1. It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown (1974)
Leave it to Charlie Brown and friends to take part in the colorful traditions of Easter, such as painting Easter eggs and having an egg hunt. In case you forgot, Linus is determined to believe in the Easter beagle, as Snoopy tries to fill the role for him.
2. The Easter Bunny Is Comin’ to Town (1977)
Continuing the love for Fred Astaire’s Claymation mail-carrier character from Santa Clause Is Comin’ to Town, this movie provided answers to the many letters sent in to the Easter Bunny. From there the story begins, and you are later left with the warm nostalgic feeling as the ending song starts and the mail-carrier’s train rides through the town.

4. Yogi the Easter Bear (1994)
“When there’s candy in the air, you’ll find—who else? Yogi Bear!” The story starts with Yogi as his cheerfully oblivious self, but later finds himself in search of the kidnapped Easter Bunny in hopes of taking him back to Jellystone.
