I’m Mr. Toad, that’s my name…

Gotta stop that before I face copyright infringement… sigh.

Any-who, one of the awesome benefits of being an Obsessive Enthusiastic Disney Movie Club member is the Disney Movies Anywhere feature. Lucky for me, I also have a little Nook Tablet that allows me to download my digital movies onto it and I can then watch the movies where I want too.

This comes in handy when I’m participating in my least favorite activity in the whole entire world. I’m talking about flying, people. Yikes! Not a fan, nope, nope, nope.

I digress. One of the movies I downloaded was the classic movie package The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad . I thought that I had seen these before, but while I clutched onto my tablet for dear life, I realized that I was seeing it for the first time ever! This is a seriously rare occasion for me, as I have seen most Disney movies multi-times.

While I enjoyed the short films, one thing I couldn’t quite wrap my head around was the pairing of these two stories. They really aren’t similar at all. What does one have to do with the other?

Modern Mouse Radio gives a really good breakdown as to the history behind “package movies”, and the importance of the timing of the films. It’s a very interesting read.

There was definitely something special about this movie. As I watched it from 5-miles in the air, I could feel that it had a more intricate background than I understood at the time.

So, is any one else a fan of this era of Disney films?
