"Here Comes Peter Cottontail" is a popular Easter song composed in 1950 by Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins. Due to immense popularity of Gene Autry's Christmas songs Here Comes Santa Claus and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer that Nelson and Rollins had written, the duo asked Autry to record it. Nelson and Rollins also wrote non-Easter lyrics to the tune that later appeared on the 1963 Walt Disney Records Peter Cottontail Plus Other Funny Bunnies and their Friends
It is often regarded as one of the most popular Easter songs of all time, and often features on TV commercials around the Easter period.
