Literary Toons: The Easter Story (The Greatest Adventure: Stories From The Bible, 1989)

The Greatest Adventure: Stories From The Bible DTV series ended with 1989's "The Easter Story", which tells of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus (Joe Spano, ex-Hill Street Blues), as seen through the eyes of Mogi (Frank Welker), Margo (Darleen Carr), and Derek (Darryl Hickman). Richard Thomas (ex-The Waltons) guests as Mark. Michael Rye is the narrator.

I wasn't too fond of the gimmick of time travel in this series. Veteran writer Dennis Marks adapted the interpretation from the Gospel According to Mark, and would've been better served without the gimmick.

Rating: B.
