Check out the full text of the story and then let us know how we did.
We know you were just dying to smell like Ichabod. Who doesn't want to smell like they just peed their pants? You're welcome.
Sleepy Hollow is a real place. Right next to Tarrytown, in fact. Nope, we're not making this up. Monsters in the closet are the least of the worries of kids there.
While you're there, check out the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. That's not creepy or anything.
Movie or TV Productions
Just because Johnny Depp is in it doesn't make it the best "Sleepy Hollow" movie, you know. Also, that guy is way too much of a stud to play Ichabod. We're just sayin'.
Lucky thirteen. According to IMDb, that's the number of movies that have been based on "Sleepy Hollow." If you wanted proof that this is a popular story, you got it.
Time stands still in "Sleepy Hollow," or so Irving says. Is everything the way that he left it? Check out Irving's report.
You can still visit Washington Irving's home, Sunnyside. Say hi to the Headless Horseman for us.
Take a tour of Sleepy Hollow with National Geographic. And try not to lose your heads.
Old-school Disney takes on the tale. They definitely got the funny-looking part right.
Check out this one-act opera based on the story. Ichabod probably wishes he could have had a starring role.
Not Tim Burton's greatest moment, but the story is just so good it doesn't really matter.
It's not quite the same as sitting with Dutch grandmas around a fire, but this audio recording of the story will just have to do.
Washington Irving looks more like a Brom than an Ichabod to us.
If you want to catch a glimpse of the Headless Horseman, you can head down to the Old Dutch Church in Sleepy Hollow. We'll wait here.
Check out where Washington Irving lived back in the day. Looks like a nice place, but can it compare to Baltus's farm?
Is there anything creepier than Ichabod rendered in 3D?
Johnny Depp doesn't quite match Irving's description of Ichabod Crane. Oh well, we're not complaining.
Now that's how we pictured Ichabod. Thanks, Disney.
