Overview

The Great Mouse Detective

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 construct a fake version of the queen who will grant power to the bad guy--or at least, for that part of the world behind the walls of London. Though nearly eliminated by Ratigan, Basil and Dawson trap the villain in the fast-moving mechanisms of Big Ben. By relying on computer animation, Disney was able to keep the budget of Great Mouse Detective down to a manageable size, thus earning back the losses incurred by the studio's previous cartoon feature, The Black Cauldron. Among the talented voice actors utilized in The Great Mouse Detective is Vincent Price, who plays guess what part? (Hint: he ain't Basil).

I saw this film for the first time in the theaters with my father when I was about five years old, and I am as entranced watching it now at twenty-seven as I was then. This movie is what used to have us lining up for Disney back when we were kids- a film with lovable characters, a solid and engrossing plot, and most importantly a great story that the audience cannot help but be drawn into. It is, without a doubt, a much-unappreciated Disney great.

I loved this movie when I was younger and I still love it. In my opinion it is the best Disney movie. It was funny and entertaining and had the one of the best songs from a Disney movie ever. I still watch this movie now with my cousins.

16-years-old and I still laugh at Basil's 'Whatever.' to Olivia's last name.I thought he was so cute when I was little,I actually had a crush on him. Sad,I know. Ah,nothing can beat them old Disney classics,before they started making them 'politically correct.'The old ones are hilarious,for some reason. Definatly buy this movie,it's downright funny and because today's my (duh!) 16th birthday.XD
