The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad Trivia
- Disney’s original title for the movie was, “Two Fabulous Characters.” Apparently, the only reason these two stories are linked together is the fact that their main characters are “prone to disaster”.
- In “The Wind in the Willows”, Angus MacBadger tells Ratty and Mole that something has to be done about Toad as he’s spending too much money. This was a sly dig at Roy O. Disney who was always complaining to the animators about his brother Walt Disney for spending too much money.
- During the Ichabod tale, the title character is frightened by some reeds whistling in the wind. The same drawings were first used in the Disney short The Old Mill.
- Rat describes Toad’s latest obsession as “Motor Mania”. This is the title of a classic Goofy short which would be released the following year.
- To save money on animation, Katrina was modeled closely after Grace Martin from Make Mine Music. She also greatly resembles Slue Foot Sue from the “Pecos Bill” segment of “Melody Time.”
