Product Description

Animated version of Kenneth Grahame's much-loved children's tale. Badger, Ratty and Mole are the woodland and river-dwelling creatures who enjoy a simple, settled existence in the English countryside. However, their brash and egotistical friend, Toad, is renowned for his passing fads and expensive but short-lived enthusiasms. When Toad develops a passion for motor cars, his resultant debts force him to sell his ancestral home, Toad Hall, to the cunning and conniving weasels!

From the Back Cover

In this unique film, the award-winning animators of Cosgrove Halls have brought Kenneth Grahame's characters, Badger, Mole, Ratty and the flamboyant Toad of Toad Hall, magically to life in a beautiful Edwardian country scene. Join these four lively characters in a wonderful production that captures all the fun and enchantment of a fairy tale adventure. With voices by David Jason, Michael Holden, Ian Carmichael, Una Stubbs, Beryl Reid and Richard Pearson.

I first watched this film when I was 5 years old and now (28 years on) as a mother to a 4 year old I can still see the beauty in it. The music, the actors, the way it is shot - they combine to make a wonderful story come to life in the most spellbinding way. To hear David Jason give life to a range of characters is a joy.

The pace is so different to cartoons - but makes it all the better for that. My son loves Mickey Mouse but watched The Wind in the Willows one grim afternoon openmouthed, waiting for the next bit of the story. It's totally captured his imagination and he keeps asking about Mr Mole, Mr Toad and if we can go to the Wild Wood someday.

I'm not one for gushing, but I love this film.

Wind in the Willows is one of the most enchanting childrens books ever written, and though it has been around for years now, it has lost none of its original charm and appeal. This film version is indeed the book come to life, with captivating animation that children and adults alike will appreciate and love. The character's personalities will make you believe they are real, and transport you to a land of make believe, so you can escape along with your children to this magical place of talking toads who ride around in automobiles... A must for every child's collection.

Stop motion animation doesn't get better than this exquisitely rendered Edwardian-era jewel. Flawlessly acted by a wonderful cast, this is the definitive Rat, Mole, Badger and, of course, the irrepressible Toad. Wind in the Willows is one of the cosiest and most comforting books ever written, and this version is wonderfully true to the original. It has enchanted every child in my family and delighted the adults as well.

This is the most exquisite animated film I've ever seen. The story is full of eccentricity and tolerance, the animations true to the illustrated book, and the background scenery is beautifully designed. It is full of humour and wit, and leaves you with a smile on your face. It is great for kids, but adults will see their friends and relatives portrayed in caricature and enjoy it just as much on a different level.

DVD Wind in the Willows

I had this on videotape when my children were small, and it entertained for hours.
I read it as a solitary child, - over and over again, and I found this version with David Jason & co did the stories justice like no other form.
I love it still, and will have it ready for when my children's children are ready.

I loved it as a child, and it hadn't aged when I bought it on DVD as a adult. The picture quality is pretty good and some effort appears to have gone into the additional features on the disk, which is unusual for DVD's so early on the life of the format. As for the feature itself, the humour is very very good, the narrative so well written, a wonderful collection of characters, and excellent animation. What more could we ask for? True all round entertainment that everyone should be given the chance to see at least once.

Format: DVD
When I first saw this on television many, many years ago, the impact was immediate and long lasting! I will focus only on the variety of feelings and emotions that this film sparked in my mind. All the beauty of the intrincate animation, the extraordinarily well designed puppet characters and settings - including props -, and the vocal performances given to Ratty, Mole, Badger and the sublime Toad, and indeed of all of the supporting characters make the whole burst with charm and delight.
Ever since having first seen "The Wind in the Willows", and whenever I watch this DVD, renewed feelings of warmth, happiness, good will for the characters and amazement, and in fact longing to be in that fantasy universe of the single most idyllic depiction (in my estimation) of the simple pleasures of life in the British countryside, start to emerge. I hadn't realised it the first time, but on subsequent viewings it was apparent to me that another element that was prevalent amongst all the wonderful aspects of this Cosgrove-Hall adaptation of Grahame's immortal classic was its prevailing atmosphere - another reviewer rightfully mentioned the word 'heart' -, recreated with such care and love that, again, it does make me want to join those characters in their world, even if it's just during my flights of fancy.
This is not just directed primarily to children, but to all those that, like myself, remain young at heart and spirit. I've given this edition 'only' four stars because I think it could benefit from a new restored version, as this comes from an average quality print of the film. Otherwise it deserves 10 stars!
