Quotes

Storyteller: [first lines]
Storyteller: [voiceover] Once there was a velveteen rabbit and in the beginning he was really splendid. He was fat and bunchy, just as a rabbit should be. His coat was brown and white and was very soft; he had real thread whiskers and his ears were lined with pink satin. When he sat wedged in the top of the boy's stocking, with a sprig of holly between his paws, the effect was charming.

Peaceful Retelling Of Lovely Old Story
31 March 2001 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

THE VELVETEEN RABBIT, the beloved plaything of a little boy, wants nothing more than for the child's love to help him become a real rabbit.

From the folks at Rabbit Ears comes this gentle version of the classic Margery Williams story. Its dreamy atmosphere should be appreciated by viewers young & old.

Meryl Streep gives an excellent narration, quietly telling the tale with her soothing voice. George Winston's tinkling music & David Jorgensen's beautiful drawings complement the production perfectly.
