Movie Description:
One spring, Mole (Richard Pearson) decides that he can ignore the spring cleaning for a little longer, and begins a series of adventures with his new friend Rat (Ian Carmichael). They go for a picnic on the riverbank, on a caravan expedition with Toad (David Jason), until Toad switches allegiance to his new car and his reckless driving makes Mole and Rat search out Badger (Sir Michael Hordern) for help in curbing Toad's profligate habits. But Toad gets away from them and gets a twenty-year sentence from the magistrate for theft, reckless driving, and Gross Impertinence. While Toad works his wiles on the jailer's daughter and escapes from jail dressed as a washer woman, Badger tries to guard Toad Hall from the machinations of the Weasels and is badly beaten. And it requires a plan of attack and all four comrades to regain Toad Hall. —Kathy Li

Gold standard version

This is easily the gold standard adaptation of the novel even when they go beyond the novel's storyline. This deserves to be available on streaming services.

Great animation and voice acting - perfection.

A Projected Life review

Far from the storytelling quality of the Disney adaptation from 1949, still this British version made for TV and animated in stop-motion has a lot of charm and is visually quite beautiful. It's probably too slow for modern audiences, but it's a faithful adaptation.

Oh Mr Toad!

Very crude and naive by today's standards, but I think that is part of what makes it so charming.

It is skilfully and artfully directed, lit and filmed with an innocence of a time long past and a sweetness that has definitely been lost by some of the latest generations.

The vocal acting is superb with characterful voices from Michael Horden, David Jason, Richard Pearson and Ian Carmichael, all of whom embody the parts they are playing.

It is the perfect film to watch on a cold winters afternoon with young children and a hot chocolate, however the weasels and the wild wood still genuinely terrify me!

Beautifully crafted, painted and designed.
