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

Wonderful family entertainment
12 July 2007 | by lzzhlmsSee all my reviews

This is Jim Henson at his best. With amazing and popular projects such as the Muppet Show and Labyrinth to his name, The Tale of the Bunny Picninc follows in good tradition. The Tale of the Bunny Picnic has humour and an excellent story line. The Tale of the Bunny Picnic is a fabulous family film, which has an appeal for all ages. I certainly had hours of enjoyment from this film as a child and would love to share this with my family. I have found it very difficult to purchase on VHS, new or used and feel that it is such a shame that The Tale of the Bunny Picnic is not available for purchase on DVD- I would certainly order a copy.
