Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad

A 1949 animated package film produced by Walt Disney Productions and released by RKO Radio Pictures. The film consists of two segments—the first is based on the 1908 children's novel The Wind in the Willows by British author Kenneth Grahame, and the second is based on the 1820 short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by American author Washington Irving. As the film's animated segments are based on literary works, they are both introduced in live-action scenes set in a library as a framing device. The first segment is introduced and narrated by Basil Rathbone, and the second segment is introduced and narrated by Bing Crosby. Smitten with motorcars, the wealthy and reckless sportsman Mr. Toad soon drives his close friends Mole, Rat, and Angus MacBadger into a worried frenzy! Then meet Ichabod Crane, the spindly schoolteacher who dreams of sweeping the lovely Katrina off her feet—until Brom Bones, the town bully, gets involved.
Trivia: This is one of Disney's four "Package Films." During World War II the studio lost a lot of manpower and resources, which left it with countless unfinished ideas too long for shorts and too short for features. So, inventive as Disney was, it stuck short ideas together into feature-length movies. The other Package Films are Make Mine Music (1946), Melody Time (1948) and Fun & Fancy Free (1947).
