** It's very debatable how much of a downer this is [[spoiler:regardless whether or not Ichabod actually dies or just gets scared out of town]]. For some, mostly kids, Ichabod comes across as an innocent victim who's just trying to get the girl. But for others, he's a selfish bastard trying to get the money from a rich girl's father through marriage, which is in fact very accurate to the original story.

* GettingCrapPasttheRadar: In the newspapers that show Mr. Toad's exploits, some of the side stories have such lovely titles as "Girl's Body Exhumed" and "Bandits killed in shootout". While it is TruthInTelevision that Victorian England was not a pleasant time, nobody was expecting Disney to actually acknowledge it in a movie made for children.

Released in [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1949]], '''''The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad''''' is the 11th film in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, and the last of the six (or seven, if you count ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'') "[[AnthologyFilm package films]]" created by the studio in the '40s (the next animated feature from the studio was ''Cinderella''). Like ''Disney/FunAndFancyFree'', it is a collection of two short movies, bundled together to make one feature length movie. Despite the name, the two title characters' stories -- which have nothing to do with one another -- are actually presented in the reverse order:

* '''''The Adventures of Mr. Toad''''' or '''''Literature/TheWindInTheWillows''''': Narrated by Basil Rathbone, it stars J. Thaddeus Toad (voiced by Eric Blore), owner of the fabulous Toad Hall. His various obsessions combined with his reckless personality causes a large amount of damage to the town, and thus has acquired a large amount of debt. His latest obsession, motor cars, gets him into trouble with the law. Sent to jail for stealing a car, he breaks free and sets out to clear his name.
* '''''The Story of Ichabod Crane''''' or '''''Literature/TheLegendOfSleepyHollow''''': Narrated by Music/BingCrosby, it stars the lanky Ichabod Crane (also voiced, like most of the male characters, by Crosby), a newcomer to the small town of Sleepy Hollow as their new schoolmaster. He becomes smitten with the richest woman in town, and competes with the local men for her affections, but soon finds himself facing off with the Headless Horseman one Halloween night.
