Cartoon Production Information:

The film was completed in 1985, but its network debut was delayed several times.

Based on Kenneth Grahame's 1908 story of the same title.

"Wind in the Willows" sung by Judy Collins.

Songs: "When I'm Messing Around in Boats" (Ratty), "We Don't Have Any Pate De Foie Gras" (Mole, Ratty), "Messing Around in Cars" (Mr. Toad), "Mr. Toad" (Toad), "I Hate Company" (Badger), "A Party That Never Ceases" (Weasels), "For He's A Jolly Good Toady."

This special was a sort of contractual obligation. Rankin Bass Productions was obliged to do a series of specials for ABC. Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass met with the network, discussing several ideas. Rankin and Bass suggested "The Wind in The Willows," and ABC agreed to that immediately.

Several characters, including Mr. Toad, appeared earlier in the Rankin Bass Productions series "The Reluctant Dragon and Mr. Toad," which aired on ABC.
