Storyline

A wonderful adaptation of the Charles Dickens's classic, A Christmas Carol. An overexcited Roo, along with Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore, pay Rabbit a visit to celebrate Easter. But instead of finding an Easter party they find a Spring Cleaning day celebration. Rabbit refuses to celebrate Easter and a very disappointed Roo tries to cheer him up. How can they celebrate Easter without the Easter Bunny? Past, present and future intertwine in this marvelous movie, as the characters jump from page to page, teaching everyone a very valuable lesson. Written by Geniz

Trivia

The events of the film directly parallel those of the classic Charles Dickens novel "A Christmas Carol." Tigger shows Rabbit events from the past, then the narrator (voiced by the late David Ogden Stiers) has him listen in on another character in a present, then shows him a dismal future, leading Rabbit to realize that he can change. Later, Rabbit references lines from the novel by stating "I'm as jumpy as a jackrabbit! I'm as giddy as a schoolbunny!" See more »

Narrator: Spring Cleaning Day was it?
Rabbit: No. Easter. What have i done? Where are all my friends?
Narrator: Friends you say? You surly didn't treat them like friends. Don't you remember?
Rabbit: I'm sorry but i'm the Easter Bunny so i make the rules. It isn't fun it's Easter. I told you exactly what to do and you didn't do any of it!
Narrator: You see Rabbit? You never thought about what your friends wanted. All you do was care for yourself.

Watch this with your children
4 July 2007 | by tnyouthpreacherSee all my reviews

Quality of this movie may not be at the same level as the Pooh movies of the sixties and seventies, but it's still worth watching, little children will enjoy it, parents and grand-parents that take an interest in there children will take the time to explain the many lessons that this movie has to offer, including how friendship and love can bring people with different goals together, and yes the story is familiar and yes the true meaning of Easter is ignored, but that can give the parent the opportunity to tell their children, or grand-children the real reason to celebrate the holiday. Bottom line this is just a good funny movie, no nudity, foul language, or anything else that makes for a typical "family" Hollywood movie.
