The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad

SO no Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from 1985 available so

The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad- 1949, starring Bing Crosby

He says- Very entertaining animated doubleheader from Disney; a witty adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, about the puckish residents of Toad Hall centering on Toad's infatuation with motorcars, narrated by Basil Rathbone; and a broad, cartoony version of Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," with a genuinely scary climax, narrated (and sung) by Bing Crosby.  3 stars.

I say-  This is one of those ok Disney cartoons.  Nothing really great here, other than that Mr. Toad spawned a Disney ride.  Nothing really bad either, just not really a movie in my opinion.  2 stars.
