Mole is a character and friend of Water Rat, Angus MacBadger and J. Thaddeus Toad from The Wind in the Willows, the first half of the 1949 Disney animated feature film The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad.
Mole and Ratty play the role as the Alms collectors, asking Scrooge for donations for the poor.
Mole appeared in both versions of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. At Disneyland, the cars nearly crash into him as he's eating at a table. In the now-closed Magic Kingdom version, a simple animated figure of Mole would tip his hat to the riders at the beginning of the attraction.
When the Magic Kingdom's version was replaced with The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, a painting with him and Pooh was placed on the floor inside Owl's house as a tribute to the previous attraction, in addition the more well-known Toad and Owl picture.
