“Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo”

The enchanted cast of the 100 Acre Wood delights in this spring-time, Easter-themed tale. Set on Easter Day, this classic feature is all about the joy and excitement of the day according to Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Roo. Unfortunately, Rabbit has other ideas and is focused more on spring cleaning than on Easter eggs and fun. Can Rabbit’s friends encourage the stressed bunny to put down the broom and join the fun? This heartfelt story will remind you to embrace the moment.

“It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown”

The gang is back together, and they are ready to decorate eggs, do some shopping and celebrate Easter. Of course, nothing is ever simple when Charlie Brown, his dog Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang are involved. Linus, Charlie Brown’s best friend and most thoughtful Peanuts member, can’t wait to tell his friends and your little ones all about the Easter Beagle. For a unique perspective on this egg-filled and bunny- (beagle) happy holiday, you and your family should take a moment to rejoice with Charlie Brown and his friends.


A mix of live action and animation, “Hop” is a fun romp about a reluctant, sassy Easter Bunny and his bumpy search to find out if he has what it takes to be the real Easter Bunny. Actor Russell Brand voices the main bunny and E.B. James Marsden plays Fred who, like E.B. is also struggling to find his way. Together they forge an unlikely, hilarious and at times contentious friendship. “Hop” is a fast-moving, prank-filled yet touching story about living up to one’s potential.

“Easter Parade”

Introduce your kids to the wonder of a big-budget, old-Hollywood musical featuring two of Tinseltown’s most legendary stars — Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. Filled with amazing dance numbers, incredible tunes, fun and, of course, Easter, this classic musical is worth a modern-day viewing.

“Max & Ruby: Easter with Max & Ruby”

No Easter celebration or springtime welcome is complete without sweet, fun-loving and dedicated siblings Max and Ruby. These bunnies are sure to make your little ones laugh out loud as Ruby tries to keep her little brother Max out of trouble throughout several episodes of the beloved television series.

“Yogi the Easter Bear”

The antics of Yogi Bear and his sidekick Boo Boo are always a joy to watch, but “Yogi the Easter Bear” is definitely special, especially if you and your family want to get into the Easter spirit quickly. The Easter Jamboree is underway at Jellystone Park, but something is missing — the Easter Bunny, who has been bunny-napped. Will Yogi and Boo Boo be able to rescue the famous bunny in time for Easter? Cheer on your favorite, picnic basket-stealing bears as they try to rescue Easter.

Filled with classic characters, colorful plots and Easter-themed stories, these specials are designed to keep your day hopping with fun, family and holiday memories.
