Road Runner Hour on the River
30 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was getting along swimmingly with the river characters, and those of the deep, dark woods as well. I enjoyed the characters of Mole, Rat and Badger very much. The illustration was also very well done, through-out. I enjoyed the choice of colors.

Unfortunately, at a certain point, it seemed that this story was going to be focused primarily on loud, narcissistic, vain, boisterous Toad. Now, while I'll freely admit that one meets all types at a riverbank, or in the mansions there-upon, the serenity of the story was shredded by this agitating, impulsive amphibian.

For me, it ruined the whole story, and I was unable to watch past the point where Toad was preparing for his "song" at the party, having, with the help of his friends, chased the ferrets, stoats and weasels out of his ornate, voluminous abode. In contrast to other animated features, such as Watership Down, The Wind In The Willows seems to have been written with much more coarse excitement and soft violence. I regret that this otherwise-charming story fell victim to our frenetic, aggressive way of life.

I heard nary a wind, and saw bare-little Willow. The story needs to be re-written with Toad intermittently appearing, returning from his various and sundry jaunts and sojourns, with something valuable to add to the enjoyment and education of Mole, Rat, and Badger, or whomever else he should meet. Juxta-pose and integrate him with Badger and create some balance.., maybe even some poetry.
