I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since it is available on Disney+, I thought I might as well check it out again. If I'm not mistaken, I saw this one when I was a kid and when it came out in the theaters. I think I really enjoyed it back then but, honestly, Disney wasn't doing very well at the time and the movies they released in the 80's were not very well received in gen... read more

If there’s one Disney film in the entire canon that I’m incredibly familiar with, it’s The Great Mouse Detective. I can’t even imagine how many times I’ve watched this film throughout my life. Without a doubt, this is my undisputed favorite Disney film. I admit, it’s an odd choice. It’s not a film from one of the cherished areas, but there’s something about its lower key that just ... read more

" The first Disney animated feature to make extensive use of computer technology, The Great Mouse Detective was based on the children's novel Basil of Baker Street by Eve Titus. The titular hero is Basil, a Holmes-like rodent (complete with deerstalker) who solves crimes in the company of his friend and chronicler Dr. Dawson. Basil and Dawson are retained by the daughter of a mouse toymaker who has been kidnapped by the diabolical Ratigan. The villain hopes to force the toymaker to constru"

My Top 20 Favourite Disney Animated Features (20 movies items)

"This might not be high on anyone else's list, but it's easily one of my personal favourites. The idea of Disney doing a detective story, especially with mice, may sound absurd, but somehow it actually worked! :-) I just love watching the sharp, super-smart hero cracking clues and figuring out various other things. But a hero can only be as good as his villain, and Ratigan truly is one of the greats. Basil is obviously a rodent version of Sherlock Holmes, and this is a great Sherlock Holmes alter"

Kyle Ellis posted a review 1 year, 10 months ago

“This movie is an absolute delight from start to finish. My only complaint was that sometimes the animation was a little crude, making a few scenes upsetting to watch, like the kidnapping scene and when Felicia the cat eats the mouse. But a vast majority of the animation was wonderful. The three songs were absolutely wonderful, especially Criminal Mind, and I loved it that Vincent Price sang in the film. How unusual! The characters were also a delight, especially Ratigan,(truly Machiavellian) with a perfect performance from the master of horror, Vincent Price, no wonder it is considered as his favourite role because he seemed to be having a wonderful time with it. The highlight of the film was the scene in Big Ben, brilliant animation in that scene. Basil and Dawson had wonderful chemistry,” read more
