Western Animation / The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends

Just another perfect day...

1992-1995 animated series based on the stories of British children's author Beatrix Potter. Named after The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

This show provides examples of:

  • Badass Adorable: Benjamin's dad.
  • Bittersweet Ending: "The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck": Jemima escapes from the fox with the help of some decidedly uncivilized dogs (who never speak any human language, unlike the series' smarter characters). However, the dogs are hungry and go for food, as well; they end up eating Jemima's eggs before her eyes. She cries all the way back to the farm. The film then cuts into the future where she successfully hatches four ducklings, made slightly sadder by the fact that it is 'only' four, implying that she laid more eggs but failed to hatch them because she was a "bad sitter.".
  • Bunnies for Cuteness: Peter Rabbit himself, his cousin Benjamin Bunny, and their families: all cute bunnies designed to appeal to children.
  • Civilized Animal
  • Country Mouse
  • Framing Device: Live action segments featuring Niamh Cusack as Beatrix Potter.
  • For Happiness: The mice care a lot about the Tailor of Gloucester's well-being, and watch over him always.
  • Lethal Chef: Anna Maria in "The Tale of Samuel Whiskers".
  • The Other Darrin: A few of the voices were later redubbed with American accents, for unknown reasons. Jemima Puddle-Duck in particular went from a mid-range voice to a much higher and flightier one.
  • Protagonist and Friends
  • Rascally Rabbit: Many of the rabbits are mischievous and prone to getting in trouble.
  • Sweet Dreams Fuel
