    Mr. Toad is a dirty sinner.

    Quick question... does anybody have any background info on the narrative for the Mr. Toad darkride? I always wondered why you go to Hell at the end of that ride, so I went out the other day and rented The Wind in the Willows, and now I'm even more confused: How come when I get on that ride my soul is damned and I'm tormented by pot-bellied demons for all eternity, but in the film Toad gets to soar around in an airplane piloted by a horse? Wha?!? Mah?!? Where's my horse plane ride?!? Anyhow... does anybody know the history of that ride, and why the Imagineers took that particular route? Thanks... :devil:

    I have always thought the Uncle Walt used the fantasyland dark rides to teach young children his own strict brand of morality.

    Mr. Toad- drive to fast, end up in hell
    Pinnocchio- have too much fun, turn into a donkey
    Snow White- too ugly and mean- get pitched off a cliff
    Peter Pan- call people names, get eaten by crocodile

    Just MHO

    Nice DQ
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    Agreed, DQ.

    Also, in the Wind and the Willows, if I remember correctly, did not Mr. Toad steal the car?

    PS: I guess I have to point out that Pinochio didn't arrive in Fantasyland until the 80's.

    Uhhhh... No...

    Mr. Toad's Automobile Chase is what it is... Sort of smashing bits and pieces of the story into a narrative of sorts... You have the Auto chase sequence, and the trial sequence... but I think the end is if you don't listen to the law you end up in hell...

    Pinnocchio was not one of Walt's orginal dark rides if, I recall... It was added durring the Fantasyland Makeover...

    Peter Pan always called Hook a codfish... You don't see him eaten by a croc... No, the hidden message is, if you spend your life trying to kill youth, time (tick tock) will end up catching up with you and you end up dead... And in this case desert... Yumm... Piratey goodness...

    Snow White is Snow White... What can I say...

    Actually, the weasels stole the car and then traded it with Mr. Toad for his mansion and the police found Mr. Toad in the car. So he was framed!

    What does sin have to do with Hell?

    I thought the only unforgivable sins were suicide and doubt that Jesus was the one true savior.
