Nickelodeon is premiering a Peter Rabbit holiday special this year. Peter Rabbit's Christmas Tale
will premiere on Friday, December 14 at 7 pm ET/PT. The tale is based on the popular Beatrix Potter children's books. It was produced by Silvergate Media and animated by Brown Bag Films.
In the Christmas story, Peter Rabbit and his friend Benjamin Bunny take over for Mr. Bouncer when he gets sick and can't make the important holiday supply delivery. The rabbits have to brave a blizzard and a fox, named Mr. Tod, in order to deliver gifts and supplies to the residents of the Lake District. Peter and Benjamin meet Lily Bobtail along the way. Lily's character was inspired by author Beatrix Potter. She is described as a strong, smart, independent and curious. She is a nature-lover and an artist.
