The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends

A series of nine animated tales adapted from Beatrix Potter's original books…

Peter Rabbit disobeys his mother's rule not to enter farmer McGregor’s vegetable garden; but the mischievous little bunny just can’t resist the lush and tender green delights contained therein. However, after McGregor spots him, Peter finds himself in danger of being caught and has to run to the gate; all the while hiding from the disgruntled farmer to save himself from being turned into a pie…

and other stories.
