The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad
By: Jane Louise Boursaw
This DVD includes two animated classic tales: "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "The Wind in the Willows". In "Willows," Basil Rathbone narrates the story of J. Thaddeus Toad, owner of Toad Hall and a rambunctious sort prone to the newest fads (like the new-fangled motor car). This lands him in trouble with the wrong crowd, and it’s up to pals Mole, Rat and Badger to save him. "Hollow" is the retelling of Washington Irving’s story set in a tiny New England town. Ichabod Crane is a stuffy schoolmaster intent on winning the love of the fair Katrina from the brutish Brom Van Brunt. Bing Crosby narrates, voices, and sings his way through this crisp and colorful story. DVD also includes "Grim Grinning" and "The Headless Horseman" Karaoke, Disney Storybook and Collectible Gallery. Ages 5 and up. Rated G. 68 min. 1949. Released on DVD Oct. 3, 2000.
