Two longish short films (released separately on video). The first is an amusing, beautifully animated tale of Mr Toad, very loosely based on The Wind and the Willows: it is more for children than purists. The second is a more faithful version of Washington Irving's Hallowe'en story - featuring one of Disney's most exciting chases and a climax which small children may find disturbing.
