While searching McHale's island for some stolen eggs, Binghamton, Carpenter, and Admiral Hardesty are captured by Japanese soldiers, drunk on the egg nog made from the stolen eggs. But they're soon rescued by the Easter Bunny, on his way to an Easter egg hunt, supervised by McHale and the guys, for some native school children. Written by

The title is based on the character Peter Cottontail who is found in the works of Thornton Burgess and was further immortalized in the child's Easter classic song "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" by Burgess and Romeo Miller. See more »
At first I thought this was going to be another poor offering by the writers. Even the title of the episode did not cause any stir of excitement. But after watching there was some good moments which was a pleasant surprise and more than expected.
It begins when Admiral Hardesty has a shipment of real eggs sent to Taratupa for the Easter Holidays. It will be up to Binghamton to protect the eggs until the Admiral can make the trip to the base for the pick-up.
In the meantime, the crew of the 73, mainly Gruber, steals the Admiral's eggs to make some moonshine eggnog for a profit. But what they don't know is that the native kids are all sadden to hear that there will be no Easter egg hunt due to there being no real eggs on the island. Now, with the kindness of McHale, the kids will have a happy Easter. But Binghamton's Easter will not be as joyous when the Admiral comes for his shipment of eggs that has been swindled.
There were some funny situations in this episode. When Binghamton steals two of the eggs in the early part of the show it was actually a humorous scene that was unexpected. Not to say that this was a great story- but it was a story where little was expected and the show delivered. When the final credits roll, the viewer is not disappointed but mildly surprised. Nice show.
