Trivia

After Sony Pictures dumped this film after it's 1997 US theatrical release, Terry Jones struggled trying to get this film published, but no Hollywood distributor wanted to take it. That was, until in 1998, Walt Disney Home Video bought the American rights to the film, added in a few sound effects and even changed the title after the name of their ride at The Walt Disney World Resort, "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" (despite it closing at the same year). It was released onto VHS in 1999 and onto DVD in 2004. See more »

Charming!
22 May 1999 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

For those looking for a Monty Python movie, forget it. But for those who have children, or love charming, sweet, enjoyable children's films, check it out. Sure it has funny moments but the movie isn't a comedy, it is a wonderful story about Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

And it IS available in the US now, I rented it at Blockbuster. It only recently came out here, I believe.
