The Adventures of Ichabod and Mister Toad is an American animated family film produced by Walt Disney Pictures and RKO Radio Pictures and released theatrically on October 5th, 1949. The film was directed by Jack Kinney, Clyde Geronimi and James Algar and contained two separate animated vignettes, The Wind in the Willows and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The second tale, adapted the 1820 short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving and told the tale of nervous school teacher Ichabod Crane, who superstitious imagination gets the better of him after hearing the ghostly tale of the Headless Horseman. The two vignettes were later re-released as separate features in 1958.

Notes & Trivia Edit
- Re-titled as The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad on most video releases.
- "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" features the song "The Headless Horseman Rides Again" sung by Bing Crosby as Brom Bones.
- Another, more mature version of the Washington Irving tale of Ichabod Crane is the 1999 live-action feature film Sleepy Hollow directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp. However, the Disney version is actually more faithful to the original short story.
