TRR: Episode 29, “The Velveteen Rabbit”



Just in time for Easter, or any time for that matter, we present for your consideration the story of the Velveteen Rabbit. Elements of the story have been around and incorporated into other stories both before and since Margery Bianco first conceived the tale, including a vague reference to The Blue Fairy in Pinocchio, and later, to the Lion King who ruled over the Island of Misfit Toys in “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
