For The Young and the Young at Heart 'Here Comes Peter Cottontail' was a 1971 Easter television special that was based on a 1957 novel by Priscilla and Otto Friedrich entitled 'The Easter Bunny That Overslept', and featured the title song "Here Comes Peter Cottontail". It was originally broadcast on ABC, and in later years, appeared on CBS. In 2006, it was followed by a direct to video sequel, 'Here Comes Peter Cottontail: The Movie'. The name 'Peter Cottontail' is actually a combination of the names of two Beatrix Potter story characters, Cottontail and Peter Rabbit, from the story 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit'. It's a story of how Peter Cottontail became the Easter Bunny.

Beatrix Schuba - Figure Skater Austria's Beatrix (Trixi) Schuba was singlehandedly responsible for changing the scoring rules of figure skating--because she was so boring. Schuba won the women's world championship in both 1971 and 1972 and the gold medal at the 1972 Winter Olympics in Sapporo, Japan. At the time 'compulsory figures' (also known as 'school figures') counted for a huge percentage of a skater's score and gave the sport its name. These consisted of skaters tracing patterns along the ice. Schuba was totally dominant at this aspect of her sport, but she was only a mediocre performer in the free skate. At the 1972 world championships in Calgary, Schuba had such a commanding lead after the compulsory figures that all she needed to do to win was show up for the free skate. That's basically what Schuba did. She came on the ice and skated only for a few seconds--but it was good enough for gold. The goings-on did not sit well with television audiences nor with the crowd in Calgary who felt Canada's Karen Magnussen, an excellent free skater, had been robbed of the gold medal. The next year FIS added a short program to the championships to reduce the importance of the compulsory figures. Schuba opted to retire. Compulsory figures were discontinued altogether in 1990.
