Storyline

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 Kathy Li

This film is great - one of Jim Henson's best. I saw it several years ago and can still remember it so clearly. The bunny rabbit Bean is so cute and by far the best character: my younger brother adopted that as his nickname after seeing the film. Its great for kids - but fun for adults too.
