This 50-minute compilation cartoon was originally released in 1977 as a TV special, running 50 minutes. Granny tries to enlist Bugs Bunny as a substitute Easter rabbit when the original is sick. But Bugs is filming a picture, so she has to work to convince him to take the Easter Bunny job, while Daffy wants it and auditions for it.
Yogi Bear ruins Mister Ranger's plans for the big Easter Jamboree by thinking only of himself and eating all the Easter treats, accidentally destroying the park Easter Bunny suit in the process. Wanting to help Mister Ranger (whose career depends on holding a successful event and impressing his boss) and also wanting to save himself from being shipped off to the Siberian Circus, Yogi Bear sets off to bring the real Easter Bunny to the celebration.
Unfortunately, the Easter Bunny has been kidnapped by evil villains who run a factory and want to get rid of all the real chicken eggs so they can sell their plastic ones to everyone. Of course, Yogi and Boo Boo Bear rescue the Easter Bunny, save the Easter Jamboree, and even convince Mister Ranger to believe in the Easter Bunny.
Springwatch returns for an Easter Special, showcasing the best of British wildlife just as the countryside is bursting into colour and life. With the breeding season getting underway, presenters Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan hope for Easter eggs at the mainland's largest seabird colony. Martin Hughes-Games is in Suffolk with seasonal news from the current home of Springwatch, and Simon King is back on the remote Scottish island of Islay, discovering the origin of the Easter Bunny.
The plot takes a little of it's storyline from The Velveteen Rabbit…toy bunny becoming real. Some Toy Story is thrown in….toys coming to life and banding together. There is nothing religious in this movie. There is reference to the Easter Bunny but the plot revolves around finding a magical egg. If you are looking for a movie to watch around Easter, that is suitable for kids, I'd recommend this.
