Consensus: This Disney two-fer may not be the most reverent literary adaptation, but it's remarkably crafted and emotionally resonant.

Disney's doubleheader is intermittently witty adaptation of classic literature, narrated by Bing Crosby (who also sings) and Basil Rathbone.

[Blu-ray Review] Disney's 2-in-1 Blu-ray release of "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad" and "Fun & Fancy Free" is an irresistible deal that should become a mainstay in any Disney fan's high-def library.

Why did they get together good actors for such a stupid Disney movie? I don't know but they seem to do that a lot, and this movie is no different.
