Badger, Rat and Mole are trying to save Toad Hall and its owner, their rich irresponsible airhead playboy friend Toad, from himself, as well as financial ruin, the court and a gang of conspiratorial weasels who have their eye on the place.

Charles Nelson Reilly,
Inspired by Hans Christian Anderson's classic story, the Ugly Duckling teams up with friend Scruffy, and the lovable misfits embark on a journey that helps them realize that their differences are what make them special.

This was one of my most favourite cartoons when I was growing up in the mid/late 1990's and early 2000's. It was recorded off Tele in Xmas '95 when it first broadcast and I loved it. My favourite character was Mole, he was so intelligent and likable. Voiced by Peter Davison (Doctor Who). Rat was good with his signing. Voiced by Richard Briers (A Good Life). I didn't like Badger, he was too stern. Voiced by Paul Eddington (Yes Prime Minister!) and as for Toad, oh No! Run Away! He was so annoying! Voiced by Hugh Laurie (Blackadder). Anywhy, this was a brilliant film. This was from the "The Dream Stone" producer, Martin Gates (I wondered if that guy still doing cartoons now?). I also loved Mole's Christmas. And I heard they did "The Adventures of Toad", this must of been the first part of "The Wind in the Willows" chronicles. I really want to buy a video of that! I miss this cartoon and I hope Channel 4 air it next Christmas! 10/10
