A Funny, Secular, Easter Addition To the Ice Age Movies

We are a big fan of the entire ice age series, though; at some points, it does take an evolutionary stance within the film. Within the Great Egg-scapade that stance is pretty subliminal with some sly remarks made by the characters meant to be funny. Essentially The Great Egg-scapade is a short film in the Ice Age series detailing how the easter bunny came about from Sid's failed baby-sitting venture and the prank of a bunny who hates the group. All of the characters are in this one, and it is really well written and funny. There is some comedic slapstick humor within this film.
