Storyline

In the middle of the night in EggTown, a mysterious figure sneaks into a bakery shop to steal some pastries. He is chased out, thanks in large part to the keen eye of Good Gracious Grasshopper, but not before his cloak is marked with some desert-like evidence. The thief is Terrible Timothy Take-It, and he scurries to his mother's home. Timothy's mother, Tiny Tessie, is asleep. He loves his mother and deep down yearns to be good, but circumstance has led Timothy down a slippery slope to mischief. He leaves the cloak behind, and the next day, wearing that same garment, Tessie wanders into the village to do her shopping. Seeing the evidence on Tessie's cloak, the townsfolk believe she is the thief. Coming to her rescue is Horrible Harriet Hare, a smart, lonely and occasionally over-bearing, schoolteacher.

Not Worth Seeing
29 March 2005 | by tarbosh22000See all my reviews

I can see why "Easter Egg Adventure" didn't make it to theaters. I think it's the very poorly done animation. It looks unfinished and sloppy. "Lil' Pimp" looks better than this. The story is OK through. The voice cast is mediocre. James Woods does not have a big role in this. Joe Pantoliano does a decent job as Timmy. Brooke Shields and Gary Littman are very annoying as Ms. Hare and Gracious Grasshopper. The writing mostly consists of play on words for Rabbits and Chickens. The songs are also pretty weak too. The only saving grace in this mess are the funny close ups of the characters.

Definitely for little kids only.
