Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
A classic Disney tale comes to life in this outrageous comedy adventure filled with high-spirited antics and madcap fun! Bring the whole family along on MR. TOAD'S WILD RIDE, a live-action woodland fantasy adapted from the pages of the classic children's novel THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS. Mr. Toad (Terry Jones) is literally driving his friends crazy with his powerful passion for motorcars -- selling off the town's land to replace each vehicle he crashes! It's up to Mole (Steve Coogan), Rat (Eric Idle), and Badger (Nicol Williamson) to put an end to the lunacy and save "Toad Hall" from falling into the hands of the conniving Weasels, who plan to turn it into a dog food factory! Includes guest star Bernard Hill (LORD OF THE RINGS) and John Cleese and Michael Palin (MONTHY PYTHON).
