Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, The (1949)

The story of Ichabod Crane, a mild-mannered school teacher who goes to the small country town of Sleepy Hollow and falls in love with beautiful heiress Katrina van Tassel much to the annoyance of local hunk Braum Bones.

9/10

This easy-to-miss Disney classic is a terrifically entertaining little movie. Originally released in 1949 as “The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad” before a solo theatrical outing in 1958, this movie is only half of Disney’s 11th feature-length animation (the first half being The Wind in the Willows). The animation is superb (the dancing is fantastic), the story, characters and comedy all work and Bing is perfect as, well, everybody.

This Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, The movie contains scary scenes.

Classified U by BBFC. Universal: Suitable for All.

Available on DVD.
