* AdaptationDistillation: ''The Wind in the Willows'' segment omits all of the subplots involving Rat and Mole, which Walt Disney deemed too boring for a Disney film, which is why the movie had to be released as part of a package film.



* AdaptationalSpeciesChange: Also doubles as NamedByTheAdaptation. The chief Weasel becomes a human named Mr. Winkie.



* Jerkass: The prosecutor at Mr. Toad's trial falls short of being an AmmoralAttorney, but he goes about interrogating the witnesses in such an abrasive and accusatory way that it's hardly a shocker that the judge did not hold Cyril in contempt for accusing the prosecutor of not knowning the "honest way" of dealing.



* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Ratty and Mole both have a mild version of the reaction when they learn that Toad was innocent and they had nearly turned him over to the authorities out of disappointment in him.

** It's worth noting that Ichabod -- who was already scared out of his mind -- ''[[OhCrap completely freaks out]]'' when he gets a good look under the Horseman's collar.

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: The Mr. Toad segment retains the basic personalities of all the main characters from the novel, with the exception of Ratty. Wheras in the original novel and most other adaptations of the story, he is a considerably laidback and easygoing chap (though not above expressing annoyance with Toad's overly reckless behavior), the Disney version turns him into a caring but incredibly stuffy and proper Englishman. He even comes off as a rat version of [[FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends Mr. Herriman]] at times.

* TheAllegedSteed: Ichabod Crane borrows a skin-and-bones, broken down plow horse to ride to Von Tassel's Halloween ball, traveling at a plodding pace. When faced with the Headless Horseman on the way home however, he panics and [[RunOrDie takes off like a champion racehorse,]] outrunning the Horseman's [[HellishHorse black steed.]]
* AmbiguousSituation: Aside from the ending, it's never made clear whether the Headless Horseman is real [[spoiler:or Brom Bones in a disguise, like in the original story.]]

* HeroicMime: A rare animated example. Ichabod's vocalizations are limited to a few singing chords, screams, and introducing himself to a woman during his ThemeSong. His thoughts are explained to the viewer by the narrator (although he does think to himself directly aloud when he imagines marrying Katrina and getting her money).

** The entire chase perfectly zig-zags the line between comedy and horror. The Horseman is always terrifying, but every move by Ichabod to escape is a riot. It's basically [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadrunner Wile E. Coyote]] trying to escape from [[Literature/SilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]].

* TookALevelInJerkass: Ichabod apparently brought out the worst in Brom Bones. Although subverted in that, its pretty justified considering how much Brom had been through, and that Ichabod is the real {{Jerkass}}.

* {{Disneyication}}: Largely averted, at least in the the "Ichabod" segment. Disney added a catchy musical number and some cartoon slapstick, and perhaps made Brom Bones a little meaner, but the GreyAndGrayMorality of the original story is largely preserved, and the end is still left ambiguous for the viewer to decide whether Ichabod really left town or was spirited away by the Headless Horseman. The Mr. Toad segment, on the other hand, changes the story so that Toad is innocent, wheras in the book he really did steal the car.
