wI think this article could be very good. I'm willing to make it my project, does anyone have any suggestions?--Counter-revolutionary 13:01, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Doesn't this bit need clarification?[edit]

"For many years there was a ride at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom called Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. The ride was closed on September 7, 1998. The ride at Disneyland was re-dedicated on May 23, 1983." (my italics)

What ride at Disneyland? Is it a different ride? When did it start and under what names? Etc., etc.

Horatio Bottomley an inspiration?[edit]

I recall reading a review (in 1983) in the Sunday Express of a new biography of Grahame. It mentioned that Mr Toad was based (I cannot recall how qualified the statement was) on "the fraudulent M.P. Horatio Bottomley", but did not expand on what way Bottomley was like the character. I do not have the biography, but someone with access to it could check this up.Cloptonson (talk) 06:28, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
