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.
  • Bunnies for Cuteness: The main characters are mostly cute bunnies designed to appeal to children.
  • Civilized Animal
  • Country Mouse
  • Downer Ending: "The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck": Jemima escapes from the fox with the help of some decidecly 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.
    • Bittersweet Ending: The film then cuts into the future where she successfully hatches four chicks, made slightly sadder by the fact that it is 'only' four, implying that she laid more eggs.
  • 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
