Headscratchers / The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad
Anybody notice that, for all the talk about Disneyfication, their version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is more true to the book than the Tim Burton version?
That's because Burton's version was a loose retelling and not the actual story, much like how his Alice in Wonderland wasn't meant to be an exact retelling of those books. Hence why his movie is titled just Sleepy Hollow instead of the book's (and Disney's) title The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
At the same time, it's a simple tale anyways, making this into a Feature Length movie would take a lot of Adaptation Expansion.
During the Headless Horseman song, Ichabod's got a pile of...pink mush on his plate. What was that suppose to be? Mashed potatoes? Hasty pudding?
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.
Maybe the prison guards thought it was a conjugal visit?
