** Not unlike a similar {{Casper}} comic, where the Horseman finally does meet up with his long-lost noggin, who's been going around as the "Horseless Headman".

* ''Film/SleepyHollow'', perhaps the best known version in recent times, is a Creator/TimBurton adaptation which deliberately takes considerable liberties with the original Story, making it radically DarkerAndEdgier. Johnny Depp's Constable Ichabod Crane is a much more heroic figure than Irving's gawkish, pedantic, cowardly schoolmaster, and rather than be cripplingly superstitious, he's a pioneer of forensic sciences who uses reason and deduction to solve crimes and insists that a live human is behind the Horseman murders. In fact, he's basically the ''only'' non-superstitious character in the film, at least during the earlier acts. There are also subtle themes of the complexity of religion, reason, and the supernatural woven throughout the film.

* In 1949 the story was paired with a pared-down version of Kenneth Grahame's ''TheWindInTheWillows'' in Creator/{{Disney}}'s ''[[Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad]]''; the story is narrated (with interspersed songs) by BingCrosby. It's actually surprisingly faithful to the original story (far more so than the very loose ''Wind in the Willows'' adaptation) -- Brom Bones gets his PetTheDog moments, Ichabod's fate is left still ambiguous, and the implication that the Horseman is fake is retained. The animation of the chase scene is particularly impressive, and influenced several later Disney films, notably ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''.

* In a 1976 episode of ''The ScoobyDoo / [[DynomuttDogWonder Dynomutt]] Hour'' called "The Headless Horseman of Halloween," Beth Crane, a descendant of the original Ichabod, is haunted by the Headless Horseman, who wants to gain the Crane Diamond.

''The Sketch-book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent.'' also included another Irving short story destined to become famous: "Literature/RipVanWinkle".

'''"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.

* Similarly, in 1986 ''TheRealGhostbusters'' featured an episode, "The Headless Motorcyclist," with a descendant of Ichabod Crane cursed by a headless apparition (on a motorcycle, naturally) who chases her.

* AmbiguousSituation: The ending deliberately leaves many things ambiguous. Was Ichabod killed by the Horseman or did he just flee from Sleepy Hollow and move somewhere else? Was the Horseman actually supernatural or was it just Brom trying to scare Ichabod off? It's up to the reader to decide and what answer they decide on completely changes the story.
