This animated adaptation of The Velveteen Rabbit is my favorite version of the classic story. I used to watch this version of The Velveteen Rabbit on VHS tape all the time as a child. The Faery Queen's song makes me tear up, even now. This is a beautiful, and very under-rated version of The Velveteen Rabbit. I have fond nostalgic memories of this version of the story. And now that I'm older I can appreciate Christopher Plumber (the only good thing about Dracula 2000) providing the gentle narrations. And I love the Chuck Jones style humor of the toy soldiers with their small subplot about being jealous of the toy rabbit.
