THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS: The classic tale from Kenneth Grahame is brought to the screen in this adaptation from 1983. Some endearing stop-motion effects are deployed for the characters, with Mole, Badger, Rat, and Toad looking quite unlike they ever have before. The story revolves around the odd wiles of Toad, who loves to live life at breakneck speed. His passion for fast cars is on the wane, much to the delight of his friends, but unfortunately they discover he's simply replaced one reckless hobby with another: namely, airplanes! Mole, Badger, and Rat try to persuade him not to go on an around-the-world adventure, but the irrepressible Toad has other ideas!
