Most helpful review
half good half badBy a customer from birmingham, england , 03 May 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]two stories narrated by bing crosby
here we have disneys version of wind and the willows and sleepy hollow
the first wind and the willows was okay not great after already seeing the updated wind and the willows with rik mayall voice of toad much better for the kids
as for the ichabod story was very weird animation character who was tall and skinny with big ears and nose was a little frightening for youngsters to watch but enjoyed the 2nd story much better
i dont know how this was a classic disney but i was left a little disappointed by the ending of the ichabod story which left unanswered questions at the end
but was much better than melody time

worth watchingBy a customer , 23 Feb 2012my three year old daughter enjoyed this dvd. i found it watchable for an old film would recomend to youngsters who like earlier walt disney films
A mixtureBy a customer from Stone , 22 Aug 2008Why not 'Mr Toad and Ichabod'? (That's the order they come in on my system, anyway.) An English author and an American one - why this juxtaposition? Each is a good story (if somewhat adapted to fit, in both cases). Good narration - but why narrated, I wonder? Ah, well: sit back, relax and enjoy. It's not there to strain the brain, but it is a good way to chill out.
Mr Toad is ace - Ichabod naffBy Jon Robertson from Norwich, UK , 15 May 2007The first half of the film - a condensed Wind in the Willows - is fantastic, but the Ichabod Crane segment is rather slow and dreary and not nearly as wild.
loved this when i was a kid...By a customer from London, UK , 11 Feb 2006i confess i haven't seen the mr toad cartoon, but i saw the ichabod cartoon as a child and it really stuck in my memory. i remember it as spooky and weird and interesting - i really liked it, but then i have always liked spooky stories. i haven't seen it since then and i don't knw if most children would go for it, but if your kids like spooky stories they might really like this. i really thought this was great when i was a kid - i hired it on vhs back in the 80s and watched it as many times as i could before it went back to the video shop (which in those days wasn't long!). i think i would have been 8 or 9 at the time.
Neither one thing...By RJNeb2 (934 reviews) from London , 01 Oct 2005The only reason why these two stories come stitched together is because neither was long enough to warrant a separate release, and, apart from the two volumes sitting beside each other on a library shelf, that's their only connection. It makes for an awkward film, with a jaunty yet oddly flat version of 'The Wind in the Willows' followed by an initially slapstick version of 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow' which then turns alarmingly scary with the entrance of the Headless Horseman. Curiosity value is probably its best reason for existing.
