A Raccoon, A Rabbit, and An Owl

Help me identify an old animated movie that involved a raccoon, a rabbit, and an owl.

When I was growing up (late 80s early 90s), I used to watch this animated movie whose main characters were a raccoon, a rabbit, and an owl. I don't remember much else about the movie except these two scenes:

* Somewhere in the beginning they walk down a staircase in a treasure chest to a different "world"

* Somewhere near the ending they pass by a place that is full of coloured Easter Eggs

This was my favourite childhood movie for a long time, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was called. For a while I thought I hallucinated the whole thing, but then two years ago I watched a Christmas TV show that had the same characters, but in CG. (Plus a wolf that had to choose between his wolfy instincts and his values, or something like that.)

Does anyone know the movie I am talking about? Help resolve this childhood mystery.

Lassie's Rescue Rangers?

Response by poster: No, not that; the movie had nothing to do with Lassie, and there weren't many (if any) humans. Also, the settings were more fantasy-esque; LRR seemed to be rooted more in reality.

My Neighbor Totoro ?

Could it be Baby Comes to Mapletown? I've never seen it, and it doesn't list an owl, but it has a rabbit, a raccoon, and a wolf.

Response by poster: Definitely NOT Totoro because (a) this movie was English (b) I only watched Totoro recently. Baby Comes To Mapletown doesn't look right...

The wolf is in the CG version but not in the movie I'm thinking of.

Best answer: Could the Christmas show have been A Christmas Adventure from a Book Called Wisely's Tales? (Boy, what an unwieldy title.) It's computer-animated and features, among others, Wisely Owl, Rock 'n Raccoon, Honey Bunny, and Wolfpack Leader.

The title seems to imply (to me) that there are others of "Wisely's Tales," but I can't find any other references to it or the characters, in book or tv/movie form. So if that is the right Christmas show, it might just resemble the movie which you seek, rather than be directly related to it.

Response by poster: alyxstarr: YES! That's the one! Thank you!

Too bad about the no-other-references thing...but that's a good place to start, at least.

*still wonders if shes hallucinated the movie*
