Bean Bunny is too small to be useful (says his brother) to help prepare for the Bunny Picnic, so he wanders off and sees a legendary persecutor of all rabbits: the farmer's dog. But nobody believes him when he tries to tell them he's seen the dog, until the dog breaks up the picnic. And it's up to Bean to come up with a plan to defeat the farmer's dog and discover the one thing the dog fears. Written by
[after Grandpa Bean tells the story of the bunny picnic and the dog and the farmer]
But Grandpa Bean, what about the bunny picnic?
Oh well I'm glad you asked, because there's never been another bunny picnic like it, before or since.

I guess I'm a bit bias as a person who wants to work for Jim Henson's company one day but its a good film. I was watching it again today and decided to look it up on IMDb and was stunned to see that it was from 1986. The puppetry is flawlessly executed and its appearance is timeless. The story is a bit childish but hey we need more family friendly movies in an age where if a movie doesn't have sex or violence it loses its audience. Since the film is in the tradition of most Henson films (with the exception of the first three and the final Muppet movie.) it looks very much like a fantasy. Though made for children I'm 20 and was still mildly amused when I watched it again. And I agree that if you see this one on DVD or VHS pick it up.
