Triumphant Mr. Toad

Triumphant Mr. Toad depicts that climactic moment when after all sorts of mayhem and misadventure with the weasels, Mr. Toad recovers the deed to Toad Hall. In this giclée print by Toby Bluth, Toad shows the deed to his friends Ratty, Moley, and McBadger.

Giclée is a fine art printing process. The original illustration is scanned, then artists perfect the colors on the scanned image. It's then printed onto paper with a printer that has been specially modified for fine-art reproduction. The size of the unframed Triumphant Mr. Toad is 11" x 14". It is a limited edition of 50 (some reports say 95).

A postcard-style pin (limited edition of 100) is sometimes available on eBay. The Disney Postcard pin collection was a Disney Auctions exclusive, released on January 26, 2004. Twenty-five pins were sold individually for $18, while the remaining 75 were sold in special sets. The pins are hard enamel and are oversized (as far as pins go): about 1-3/4" x 2-1/2".

Toad drives his motorcar recklessly through the corridors of Toad Hall, reminiscent of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride attraction at Disneyland. The postcard-esque greeting says, "I took a wrong turn at...Toad Hall."
