Cosgrove Hall wanted David Jason to play Rat, but Jason preferred Mr. Toad. Everyone who had voiced Toad had made him unpleasant, but Jason made him a lovable show-off. After he recorded an audition, he got the part. See more »
As a child I ADORED The Wind in the Willows. The animation was beautiful with its picturesque scenery and realistic characters. The cast (including the likes of Sir David Jason and Peter Sallis) was fabulous and helped create a realistic world. The story lines were funny and kept true to the books whilst adding the flare of television. The stories were funny yet endearing and never over-the-top. There was just the right amount of silliness and was sometimes a little bit scary (nothing nightmareish though).
Children and adults alike will love this series, whether they are long-time fans or new.
A cherished classic, for those who love vintage animation and storytelling!!!
