There is a small town, next to the Hudson River, that is called Tarry Town. In town, there is only one school and one schoolmaster. The name of the schoolmaster is Ichabod Crane. He loves to eat, sing, and think about food.
One day, a new pupil joins Ichabod's psalms singing sessions. Her name is Katrina Van Tessel. She is the most beautiful girl in town. She is also rich. Ichabod falls in love with her and wants to marry her, but so does Brom Bones.
Ichabod is invited to the Van Tessel's party, but so is Brom. At the party, they tell ghost stories by the fire.
Let's have a big snack shall' we?
Mommy, I'm hungry!
After the party, Ichabod goes home late and encounters the Headless Horseman. He runs away from it up until the bridge, and when he gets there, the Headless Horseman throws something that has the size of a head.
The next day, Hans Van Ripper doesn't find Ichabod and quickly makes a group of men search for him. They find his hat and a pumpkin next to it. It looked like Ichabod Crane disappeared. Soon after, everyone was sure he was dead.
Some say Ichabod was taken away by the Headless Horseman when he went home after the Van Tessel's party, but a man said he traveled to New York and saw Ichabod. He assured Ichabod married a wealthy girl and had a family, and also became a lawyer.
