I didn't think anyone even remembered this show from the original Nelvana studio. I only ever saw it once on TV. It was originally broadcast on the CBC network in Canada. As the animator of the infamous "Easter Bat" way back when, it's nice to know that my work is still appreciated. There were many versions/tests of that little scene believe it or not. After many revisions, I was more than happy to smash him into the tree. The little wings/arms snapping off was an afterthought, but it turned out quite amusing. And a little warped. I have never seen the show available anywhere for sale. Thanks for the comments folks. KW
