''Here Comes Peter Cottontail'' is a StopMotion puppet animated (called "Animagic") Creator/RankinBassProductions holiday special, the first of the studio's Easter specials, broadcast in 1971. It follows the usual Rankin/Bass formula of taking a holiday standard song like "Peter Cottontail", and weaving around it a narrative, in this case adapted by R/B's favorite writer Romeo Muller from Otto and Priscilla Friedrich's book ''The Easter Bunny That Overslept'', and adding original songs with music by Maury Laws and lyrics by co-producer Jules Bass. DannyKaye serves as the usual R/B InkSuitActor {{Narrator}}, Seymour K. Sassafrass.

* ChildHater: Irontail blames children in general for the loss of his tail. The irony is, while they didn't hate ''him'' back then, they sure do ''now'', making his own attempt to deliver eggs rather difficult. (Which pretty much means his current situation is his own fault.)

* MrViceGuy: Peter, for most of the original special. He's intelligent and avuncular, and shows kindness to everyone he meets, even those who nobody else would think about. He also genuinely wants to make up for the mistake he made, and he's clearly cut out for the job of Chief Easter Bunny. However, he's prone to overconfidence and boastfulness, and has a propensity towards fibbing that constantly gets the better of him. His pride, in fact, is the reason why he nearly lost in the first place - [[ForWantOfANail if he'd been humble enough to leave nothing to chance and gone to bed early the night before the contest on Easter, he wouldn't have overslept and needed Seymour Sassafras' help to begin with, since he would almost certainly have delivered more eggs than Irontail]].

* FreudianExcuse: Irontail wasn't always a nasty bunny. The entire reason he dislikes children at all is because a kid accidentally squished his tail while rollerskating.

* HeyItsThatVoice: VincentPrice as Irontail; Casey Kasem as Peter; Danny Kaye as multiple characters, and Rankin/Bass favorite Paul Frees as various anonymous characters.
