Fun and Fancy Free/The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad
Double bill of Disney animated features which each include two different stories. 'Fun and Fancy Free' (1947) features 'Bongo', based on Sinclair Lewis's 'Little Bear Bongo', which tells the tale of a lonely circus bear who finds love in the wilderness; and 'Mickey and the Beanstalk' which includes live-action sequences and sees Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy in a variant of the familiar tale, with the trio climbing a magic beanstalk in an attempt to rescue a singing harp.
In 'The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad' (1949) Basil Rathbone narrates the tale of 'The Wind in the Willows' in which the foolish Mr. Toad tries the patience of his friends through his obsession with motor cars; and Bing Crosby tells the story of 'Sleepy Hollow' in which nervous teacher Ichabod Crane's budding romance with the lovely Katrina is threatened when he sights the ghostly horseman who reputedly haunts the town.
