The three singing chickens are introduced as the "Hendrews Sisters". This is a takeoff on the famous Andrews Sisters, a trio who were recording stars through the 1940s and into the 1950s.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 #1, Chicken #2, Chicken #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.
Chicken #2:The chicken was first, that we can prove / With a little Bible lesson: / When Noah took the animals on the ark, / That sure fixed the progression!
Chicken #1, Chicken #2, Chicken #3:How 'bout what came first, / The chicken or the egg? / What's there to agree on? / Just like asking who came first: / The fountain or Ponce de León.
Chicken #2:There was no egg aboard that ark, / Just a Mr. and Mrs. Chicken! / When the water dried out, they hatched an egg, / That should make the plot unthicken.

Cute as a bunny., 1 July 2006
Author: Stebaer4 from United States

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.
