Love this Special!
20 January 2020 | by rockndaparadiseSee all my reviews

I remember this being one of my favorite Easter specials as a kid. Until recently, the last time I remember watching it was when I was in third grade. Then one day, I rediscovered it, and I got nostalgic chills and remembered why I loved it so much! I love the animals on this special. Lollichop is my favorite of the four; she's just so cute that I want to hug her! It's a shame they didn't appear in other sources of media other than still being represented as the mascots of Paas Easter Egg dye still to this very day, which I guess counts as something. Looking back on it today, there are some parts in it that might be considered politically incorrect by today's standards, but they're not bad enough to distract you from the heart it delivers. I used to have this recorded on a VHS tape along with some other animated Easter specials, but now I have it on DVD, and now I can share it with my nephew every Easter and re-live my childhood! If you haven't seen this special, I recommend checking it out. It's truly an underrated Easter special!
