Caught in a Maze is an episode of The Wind in the Willows. It first aired on January 29, 1987 and repeated on October 29, 1987.

Toad goes to London and visits the palace at Hampton Court and sees the famous maze. On his return he decides to restore his father's maze in the grounds of Toad Hall. He challenges Badger, Mole and Rat to a race around the maze with a prize of a bottle of his finest champagne. Toad feels that he is sure he will win because he plans to cheat using some string to mark his path. Unfortunately, Mole encounters the string and thinks it will prove jolly useful, and picks it up resulting in Toad being lost in the maze.
