The Easter Bunny Is Comin’ to Town (1977)

Movie Summary

Fred Astaire narrates the story of Easter, which actually began in the village of Kidville. The town was run and inhabited only by children, and one Easter morning the children found a sad baby bunny among them. They named him Sunny, and he grew up happily but liked to venture to a nearby town where only grown-ups lived, except for 7-year-old King Bruce. As a gesture of friendship, Sunny started bringing Bruce lovely painted eggs, the first Easter eggs ever. And every Easter thereafter, the rabbit would invent another Easter tradition… egg rolling, jellybeans, chocolate bunnies. It originally premiered on ABC on April 6, 1977.
