- Not to be confused with the Beatrix Potter character, Peter Rabbit.
Peter Cottontail is a fictional rabbit in the works of Thornton Burgess, first appearing in Old Mother West Wind. He stars in the Easter television special Here Comes Peter Cottontail, which was written by Burgess and Romeo Miller but is not directly based on any of Burgess's books. The term is sometimes used as a euphemism or alternative to the term Easter Bunny.
