Charles Nelson Reilly,
Michael Palin (who has a cameo as The Sun in the film) previously provided the voice of Ratty in the 1995 animated adaptation of The Wind in the Willows (which this film is based on). The following year, Palin reprised the role for the sequel to the animated film, The Willows in Winter. See more »

When I first heard about this film, my first thought was - I'm going to hate it. I really like Monty Python, it had nothing to do with the fact that they were in it - I just thought I would hate it as I don't usually like it when animal characters are played by humans and don't look anything like the animals. Only when I watched this film (12 years after it was made) did I realize that was actually the point.
Terry Jones is a fantastic Toad. He's got his personality and attitude to a T. Ditto for Badger, Ratty and Mole. The film is rather a comical version of the book, and whilst it stays along the same lines, there are a lot of changes of the storyline. Bits are added, and bits are removed...but I can say i was never once bored while watching this! Go ahead and check it out - I'm glad I did!
