Badger's Remedy is an Episode of The Wind in the Willows. It first aired on February 12, 1987 and repeated on November 12, 1987.

Badger and Rat are busy organising the Harvest Festival and Mole is unaccountably absent. A concerned Rat calls round to find him seriously ill in bed. Badger suspects mushroom poisoning and organises a search for ingredients to make up an antidote, enlisting the help of riverbankers and weasels alike. One elusive but vital ingredient (a Lycoperdon echinatum fungus) is causing them the most worry, and with time running out for Mole, they just need to look in the right place…
