Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The sequel to the made-for-TV animated special Adventures of Mole, Adventures of Toad is one of several British-produced cartoons based on Kenneth Grahame's whimsical The Wind in the Willows. The lord of Toad Hall, capricious Mr. Toad is a source of great concern for his close friends Mole, Badger and Rat; it seems that whenever Toad is enthusiastic about something, trouble quickly follows. Right now, Toad is obsessed with his flashy new motorcar--and sure enough, he is ultimately arrested for driving too fast. Upon being sprung from jail, Toad finds out that his stately manor has been taken over by the rowdy Weasel gang, prompting his friends to formulate a scheme to help Toad regain what is rightfully his. In America, Adventures of Toad premiered over cable's Disney Channel.
