. It touched my heart ever since it came out as The First Easter Rabbit did when it came out one year prior to this one.The kids make a cute rendition in Kidville and Lily Supplies a good Villainess more or less equivalent to The Burger Meister,Meister Burger with her soldiers and all.I agree that this Easter special brings out the kid in all of us as do both "Here comes Peter Cottontail" and "The First Easter Rabbit" do. Sunny Bunny is very cute both as a baby bunny as well as a big bunny.Gad Zooks the bear is equivalent to both The Abominal Snowman in Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer and the winter warlock in Santa Clause is Coming to town of which brings to mind in part how the late Fred Astaire did come back to narrate this special. Truthfully, Stephen "Steve" G. Baer a.k.a."Ste" of Framingham,Ma.USA.
