* {{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.

* AccidentalTruth: In the ''Sleepy Hollow'' segment, Brom Bones seemingly made up the story about the Headless Horsemen to terrorize the superstitious Ichabod Crane. It turns out the Headless Horseman really does exist, and goes after Ichabod Crane in the end.

* AnthropomorphicZigZag: Cyril Proudbottom. When he's introduced, he's a TalkingAnimal walking on all fours like a real horse. But for the rest of the segment he is seen walking upright and even successfully disguises himself as a human being.

** The weasels as well to some degree. In the original story, while incredible jerkasses who steal Toad's house while he is in prison, requiring Toad and his friends to drive them out in the climax, they aren't truly villains. In the Disney film however, turns them into full-fledged criminals who use the naive Toad as a fall guy for their auto-theft by tricking him into trading Toad Hall for the stolen motor car. Early versions of the film played this trope even more so, by having them nearly ''shoot'' the gang just to prevent them from exposing them, only to be saved just barely by the police showing up upon hearing the comotion.

* HopeSpot: For Ichabod, when he notices to his relief that all the creepy noises that has been freaking him out during his ride home are just various nature sounds - the rapping of willows against a log, croaking frogs, crickets, etc. THATS when the ''real'' Horseman shows up.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:Brom opens a cellar trap door to get Ichabod to fall in since Ichabod had danced atop it while it was closed but without knowing it was there. Seconds later, Tilda bursts out of the pantry where Brom had tried blocking her in to get rid of her, and as she makes a mad dash across the dance floor to get to him, oblivious to how he finds her repulsive, Brom steps back in terror, forgetting the cellar is open. As he falls in, the door slams shut, leaving Tilda to [[BreakingTheFourthWall wonder where he went]] and Ichabod to continue dancing uninterrupted with Katrina.]]
