The Easter Bunny is a character depicted as a rabbit who brings baskets filled with colored eggs, candy, and sometimes toys to the homes of children, and as such shows similarities to Santa Claus. As a character associated with Easter, he does not often appear in Christmas specials, with the notable exceptions listed below.

Appearances in Christmas specials

The Fairly Oddparents

The Easter Bunny is one of the holiday mascots who is featured in the Nickelodeon animated series The Fairly OddParents, appearing as an antagonist in the series' first Christmas episode, "Christmas Every Day!" When Timmy Turner wishes that Christmas would be everyday, the Easter Bunny joins forces with Cupid, the April Fool, and Baby New Year in a plot to eliminate Santa Claus and end Christmas. The Easter Bunny owns a Dachshund, who he dresses up as a pumpkin-headed dog (claiming it was the "Spirit of Halloween"), since he doesn't like to travel without him.

Although The Fairly OddParents would later get an Easter-themed story (in the storybook Timmy's Eggs-Ray Vision), the Easter Bunny did not appear in that. He does, however, appear at Timmy's Fairy-versary party in the movie Abra-Catastrophe!

The Santa Clause trilogy

The Easter Bunny also appears as a supporting character in The Santa Clause 2 and 3, portrayed by Jay Thomas. In these films, he is a member of the Council of Legendary Figures.

Uncle Grandpa's Christmas Special

In the Uncle Grandpa "Christmas Special", Uncle Grandpa, who was posing as Santa Claus at the time, found himself getting trapped in a dungeon. This dungeon was created by a naughty girl named Sally Smith kidnapped all the Holiday figures from various holidays. One of which was The Easter Bunny.
