Fridge: The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad

The Adventures of Mr. Toad:

  • Fridge Logic: It wasn't necessary to get the deed. The very presence of the Weasels in Toad Hall confirms the Defense's story.
    • More of a meta example, but why was "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" so scary? There's no horror in the Wind in the Willows part of the movie - all Nightmare Fuel comes from the last 5 minutes or so of the Sleepy Hollow part.
      • Also, just how DID Toad manage to get out of his cell unnoticed? Yes, he's Disguised in Drag, but unlike the book, there's no reason for a woman to be hanging around a prison cell.
  • Fridge Brilliance: The reason Toad is only FRAMED for theft is because in the 40's, there was a very strict rule that in any movie, the audience should not feel ANY sympathy for the criminal, so having him actually steal the motorcar wouldn't make him very sympathetic.
