Overview

The Wind in the Willows: Concise version of Kenneth Grahame’s story of the same name. J. Thaddeus Toad, owner of Toad Hall, is prone to fads, such as the newfangled motor car. This desire for the very latest lands him in much trouble with the wrong crowd, and it is up to his friends, Mole, Rat and Badger to save him from himself. - The Legend of Sleepy Hollow: Retelling of Washington Irving’s story set in a tiny New England town. Ichabod Crane, the new schoolmaster, falls for the town beauty, Katrina Van Tassel, and the town Bully Brom Bones decides that he is a little too successful and needs “convincing” that Katrina is not for him.

Viewing Notes

Found this on the shelf at my library. Haven’t seen since I was a kid. I think. Nice surprise to find Basil Rathbone narrating.

Didn’t realize Bing Crosby narrated the Sleepy Hollow segment. Kinda hard to believe that Disney created a ride based on Mr. Toad. That segment is just okay (and not one I remembered at all). The Sleepy Hollow story is the one I always remember from my youth.
