    Poop! Poop! - It's Toad!

    The Wind in the Willows -
Seasonal DVD Giveaway!

Ah, the riverbank. What a splendid place to be as Summer blooms.
    And what better company could you have than our friends Ratty, Mole,
    Badger and that indefatigable rogue, Mr Toad?

    The folks at Fremantle Home Entertainment are currently re-releasing
    Cosgrove Hall's classic seasonal adventures as nifty new "Carry-me"
    DVD editions. "Wind in the Willows: Spring Follies" was released back in
    March (RRP £4.99), and "Wind in the Willows: Summer Escapades" is
    due on May 28th (again, RRP £4.99).

    Okay, so the new cases are for kids, but that series... well... that's
    something we can all appreciate in any format... Which means you
    won't want to let this fine giveaway pass you by, because Fremantle

    Carry me away...

    Does this series really need an introduction here at Toonhound?
    Beautifully observed and meticulous in every way, Cosgrove Hall's
    80s stop-motion production took Kenneth Grahame's classic characters
    off the page and away into an expanded series of tales that have come
    to be cherished by animation fans around the world. To many, this is the
    definitive adaptation. No one else has caught the magic and melancholy,
    the joie de vivre and that all-round Edwardian cosiness in quite the
    same way... Sit back... Relax... And drift away downstream with
    Ratty, Mole, Badger and Mr Toad...
