Whatever happened to this atmospheric animated special? Back in the early 1970s, it was a television tradition to run this between Halloween and Thanksgiving. Briefly available on home video from MGM years ago, it seems all but forgotten today. Artwork using autumn colors told the tales of the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle. Like the Chuck Jones production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL from around the same time, this showed animation's potential at being more than just routine kiddie fare. (And, unlike many current cartoons, it was not a 30 minute commercial for some name brand toy disguised as a special.) And look at some of the names in the cast list. This really deserves a revival, if not on TV then certainly on VHS or DVD.
