I'm actually quite surprised Disney put this out considering it involves a headless horsemen but heck I'm glad it happened. This story is very short, about a half an hour but it's enough time to tell this little tale. It's of course about pointed nosed school teacher Ichabod Crane who happens to be in love with a lass named Katrina. He goes to a party at her dad's house, and to push him away from his daughter he tells him the story of "The Headless Horseman". Things go from bad to worse when he's riding home at night and he encounters the ghost for himself! It's a very entertaining way to spend a half an hour, I just wish they'd tried to make it more scary, but for kids this is very decent.
