  • The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad

    1949. USA. Directed by James Algar, Clyde Geronimi, Jack Kinney. Screenplay by Erdman Penner, Winston Hibler, Joe Rinaldi, Ted Sears, Homer Brightman, Harry Reeves, based on The Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame, and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” by Washington Irving. Narrated by Bing Crosby. Created by the core animators of Disney’s golden age—the famous “Nine Old Men,” a term coined by Walt Disney himself—and featuring visual effects by Ub Iwerks, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad is one of Disney’s most influential animated films. Burton, who started his career as a Disney animator during the final days of this golden age, was clearly inspired by this film’s priggish, nervous Ichabod Crane in his own Sleepy Hollow adaptation. 68 min.
