But where, we can't recall

We're merrily, merrily, merrily,

merrily, merrily on our way

And we may be going to Devonshire,

to Lancashire, to Worcestershire

We're not so sure,

but what do we care?

We're only sure we've

got to be there

We're merrily on our

way to nowhere at all

Hello, you fellows!

You're the very animals

I was coming to see!

Come along! Hop up!

We'll go for a jolly ride!

The open road, the dusty

highway. Come!

I'll show you the world.

Travel, change, excitement...

How stupid of me! I want you fellows

to meet my noble steed Cyril.

Aye, that's me.

A bit of a trotter,

a bit of a rotter.

How do you do, how do

you do, how do you do?

How do you do?

Say, guv'nor, your friends

seem a bit on the stuffy side.

Toad, we want to have

a talk with you.

A visit! Splendid!

This is serious. You must

give up that horse and cart.

Give up my... But my dear

Ratty, this is my career!

- You can't mean...

- I do!

- You must stop this foolishness!

- No.

- You must!

- No. I won't do it.

Your reckless behaviour is

giving animals a bad name!

You're becoming a

menace to society.

At least think of poor MacBadger!

And as for that horse, no good

will come of gadding about

with such a fast and

irresponsible beast!

- Get him, Mole!

- Come down, Toady.

Stop it! Let me go!

Giddy up, Cyril! Giddy up!

It's no use. You'll never

get me to give this up!

Tally-ho! Yikes!

Look!

Gad! What is it?

- Lummy, guv'nor, it's a motorcar.

- Motorcar?

A motorcar... Gad! What

have I been missing?

- Ratty, it isn't... He hasn't...

- It is, and he has.

A new mania. Motor mania.

Mania.

That's it. That's what it was.

A positive mania.

No telling where it would end.

Might linger for months.

And with Toad Hall at stake,

Rat and Mole had no choice.

Washington Irving

Washington Irving (April 3, 1783 – November 28, 1859) was an American short story writer, essayist, biographer, historian, and diplomat of the early 19th century. He is best known for his short stories "Rip Van Winkle" (1819) and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (1820), both of which appear in his collection, The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. His historical works include biographies of Oliver Goldsmith, Muhammad, and George Washington, as well as several histories of 15th-century Spain dealing with subjects such as Alhambra, Christopher Columbus, and the Moors. Irving served as the U.S. ambassador to Spain from 1842 to 1846. He made his literary debut in 1802 with a series of observational letters to the Morning Chronicle, written under the pseudonym Jonathan Oldstyle. After moving to England for the family business in 1815, he achieved international fame with the publication of The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent., serialized from 1819–20. He continued to publish regularly—and almost always successfully—throughout his life, and just eight months before his death (at age 76, in Tarrytown, New York), completed a five-volume biography of George Washington. Irving, along with James Fenimore Cooper, was among the first American writers to earn acclaim in Europe, and Irving encouraged American authors such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Herman Melville, and Edgar Allan Poe. Irving was also admired by some European writers, including Lord Byron, Thomas Campbell, Charles Dickens, Francis Jeffrey, and Walter Scott. Also, as the United States' first internationally best-selling author, Irving advocated for writing as a legitimate profession and argued for stronger laws to protect American writers from copyright infringement. more…
