This reminds me of a time before my life was blighted by the unrelenting ravages of the modern world. It is so peaceful and serene in parts, you entirely forget all your worries.
It's so delightfully English; I think the word it quintessential. Badger is the ultimate sullen good guy, while the Weasels are old school East-end villains. The animation is so unique, I have never seen anything like elsewhere. Dolls house miniatures are used for picnic baskets, tables, cups and even the toast. The whole think reeks of a bygone age and an innocence that won't be found again (and probably didn't actually exist).
If you watched this as a child, you'll like it even more now...if you, like me have a soft side for nostalgia, you'll love it. However, more than anything it's quaint, and if you don’t like quaint, you wont like Wind in the Willows.
