Disney Animation Collection: Vol. 5: Wind in the Willows from Disney is a collection of three classic Disney animated shorts that are based on the evocative story by British author Kenneth Grahame. The movie was released in 2009 and offers three Walt Disney animated versions of Grahame's classic stories, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. This collection offers the stories in the best quality ever seen on DVD.

The first story in the collection is Mr. Toad, which tells the story of Mr. Toad, a wealthy and reckless toad who is addicted to the latest fad in early 20th century England - motor cars. He becomes so obsessed with this new form of transport that he ends up stealing a car and going on a high-speed joy ride that lands him in prison. With the help of his friends Mole, Rat, and Badger, he manages to escape from prison and sets about trying to clear his name.

The second story is The Wind in the Willows, a classic tale of animal friends and their adventures. Mole, who is tired of cleaning his underground home, ventures out and meets Rat, a confident and carefree creature who introduces him to the idyllic English countryside. During their travels, they meet Toad, who is preoccupied with his love of motor cars and seemingly unable to control his desire to acquire and try new vehicles. Together, they all come under attack from Weasels, which begin to take over the countryside. The story ends with a final battle between the motley crew and the Weasels.

The third story is The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which chronicles the story of schoolmaster Ichabod Crane, who falls in love with a wealthy farmer's daughter in the small town of Sleepy Hollow. However, his love is not exactly welcomed by the town's eligible bachelors, who engage in a vast array of pranks and outright torture schemes to try and dissuade him from his pursuit of the girl. In the end, Crane meets the legendary Headless Horseman and the story takes a captivating and mysterious turn.

Each of these stories has great animation, wonderful characters, and brilliant voice-acting. The characters are cute, the scenes are colorful, and each of the stories is enchanting. One of the best things about the collection is the animation style - it is classic Disney at its finest. The artwork is marvelous, and the voice talents of the actors truly bring the characters to life. This collection is perfect for families with young children who are just starting to learn about the joys of reading and literature. The stories are timeless and will be enjoyed by children of all ages.

Disney Animation Collection: Vol. 5: Wind in the Willows from Disney is a perfect addition to any family's DVD collection, offering hours of enchanting entertainment. It is a must-have for any classic Disney fan, or for anyone who loves a good story. This collection truly embraces the magic of storytelling, with entertaining and heartwarming tales that will leave viewers captivated from start to finish. So, why not set aside an afternoon, grab some snacks, and immerse yourself in the rich and rewarding world of The Wind in the Willows.
