There's that rabbit along with tradition.
1 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes,whenever I see this or reminisce about this I'm always immediately transported back in time too.This feature got to be an annual Easter Sunday tradition on The Disney channel.It's also loosely based on the children's book called The Velveteen Rabbit.One way this special differs from the book is that in the book features a boy instead of a girl of whom has a stuffed rabbit of which becomes a real rabbit.It's very cute in many ways including how it's got Santa Clause as well as that very cute song of There's that rabbit doing this that and the other thing & I only wish that I could easily recall all of the words to this song too including taking some blue from the sky.Even how it may conclude whether or not as Our Cottontail Friend that rabbit,that rabbit. It's narrated by Burle Ives as the elderly Stuffy of whom was according to this The First Easter Rabbit. Burle Ives had also Narrated as a Snow Man The Story of Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer.

Truthfully, Stephen "Steve" G. Baer a.k.a. "Ste".
