McFarlane and Burton "Sleepy Hollow" Signing

Autograph and Chat Session at FAO Schwarz in Manhattan

Nov. 16, 1999

World-renowned filmmaker Tim Burton and Emmy award-winning producer Todd McFarlane, founder of McFarlane Toys, will be at FAO Schwarz in Manhattan on Friday, Nov. 19 for a special product signing and online chat for the new Paramount Pictures’ release Sleepy Hollow, which opens nationwide that day. The online chat will run from 8:30 to 9 PM, followed by a signing from 9 to 11 PM.

    Burton and McFarlane will sign purchases of McFarlane Toys’ new line of highly detailed and accessorized Sleepy Hollow action figures. The line includes classic Sleepy Hollow characters Ichabod Crane, the first figure ever created in the likeness of Johnny Depp; The Crone; and the Headless Horseman.

    In Sleepy Hollow, Depp stars as Ichabod Crane, an eccentric and earnest constable with an avant-garde approach to solving crime. Ichabod’s contemporary investigative ways are put to the test when his superiors send him to the small village of Sleepy Hollow to probe a string of murders, allegedly committed by a headless horseman.

    Sleepy Hollow action figures will also be available for purchase online at FAO’s Web site,
