Reviews

Disney's eleventh animated feature includes two separate stories. First, Basil Rathbone narrates the tale of 'The Wind in the Willows', in which the foolish Mr Toad tries the patience of his friends Badger, Ratty and Mole through his obsession with motor cars. Next, Bing Crosby tells the tale of 'Sleepy Hollow', in which nervous teacher Ichabod Crane's budding romance with the lovely Katrina is threatened when he sights the ghostly horseman who reputedly haunts the town.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Fun 1 Dec 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good claen fun, with plenty of character... 7 July 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disneys Ichabod and Mr Toad 27 Feb 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Journeys of Ichabod and Mr. Toad 6 Sep 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.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old Memories Brought Back :) 9 Sep 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I was about 4 years old, I would sing The Merrily Song all the time. I never knew it was from an actual film because I had never heard anything more of it since.
It was only when I went to Disneyland Paris and heard the song at the entrance and started singing along. When we went for lunch in the park we went to a place called Toad Hall with a big toad statue outside which seemed very familiar to me. It was only when I came home and had a look on here that I found out it was from an actual film.

I ended up buying this for my mother's birthday as she also really enjoyed the video of Mr Toad and his steed singing.

We watched it and very much enjoyed it. But I would say that Mr Toad's story is a bit funnier than Ichabod's.

Definitely worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disney Classic 27 Feb 2014
By QM1
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is my favourite of the Disney 40's cartoon features with two classic stories (Wind in the Willows and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow) beautifully told with some great music. This, like the other 40's Disney's, has not dated.
