Trivia

Cosgrove Hall wanted David Jason to play Ratty, but Jason preferred Mr Toad. Everyone who had voiced Toad had made him unpleasant, but Jason made him a lovable showoff. After he recorded an audition, he got the part. See more »

Delightful
27 March 2000 | by (Maine, USA) – See all my reviews

This series remains true to the spirit of the original with further adventures of Toad and companions. The stop motion animation is quite beautifully rendered and the production values are in every way superb. Pastoral, funny, utterly charming; adults will enjoy this as much as children. This series can be purchased as a boxed set featuring four separate videos, with stories set in each season. Those of you who have enjoyed "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and the Wallace and Gromit films have a treat in store. By the way, Peter Sallis (Wallace) provides the voice of Ratty.
