I simply loved this stop-action animation when PBS broadcast it. I was over 25 then but still I taped the two little films and viewed them repeatedly. I am quite upset that they are not currently available. I gave my tape to relatives years ago. If you have read the books you know that they are made of short, little episodes about the lives of two emotionally committed amphibians, two friends, who find it necessary to confront some of life's serious dilemmmas together. For example, how do you manage to share a basketful of cookies that are simply VERY good; or how do you cope with the loss of a button from a beloved coat. The solutions that these two bright and compassionate characters come up with are surprising and compelling. I have read the book, but as much as I have enjoyed and loved other readings of Arnold Lobel's authorship, it was through the film that Frog and Toad became my friends. Their personalities are so beautifully resolved in this film and the musical parts are actually audible. Delightfully so.
