The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949)

Jack Kinney, Clyde Geronimi and James Algar direct Basil Rathbone, Bing Crosby and Eric Blore in this animated package presentation of The Wind in the Willows and Sleepy Hollow from Walt Disney.

A fun little double with surprisingly modern animation, a 1940s hip yet faithful adaptation of the sources and captivating central characters in manic Toad and gangly Ichabod. The scarier chases in both tales are truly impressive but on the whole this is a lot of easy, relaxed fun.
