When Sunny learns that the neighboring town is has no children at all other than a boy ruler who is being kept under wraps by his aunt, Sunny and his pals come up with a plan to free him.

This is so adorable! Yes Sunny the bunny goes through a lot of setbacks, but he finally brings a proper and fun Easter to the world. It's been a long time since I saw this, but I remember it was one of the highlights of my life during the hardships my family and I endured years ago.

My 2 1/2 year old never tires of seeing this, and I admit, at 37, I enjoy it too! It's another classic from Rankin/Bass who brought us Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Gadzooks the grizzly bear is a hoot!
