Tally Ho! It's Mr. Toad's canary-yellow gypsy cart "rampaging about the countryside" with his horse Cyril. Another of my all-time favorite animated films is Walt Disney's "Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad." (If you haven't yet seen the film - and there's no excuse if you haven't - you probably know of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride at Disneyland.) About 15 years ago I made this simple wooden toy for a friend. At the time, I was disappointed that Disney seldom made cool merchandise based on this film, so I decided to make something myself.
Long-time Disney designer, now a self-employed art director, illustrator, writer, sculptor, and maker of things. Inconveniently enamored with outdated technology, and pretty much every kind of cultural aspect of the American early 1960s. Will pay big bucks to the guy who produces a plausible time machine.
