Toad, Photographer is an Episode of The Wind in the Willows. It first aired on January 7, 1986 and repeated on July 9, 1987.

Toad decides that he must have a portrait on the wall in his home, alongside his ancestors, and not being convinced by the merits of painting, he stars another craze by sending for some expensive camera equipment. Having contemptuously disregarded the introductory manual “For Novices”, he sets out to practise what he believes to be a natural ability for photography. Needless to say, the results are not quite what he expects.
