The title refers to the Easter song "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" and the title has the same rhythm as the source song. Coincidentally, two years after this episode airs, she would go on playing a bunny (turned into a human) on Bewitched. Uncle Arthur accidentally turns the bunny that Tabitha wished for into a Playboy bunny in the middle of Tabitha's birthday party. See more »

There Goes Carol Wayne...
28 August 2016 | by jivers01See all my reviews

Busty beauty Carol Wayne is the only attraction in this routine, by-the-numbers romp. Wayne perfectly embodied the sexy, dumb blonde stereotype -- Jayne Mansfield's physicality with a shy Monroe-like whisper. Typecast as a naive sex-bomb, she had near-identical roles in ''I Spy'', ''The Man from UNCLE'', and others. Here she plays a vapid, rising movie star with a Mansfield-like obsession with pink -- even her dog has pink fur.

As a publicity stunt, her agent arranges for famous astronaut Tony (Hagman) to be her escort at a big charity event. Tony behaves like a jerk and lies to Jeannie about who he's taking to the party -- while Jeannie has to stay home. As expected, the usual hijinks ensue. This stale plot about a jealous Jeannie causing trouble for Tony was endlessly recycled throughout the series.

Perennial character actor Jessie White is amusing as Bootsie's conniving, cigar-chomping talent agent. He played similar fast-talking managers, promoters, showbiz types, etc., in scores of shows and films.

In in end, this disposable episode is interesting for one attribute. It is perhaps the only time a gorgeous co-star was able to overshadow the stunning Barbara Eden.
