Hop is a chip off the old munk - as in chipmunks, Alvin and the Chipmunks. Like the Alvin movies, it has critters interacting with real people. The critter in question - a bunny - is all about music, just like the chipmunks. And like the last chipmunk picture, about the best one can say for Hop is that it adheres to that Hippocratic oath of children's entertainment - "First, do no harm. " The latest semi-toon from the creators of Despicable Me features an adorably animated and lifelike Easter Bunny and a somewhat less animated James Marsden, the hilarious prince from Enchanted.

The thief's MO came right out of a third-grade riddle book, with a slight variation. Q: How do you rob a unique Easter Bunny? A: You neak up on him. That was basically what happened at the Burlington Center Mall in Burlington Township on Sunday when a man grabbed $500 from a photo stand where the Easter Bunny was posing with children, police said. An assistant manager who doubles as the photographer at the Noerr Photo stand in the center court was counting the afternoon's proceeds at 6:15 p.m. when the thief grabbed the cash from the counter and fled out the main entrance into the parking lot, said Lt. Wayne Maver, spokesman for the Burlington Township police.

His squeaky voice echoing off the walls, a wide-eyed Nathan Wolf, in baseball cap and matching jacket, ran full tilt toward the white picket fence in the courtyard in front of J.C. Penney's. Once there, he gazed and pointed and hopped in place, appropriate behavior because what he was pointing at was the Easter Bunny, sitting on a bench in front of a mauve playhouse just beyond the fence. After posing for a photograph on the bunny's lap, Nathan, 4, of Phoenixville, skipped back to his mother.

If the basket your child is tucking into right now is anything like the one my son just got, the milk chocolate bunny and the Zitner's Butter Krak eggs are in a battle for space with toys, clothing, and nonedibles of all kinds. Maybe yours has a new Wii game, or a Webkinz. Perhaps the basket is full of candy, but there's a new bike sitting next to it. Somewhere along the way - probably when we parents started blaming the Easter bunny and the trick-or-treat bag, rather than ourselves, for childhood obesity - Easter became another gift-giving holiday.

A white rabbit with a brown nose was found wandering in a Chester County park Sept. 19 when a kind soul thought to take her to the Chester County SPCA. Three days later, Mamma, as the bunny became known, gave birth to the all-white Flopsy. Mother and daughter were resting comfortably last week, but animal experts said Mamma's story could have ended differently. "If she had not been rescued, she and her baby more than likely would have died," said Chuck McDevitt, the West Chester animal shelter's spokesman.

THE ONLY THING Henri David would tell the Daily News about the hat he'll wear when he leads Sunday's 84th Easter Promenade down South Street is that it won't be 6 feet tall. "I once wore a 6-footer and it collapsed midway through the show," David said. "So we're not going to go there anymore. " Instead, David's eye-popping high-rise will top out at a mere 4 feet and, if history serves, will look like he's wearing an Easter storefront display on his head. "I tend to gild the lily," David admitted.
