Narrated by Basil Rathbone and Bing Crosby.
In the tradition of grand animated classics, Disney's 11th animated masterpiece introduces two literary classics to the screen. Here, The Wind in the Willows and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow come together in one fabulous adventure - in its own theatrical form.
This movie has a dual appeal for adults and kids. Kids can enjoy the caricature style of the animation as well as the wonderful story-telling voice of Bing Crosby. Those of us more advanced in age can focus on the plotline and can let the wonderful chill of the story settle into us.
If you examine the characters of Sleepy Hollow, there is not one virtuous person to be found. Ichabod, though undeserving of his fate, was a gluttonous, prideful, lustful, greedy newcomer to town. Brom Bones, his main adversary, lazes about town coursing with envy and wrath. The two pine for Katrina Van Tassel, the vain daughter of a wealthy local farmer. The three live in a town that is enchanted by their talents as well as their faults, creating an atmosphere that serves to intensify their already seething undercurrent of emotion. Watching this thirty minute animated story will leave you reflecting on human nature: was Washington Irving's tale a believable story? If so, how does this reflect on our personal experiences?
