Movie Info

For many aficionados of Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, the definitive film version was seen in Disney's omnibus animated feature Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949). Even so, this 1983 British adaptation is every bit as accomplished and worthwhile as the Disney film. Consisting of three short stories, each lasting about 20 minutes, the film features most of Grahame's beloved anthropomorphic animal characters, specifically Toad, Rat, Badger, and Mole. The animation was accomplished with a stop-motion process, reminiscent of George Pal's Puppetoons. The Wind in the Willows was directed by Mark Hall, of Count Duckula and Danger Mouse fame. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Wind in the Willows

I really like the book this is based upon, and this is a pretty faithful adaptation with cool stop motion animation...so I have few complaints about this adaptation of "The Wind in the Willows." If you want a classy old school kids movie, this is a good one to seek out.
