YMMV / Here Comes Peter Cottontail

  • Crowning Music of Awesome : Say what you want about the sequel, but its pop-rock rendition of the Peter Cottontail song is surprisingly catchy.
  • Narm: What else do you expect from January Q. Irontail?
  • Nightmare Fuel: As funny as Irontail is he has some moments that make him genuinely frightening. Again, what do expect from Vincent Price?
    Seymour S Sassifrass: (speaking of Peter Cottontail) You mean you've never heard how he almost lost the job? (as the music takes on a minor key and tone) You actually mean you've never heard how a terrible, wicked, nasty rabbit named Irontail almost became the Easter Bunny?
  • Pop-Cultural Osmosis: A lot of people remember the song "Here Comes Peter Cottontail" but not many people are aware that this song actually came from this special.
  • Prop Recycling: As seen in the page image, the Santa Claus model was recycled from the previous year's Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town. On a side note, he was also voiced by Paul Frees in this special, who previously voiced him in Frosty the Snowman and later voiced him again in Rudolph's Shiny New Year.
  • Sequelitis: Here Comes Peter Cottontail: The Movie.
  • Tear Jerker: You can't help but fell sorry for the female bunny that Peter Cottontail meets when he arrives at a place dedicated to Valentine's Day and is later seen crying as he leaving her behind. She later returns during the ending where Peter gives her a flower.
