A beautifully animated cartoon.
16 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

The Willows in Winter continues the story of Ratty,Mole,Toad and Badger and the other animals.We are also joined by moles nephew.Mole goes missing and the animals look for him.Toad also gets an airplane but crashes it on to someones conservatory.It turns out the persons conservatory is the judge who put him in prison in the last story.I will not give away too much of the plot and leave that for you to see what happens.

The animation in this is beautiful.It is very charming,enjoyable and funny.The character voices are well chosen,especially Rik Mayal as Toad,he is a winner.
