The New Adventures of Peter Rabbit


Hop into a delightful, new version of Beatrix Potter’s classic children’s story in the marvelously animated, song-and-laughter filled New Adventures of Peter Rabbit! Peter Rabbit is a little cottontail who is fond of tall tales. He tells them to his mother, and sisters and even his cousin, Benny. Then a run-in with Mr. McGregor’s hungry cat causes Peter to tell one tale too many. Thinking his sisters have been boxed up and mailed to Zanzibar (a place at least 30 miles away!), Peter and Benny set out to rescue the girls. Joined by a motor-mouthed field mouse, a comical chipmunk, a clever squirrel and a pretty kitty named Perky, little Peter finds himself on the biggest adventure of his life! But when the would-be heroes are faced with a wily fox, a got-tempered hedgehog and McGregor’s cat, they have to think fast if Peter and his siblings are ever to see their beloved home again! Peter Rabbit learns that lying can only get you into trouble. In this tale about honesty, courage and loyalty, Peter and his family and friends come to realize that sticking together is safer and more fun.

Dove Review

Come along as Peter Cottontail and his friends go on an adventure they are not soon to forget. Initially, Peter has some trouble telling the truth and gets he and his friends in quite a bit of trouble. But along the way he learns that “white lies” are lies none the less and that friendship and family are important. This classic cartoon adventure will keep your kids entertained through fun and songs while they learn that the truth is something to be valued and encouraged.
