My husband and I are continuing our quest to watch all the classic Disney animated movies in order. Last week we watched The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949)! I loved this movie! Mr. Toad is a riot! The story is fun and has a great plot line. The story o Ichabod is funny(well, until the end) and I love the accompanying music.
Here is some trivia courtesy of IMDb!
- Rat describes Toad’s latest obsession as “Motor Mania”. This is the title of a classic Goofy short which would be released the following year (Motor Mania).
- There was a legend that said that one animator stopped worked on “The Wind In the Willows” to join the Army during World War II and then returned four years later to continue work on the exact same film sequence.
- Disney’s original title for the movie was, “Two Fabulous Characters.” Apparently, the only reason these two stories are linked together is the fact that their main characters are “prone to disaster”.
