    Re: Mr. Toad's Wild Ride: What the Hell?

    Funny story:

    Last trip I was there, we decided to go on Toad and when we entered the Infreno my buddy said, 'WHAT THE HELL! Why'd It get sO Hot!?!'

    I responded with, ''Cause we're in hell.' And he responded, 'Oh. That makes sense.'

    I believe I heard that it was not meant to be the story itself, but as if you had the motor-mania and going crazy dream like that. So basically, it's all in your- or his- head. May not be true, but that's how I know it.

    Re: Mr. Toad's Wild Ride: What the Hell?

    The film adaptation departed significantly from the Kenneth Grahame novel since Toad is guilty of stealing the motorcar in the latter and is only framed of the crime in the former. That creative decision Walt Disney made has been criticized as a bastardization by certain academics, but I've always believed that the featurette retains the spirit of the source material, which is mostly a philosophical treatise and is almost incidentally a work of fiction.

    The Disneyland interpretation of the chapters describing the exploits of Toad, Ratty, and Mole is, in a way, more in keeping with the novel since the eccentric amphibian is confronted with the vision of his own demise after the train hits him (and us). But, this Hellish nightmare or hallucination is really only that, as is evidenced by the barrister who reappears in the imagined afterlife as a demon to render judgment on our car.
