A delightful animated musical version of Kenneth Grahame’s classic 1908 tale of the adventures of Mole, Rat, Toad and Badger, spun off from a 90-minute feature made in 1983 (with Ian Carmichael as Rat).

TV again returned to Grahame’s Edwardian countryside with a 1995 animation voiced by Rik Mayall (Toad), Alan Bennett (Mole), Michael Palin (Rat) and Michael Gambon (Badger).


A seamless 1996 sequel, The Willows In Winter, written by William Horwood, saw the furry friends in watery trouble with Mole swept away by the icy river.
