A Rankin/Bass production narrated by Burl Ives that feels much like the classic holiday specials Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town, Frosty the Snowman, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, the 1976 The First Easter Rabbit tells the story of how a plush bunny named Stuffy became the world's very first Easter rabbit. The story begins much like the classic book The Velveteen Rabbit: a plush rabbit is given to a young girl as a Christmas present and she develops a great love for it. When the girl becomes ill with scarlet fever, the doctor says the bunny must be burned, but before that can happen, a fairy makes the toy rabbit come alive. Here the television special departs from the classic story, and the fairy charges Stuffy with the important mission of becoming the first Easter rabbit. With a little help from Santa, Stuffy sets out to outsmart the villain Zero–who's bent on turning Easter Valley from a place of eternal spring to a frozen wasteland like the rest of the North Pole–and figure out how to deliver Easter baskets to children around the world. The special contains several songs performed by Ives, most of which are not particularly memorable, as well as Ives singing the famous Irving Berlin song “Easter Parade” from the 1948 film of the same name. This sweet and fanciful special about the Easter Bunny is appropriate for kids ages 3 and older, and, while it probably won't become a classic in the league of the Rankin/Bass holiday specials, it's a secular Easter story that's worth sharing.
