David Jason got a letter from someone saying they saw a house on the market identical to Toad Hall three miles from Jason's house. Jason went looking for it and found it. He said it was wonderful and seemed to go on forever. It had a lake fed by its own spring. It wasn't Toad Hall, but he could imagine living in it. It was twice the value of the house he already owned. He thought about it but had to pay full price when he lost a coin toss (despite his reputation as a wheeler-dealer). But driving up to the house made him realize how much he wanted it. See more »
This series remains true to the spirit of the original with further adventures of Toad and companions. The stop motion animation is quite beautifully rendered and the production values are in every way superb. Pastoral, funny, utterly charming; adults will enjoy this as much as children. This series can be purchased as a boxed set featuring four separate videos, with stories set in each season. Those of you who have enjoyed "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and the Wallace and Gromit films have a treat in store. By the way, Peter Sallis (Wallace) provides the voice of Ratty.
