The Backside of Vinyls - Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

Today on the Backside of Vinyls, I'm looking at Mr. Toad's Wild Ride from the Walt Disney World Annual Passholder series. This attraction closed in 1998 so newer Disney fans might not recall or may never have experienced Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. But the back of this vinyl includes a couple of neat nods to this extinct attraction.

The back of this figure is of course the back of Mr. Toad for the most part. But in the back of the ears we have the wheels from the ride vehicle:

Then on the back of Mr. Toad's head, we see a devil holding a pitchfork from the memorable Hell scene at the very end of the attraction:

These small touches make this Vinylmation so much more than just Mr. Toad, these details really make this figure reflective of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride at the Magic Kingdom, and a reminder for big fans of the former attraction.
