[Idea] The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - Disney Mini Classics HD Restoration
#1
When I was young it was a Halloween tradition in my house to watch Disney's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". The specific release we had was the Disney Mini Classic series. This had some minor changes from the full "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad" including a unique opening credits, the Disney Mini Classics opening logo, and a Halloween themed Disney promo at the end. I also remembered the opening narration being slightly different, but I can't find a full rip to verify this. 
Here's a video with the opening credits and closing promo (not very great quality): Opening & Closing To The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow 1990 VHS

Currently the only source I have is the blu-ray release of The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad, which I plan to take most of the video from. Sources I still need are:
  • Full VHS rip of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" Disney Mini Classic
  • LD audio of The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad Have this now thanks to bronan
  • Possible LD video/audio of the Disney Mini Classics opening logo, can't confirm if any of the LD releases has this.

If anyone could help me obtain any of the above needed sources I would greatly appreciate it. I might get a cheap capture card and try and do my own VHS capture (assuming my parents still have the VHS) but my VCR is a pretty low-end model so I'd rather use a better rip then what I could do.

The LD is on my list to get, but maybe someone around here already has it? According to LDDB it has a digital mono track.

I ordered the LD with some other stuff, I will cap video and audio when I get it.

Thanks to bronan I have the LD capture. The audio is an upgrade over the BD (the music on the BD mono is mixed noticeably higher then the dialogue/effects compared to the LD). It also has the nicest quality I've seen of the old Disney home video logo, though it's obviously missing the mini-classics logo.

Update:
I have secured a couple VHS copies of this. I'm gonna borrow an elgato from someone and capture them, then experiment with various methods of up-scaling.
My goal for this has changed slightly. In the end I hope to have a 1-to-1 copy of the VHS version using higher quality footage whenever possible, hopefully in a BD-25 format if I can figure out how to do that.

Another update:
I pulled my VCR out of storage and it just ate one of the tapes. Tried taking the top off to take a look and didn't see any obvious issues with it, though I'm no expert in repairing one of these. I guess this will have to go on hold again until I can get it fixed/replaced. Sad

I got a new VCR from a thrift shop (a Sony SLV-760HF), hoping to borrow the capture card again and get back to working on this
