** Many adaptations portray the Horsemen using a jack o lantern for a head even though that is a bit of a misconception. The Horsemen of the original tale is out looking for his own head or a replacement. The one that chases Ichabod is carrying a pumpkin but it is on the horse's saddle and he tosses it forward as a projectile. With the two major theories being A. It's Brom Bones tossing a pumpkin to make Ichabod think it's a severed head or B. The horsemen needs some kind of weapon to get his prey off a horse, a pumpkin will do. Either way if the Horseman could just use a jack o latern for a head he'd probably have gone home already. Likewise if the Horseman was real he damn sure wouldn't have thrown a perfectly good head at an annoying schoolmaster either.

** It doesn't help that for most readers the Headless Horseman is [[RuleofCool just too cool of a villain]] to be only a hoax. He's become one of the most famous horror icons. Come on, a cackling headless horseman who prowls the roads looking for heads? How is that not awesome?
** In some ways this suffers loss from people forgetting how it was originally published. Had you have read the entire Sketchbook you'd find this story is the third story to feature supernatural antics. Rip Van Winkle has the ghosts seem completly real and even swears to the tale. The Spectre Bridegroom is believed to be supernatural by most of the characters even though the reader knows the whole thing is a ScarecrowSolution. By the time you get to this tale, the idea that everything is not wrapped up is clearly done on purpose by Irving. Also debunking some claims the supernatural was never in Irving's attempts, but considering people have little memory of the sketchbook nor that Sleepy Hollow and Rip are connected and let alone there was a third one in there might not even be common among some English teachers lecturing on the subject,

* BrainsEvilBrawnGood: Ichabod, the intellectual schoolmaster, is portrayed as weak-willed, venal and effeminate, while Brom Bones, the barrel-chested stallion-breaker, is portrayed as honorable, or at least more honorable than Ichabod. On the other hand, Ichabod is a deeply superstitious man, in contrast to the rational Bones, so in a sense, Brom is actually the smarter of the two.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: If Ichabod did survive, he went on to a successful career as a judge; it appears he's stopped trying to scrounge money off others and earned his fortune all by himself.

''The Legend of Sleepy Hollow'' (also known informally and somewhat incorrectly as "The HeadlessHorseman") is a short story by American author Washington Irving, first published in February 1820 as part of a series of stories later collected as ''The Sketch-book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent.'' As with a number of Irving's stories, the plot is based on German legend (particularly in the re-told versions of Karl Musäus), transplanted to a New York state setting, and mingled with Irving's genial satire of human, and particularly American, foibles.
