Badger, Ratty, and Mole live by a serene riverbank where everyone lives in harmony, but one day, their peaceful existence is brought to an end, when their mischievous friend, Mr. Toad, develops a bad case of motormania.
Rampaging through the countryside with an untameable joie de vivre, Toad does not care about anything but the need for speed, and causing havoc for everyone around. But it isn't long until this reckless attitude lands him in trouble with the law and a criminal band of weasels. Badger, Ratty, and Mole must do all they can to rid their friend of his obsession before it becomes too late.
