Two stories: one good, one less so. 'The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad' is another Disney package film. It's probably one of the better ones to be fair, though still fails to truly entertain. The first story featuring Mr. Toad is fairly enjoyable, while the one with Ichabod starts off solidly but by its end I found myself less interested. Bing Crosby and Basil Rathbone do well as narrators, while the animation is more than passable. Again, like 1948's 'So Dear to My Heart' from Disney, it's nothing to hate on but I wouldn't class it as anything other than average though. /copied directly from my Letterboxd review\
Basil Rathbone starts this double feature off with his engaging narration of a very much shortened version of "The Wind in the Willows". "Toad" is a bit of an adventurer. Indeed, he might even be the world's first faddist! Running amok the countryside with his new equine friend "Cyril" pulling a great yellow wagon, he is causing no end of stress for his friends "Angus MacBadger", "Ratty" and "Moley". Finally , they apprehend him and confine him to his room - but nope, that's no good. He shimmies down from his window and is soon in the possession of a shiny new motor car. How did he get it? Well that's soon a matter for the law and things are going to ge even messier for the friends and he is imprisoned and they have to get to the bottom of a dastardly plot involving some weasels and Toad Hall itself. Then, we morph seamlessly onto the equally mellifluous tones of Bing Crosby who takes us through a not so enjoyable interpretation of "Sleepy Hollow". We follow the almost vulture-like "Ichabod Crane" as he arrives in the village as the school teacher and who then sets about wooing local heiress "Katriona" - much to the chagrin of local beefcake "Bron". "Crane" seems to have the upper hand at every turn until the younger man hits on a idea to, quite literally, resurrect a creature from the depths of the graveyard to finally remove this obstacle from his path to true love (and a decent sized fortune too). The animations are old style Disney with plenty of vivid colours and, certainly for "Toad, characterful animations. The second story features just a little too much music - our renowned crooner manages at least two songs, and the characterisations rely much more on their physical attributes and less on their "acting" if you will. It's still an enjoyable hour that showcases two enduring stories well, and it's not just for the children either.
Emil Svensson lives with his mother and father, little sister Ida, farmhand Alfred, and maid Lina on a picturesque farm in Småland. He is an unusually lively little boy, who just can't resist trying out every whim that enters into his white-haired head. Always with the best intentions in mind, because he is a good-hearted child, but often with catastrophic results, especially for his short-tempered father. As a result, Emil spends a lot of quality time in the wood shed carving wood figurines and waiting for Anton's temper to cool down. And the father's patience is certainly tried, as Emil gets his head stuck in the family's only soup bowl, hoists little Ida up the flag pole, and arranges a lavish Christmas party for the poor.
Emil's reputation for being a troublemaker makes the Svensson family's neighbours take up a collection for sending the boy off to America. But even if he among other unfortunate mishaps causes his father to get stuck in the outhouse window and get bitten by crawfish, all is forgotten when he skillfully wins the family a free horse. And when Alfred the farmhand gets seriously ill, Emil puts his own life on the line, venturing into a snow storm to get his best friend to a doctor before it is too late.
Nursing a piglet back to life because it's the runt of the litter earns Emil a friend for life.
