  • [Fun] Can you find Mr. toad in the parks?

    Now I have been searching and i have yet to find him. Some say there is no costumed character for Mr.toad i say "HogWash" there is a Mr. toad. If anyone has reports of seeing him or pictures please post here.

      Hmm thought so but I mean it has to be possible tons of characters that must people have never heard of have been spotted in the parks. Mr.toad has a ride and movie (used to have a rid in WDW). Maybe back in the days at Disneyland when walt was alive or when the park just opened he was there since Mr.toad's Wild Ride was one of the few rides there you would think Mr.toad would be there.

        Hmmmm first off Mr Toad never had his own movie... it was a short story released with another short story as a "package" film. Secondly it really wasn't that good to begin with, same with the ride. Actually characters in the park when Walt was around wasn't all that common either, especially in real early years (and they were scary beyond belief when they were seen, as I imagine a giant Toad would be). The only place you are going to find Toadie now is in the Pet Cemetary outside the HM, where he belongs. Face it the ride is never going to be put back at WDW, and I don't believe there was ever a meet and greet costume even made for him for either park!

          Nope... there's never been a Mr Toad walkaround character.

          The Only Mr Toad you'll find in the MK is a pic of him handing the deed to Toad Hall to Owl in the Pooh bear ride. Or one of those vintage Mr Toad shirts they were selling earlier this year if any are left.

            There is also a Mr. Toad statue in the Haunted Mansion pet cemetery.

              Actually, it's a great short feature. Great story, great animation, great songs, and great voices. Maybe you should watch it again.

                I'm not a huge fan of the film, but I wish the ride was still around. I always make sure to ride it at Disneyland. It is definitely an old ride, though.

                Also I haven't taken a good look at the Haunted Mansion pet cemetary, so I've never seen the Mr. Toad. Anything else worth looking at there? Also is it the same statue in the queue area in DL?

                  -Winnie the Pooh Ride (Owl's House)
                  -Haunted Mansion (Pet Cemetary)
                  -On a Mr.Toad Wild Ride t-shirt that is currently being sold at MK gift shops

                    I just checked out that shirt design. If they still have it at the end of this month, I'm "toadally" getting one.

                    Sorry, I couldn't resist. :shy:

                      My mom was going to get me the Toad shirt when she went to MK for her birthday back in February, but they didn't have any in my size.

                      She did get me the retro Dreamfinder/Figment shirt at EPCOT though as they had those in my size.

                            Also a giant toad would be quite scary.

                                I have a pic but not sure how to upload it. It's blue it's located in Fantasy Faire right by the other It has Mr. Toad's car and the ride name and Mr. Toad by the car but Mr. toad looks more like he is depicted in the book.

                                  Well, as quoted by other people. there is a Mr Toad Live-Action Movie(The title I believe is called "The Wind And The Willows" it follows more closely to the book.)

                                      Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                                      And I can tell you 'bout today
                                      And how I picked you up and everything changed
                                      It was pain
                                      Sunny days and rain
                                      I knew you'd feel the same things...
