Run Rabbit Run

Peter Rabbit and friends to return to children’s television, but this time he won’t lose his coat - Times Online

...the robust rural scenes of the original books, which included Peter’s father being baked in a pie and Peter losing his blue coat while being chased by Farmer McGregor wielding a garden rake, will be cut.

“Peter Rabbit running away from a farmer with a shotgun would now be inappropriate,” Lord Alli, Chorion chairman, said. “We’re trying to avoid frightening anyone.”

I wonder if there is a market for a live action remake of the original stories.

Here at the Marlborough Pub in North Gower, Ontario, folks would call anyone who uttered a statement like that a complete wiener.

It may be a little hoary but "Enjoy the series, Enjoy the Stew!"
TTFN ;)

I agree, a shotgun is no good here, it makes too much mess. An airgun is a far better choice.
