  • The story of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman, based on Washington Irving 's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (narrated by Bing Crosby). The gangly and lanky Ichabod Crane was the new schoolmaster in Sleepy Hollow. His somewhat odd behavior made him the ridicule of the rambunctious and robust town bully Brom Bones. Despite his odd appearance, Ichabod quickly proved to be a ladies' man charming all the eligible local ladies. Finally, however, Ichabod discovered the local town beauty, Katrina Van Tassel. Katrina was the beautiful young daughter of Baltus Van Tassel, the wealthiest farmer in the area, and Brom's intended. Katrina was a coquette by nature, but saw Ichabod as an opportunity to break from the monotony of Brom scaring away every other potential suitor. Ichabod had his eye on the Van Tassel wealth, and was infatuated by Katrina's beauty and grace as well. After a number of comically unsuccessful efforts by Brom to dispose of Ichabod, including a scene at the Van Tassel's Halloween party where he tried to switch his short overweight dance partner Tilda with Katrina, the situation changed when Brom decided to take advantage of Ichabod's strong belief in superstitions. Brom musically told the tale of the Headless Horseman to frighten the teacher. That Halloween night, Crane's lonely ride home became exceedingly frightening because of his exposure to the possibility of encountering the ghost. The atmosphere of fear increased in intensity, until it broke the tension at a false alarm, whereupon Ichabod and his horse laughed hysterically in relief. Immediately, the true (?) Headless Horseman appeared, laughing maniacally, riding a large black horse that bore a strong resemblance to the one owned by Brom. Then followed a spectacular chase scene wherein the visually impressive Horseman pursued Ichabod with wild abandon, only to be deterred when Ichabod crossed a bridge near the local Dutch graveyard (the bridge being the point beyond which the horseman couldn't go, according to the tale). The Horseman then hurls his own severed head (shown to actually be a fiery Jack-o-lantern), at Ichabod. The jack-o-lantern is seemingly hurled right at the audience , bursts into flames as it collides, and everything fades to black. The next morning, the only things found by the bridge were a shattered pumpkin and Ichabod's hat. Brom shortly thereafter married Katrina. It was later rumored that Ichabod married a rich, plump widow with many children (who all resemble Ichabod to an amazing degree), in the next county. But the simple, common denizens of Sleepy Hollow firmly denied this; they all knew that Ichabod was spirited away on Halloween Night by the ghoulish Headless Horseman.

ALF portrays the character of Ichabod Crane, and at the beginning of the story he arrives by Twentieth Century Limited Express train in the city of Sleepy Hollow. When he arrives, he heads straight to the Van Tassel Building, home of The Daily Hemisphere, looking for a job as a photographer. He take the elevator straight up to the newsroom, where he meets Hendrick. Hendrick tells him that he is scheduled to meet the publisher Baultus Van Tassel in five minutes. When he enters Van Tassel's office, he meets the gorgeous secretary Katrina, Van Tassel's daughter. Van Tassel immediately hires Ichabod Crane and sends him after the story of the Headless Horseman, who according legend lost his head in war. The three previous photographers disappeared without a trace. Van Tassel sends Ichabod with Brom Bones, who he says will probably marry his daughter. After the meeting, however, Katrina tells Ichabod that she wants to be with him instead (which is overheard by Brom Bones). When Ichabod goes to meet Katrina for a date, he is followed by the Headless Horseman, who carries a jack-o-lantern in his hand. Ichabod gets caught in a dead end alley and the Headless Horsemen warns him to leave by the rising of the full moon the next night or he will die and then throws the jack-o-lantern at him. Back at the office, Katrina is upset that Ichabod stood her up, but invites him to the party at her house. Brom Bones tries to start a fight but Ichabod flees the scene. As the full moon rises, the headless horseman appears, an Ichabod runs away, commandeers a horse, and plays chase with the headless horseman. He then discovers that Brom Bones, Van Tassel, Hendrick, and several others in the party were all posing as the headless horseman for various personal reasons. Ichabod gets fed up with the confessions and takes off with Katrina on his horse. When a much more authentic looking Headless Horseman appears, Ichabod and Katrina ride off at full gallop.
