This review is from: The Adventures Of Ichabod And Mr Toad [1949] [DVD] (DVD)
The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad was another of Disney's features that were really a compilation of shorts, although in this case its seven reel running time is made up of just two stories boasting star narrators. Basil Rathbone makes the case for Toad of Toad Hall being one of the greatest characters in English literature, though the half hour animated version of The Wind and the Willows loses much of the charm and whimsy of the original story in favor of something simpler and more energetic. It's not bad at all taken on its own terms, and Eric Blore is perfect voice casting as Toad, but a little more attention to the story would have been welcome: Toad's prison escape dressed as a washerwoman is all but skipped over when it should have been a gift for a comic sequence. Bing Crosby takes up the narrating duties for the second half, an adaptation of Washington Irving's Legend of Sleepy Hollow complete with 40s songs not far removed from Donald Duck's theme tune. Unfortunately this does feel a bit stretched out until the Headless Horseman makes his belated appearance for an impressive and fiery finale that's not quite impressive enough to take away the feeling that it would have worked much better as a one-reel short.

Unfortunately the picture quality on Disney's DVD isn't as impressive as it could be either, with a lot of white speckles on the picture. Still, with both films released separately for so long in the past - The Wind and the Willows turning up as a short supporting `feature' on Disney theatrical reissues like Alice in Wonderland and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow more often relegated to Disney's TV series - it's good to have them back in their original format.

As with Disneys older cartoon films, the animation is superb, and the characters quite beleivable. I also liked that classical extra cartoon called Lonesome Ghosts [of which i never tire of]. Marvellous Disney material.

This Disney cartoon featuring stories from The Wind In The Willows and The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow.is great fun for all the family. Dating from the Fifties the animation may not be quite up to Pixar standards but really that doesn't detract from the enjoyment.

I love these two Disney shorts. They are witty, clever and brilliantly put togther. We sometimes forget how good the early Disney animations were. I love Pixar too, but seeing these two old storis always makes me smile and cheer.

Watch Icahbod running away from the ghost of the Headless Horseman. Cheer as Rat, Mole & Badger help Toad recover Toad hall from the evil Weasels. It's good clean fun, and easy to watch over & over. Stories that we can all relate too.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Stella Carrier on 6 Sept. 2010
Format: DVD
This dvd has two wonderful cartoon shorts dividing up the story of Mr. Ichabod and Mr. Toad. Mr. Toad winds up on some grand journeys with some great friends, and ends up reclaiming his good name after being framed. Mr. Toad's wonderful friends are instrumental in helping him reclaim his innocence. Mr. Ichabod plays a man full of charm and a love of life that gets along well with others. It is a great cartoon for both adult and kids, but there are certain scenes in the Ichabod cartoon that may be a little on the intense side for children under 3 years old. What I also like are the bonuses included. One of the bonuses involves playing a game where you must answer questions correctly to get to Toad Hall. If you can answer tham without getting four tires then you can get a nice bonus at the end in the form of another cartoon short. I played the game and thought it was pretty fun, plus the mini cartoon that I got to see as a result of it was pretty creative (a car version of the little engine that could). Watching this dvd is definitely worth it, especially considering the bonuses included.

In the period immediately after World War II, the Disney studio was hurting financially. In an effort to turn things around, they released several features that combined two or more stories into one longer movie. Given the season, I decided now was a great time to rewatch The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad. It had been a few years since I last watched it, but my memories of the film pretty much held up, for better or worse.

The first of the two stories in this film is Kenneth Graham’s The Wind in the Willows. Or a small portion of the novel. (I haven’t read the book in probably 30 years, but I do remember it being much more involved than the story presented here.) Basil Rathbone is our narrator as we hear the tale of Mr. Toad (voiced by Eric Blore). He’s the heir and owner of the prestigious Toad Hall, but his constant desire for speed gets him into serious trouble. The focus of the film is his obsession with getting a car and the trouble that causes for his friends Ratty (Claude Allister), Mole (Colin Campbell), and Badger (Campbell Grant).

Honestly, this story is probably best known these days from Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride at Disneyland (and the memories of the ride at Walt Disney World). Watching the movie again, I noticed several of the characters actually show up in the ride; I thought they were just random people in the ride with no real connection to the movie. Still, the ride goes off in a crazy direction that has nothing to do with any other version of the story.

But let’s get back to this film. There is a courtroom scene that, while essential to the plot, will probably bore the kids. I know I wasn’t that impressed with it, and I’m an adult.
