This film has long been overshadowed by more recent animated features. OK, it doesn't have the catchy tunes or the flashy graphics of the Little Mermaid or the Lion King, but its still an entertaining movie for people of any age.
The film is set in Victorian London, where mice and rats have their own little society. The toymaker, Mr. Flaversham is kidnapped by a one legged bat, and his daughter, Olivia, sets off to seek the help of Basil of Baker Street, and his two wacky sidekicks.
The Great Mouse detective doesn't follow the usual big-spectacle Disney formula, having only 3 musical numbers, none of which are particularly lavish. The most memorable song is performed by the flamboyant villain (perfectly voiced by Vincent Price) and his goofy henchmen.
This film is nowhere near the top of Disney's achievements, but it's still a strong entry in their massive catalog, and it differs so much from the usual Disney style that it has a quaint sort of charm. All in all, I absolutely love this film, it's definately one of my favourites, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

This was one of my favourite films as a child and still is today. In my opinion it is THE greatest Disney film and does not have the fame it deserves.
From beginning to end this is a delight to watch, mainly thanks to the wonderful Sherlock Holmes based characters and cunning twists in the plot. There is plenty to amuse both the child and the Holmes fan, from the narration of Dr Dawson, the loveableness of Toby, the evil schemes of the Napolean of Crime - Professor Ratigan , and of course the cunning disguises and eccentric genius of Basil himself, not to mention brief cameos from the human forms of Holmes and Watson. For the ardent Holmes fan there are a number of sneaky and less obvious references to the great human detective. The fun, adventure and suspense will please every child and adult alike.
The film was clearly made with lots of care and attention. The animation and characterisation is great and although Victorian England is dark there is enough Disney magic to warm even the hardest of hearts. It's only weakness as a Disney film is the scarceness of songs, although the nature of the film doesn't present many appropriate moments for songs.
The films is perfect for every age group, it is full of adventure, fun and laughter, and the occasional tear. I thoroughly recommend it to absolutely everyone.

Format: DVD
When I was just seven years old I watched this at the pictures. I then got the story & tape, and the sticker album.

Now at the tender age of 27 I watched this again on DVD the other day and I enjoyed it. It is very different to many other Disney films. For a start it is set in Victorian London. It is one of the last Disney Films to have lavish painted backdrops rather than the more cartoony style we see today.

It is set in a sort of parallel world to ours, one of mice. Basil is approached by young Olivia and Dr. Dawson (the Watson to Basil's Holmes) in order to request his help to find her kidknapped dad. Once Basil learns that his arch-nemesis Ratigan is involved with his disappearance he is only too happy to help.

Sherlock Holmes fans will love the nods towards the Conan-Doyle legend - he infact appears in the film (Holmes that is, not Conan-Doyle!)

Barry Ingham is the perfect voice for Basil. He manages to pack in the eccentricity and that quintessential Englishness required for the role. Basil is one of my all-time favourite Disney characters. My absolute all time favourite though is Fidget - the peg-legged bat who happens to be Ratigan's henchman. His crazy jabbering speech always makes me chuckle.

Speaking of voices - Hollywood great Vincent Price voices Ratigan, an inspired choice. Instead of a rasping throaty growl, he has a more charming sophisticated way of speaking which makes him feel more menacing.

There are a few musical numbers in this film, but they aren't particularly great - nothing you'd expect to find on a Disney compilation CD. The plot is quite 2 dimensional, there's no real sub-plots or anything other than the main story.

this film, in my opinion is a massively underappreciated Disney classic and in my opinion, it was this film that started the golden age of Disney rather than little mermaid.

this film has sustained my love for all my life and I never grow tired of it. there are very few faults with this classic but i'll start with them. first, this film is simply too short (although it is sheer perfection while it lasts). 2ndly ratigan (the main villain voiced by Vincent price) has too small a role- in ratigan's villain song he only has about 9 lines- although those lines are great. the film lacks any truly moving moments. there are too few songs.

great mouse detective has a lot of good things to boast about. 1stly the music in this film is first class and was written by world renowned composer henry macini (composer of pink panther's signature tune). the main theme of this film is one of the best of any animated film ever, in my opinion. 2ndly the villain, ratigan is my favourite villain of all time. it was Vincent price's dream to be a Disney villain and this wish was fulfilled not long before he died. ratigan is a villain of class and of great stature, he is a very very intelligent villain and is not actuallu very dissimilar to moriarty. ratigan also has a great physical dominance as he is HUGE but not too huge. the best thing about ratigan is of course, his voice. the script and Vincent price work together incredibly well along with the brilliant movement of ratigan in the animation. 3rdly the lovable characters, in my opinion, there is not a single unlovable character in this film. 4thly the animation, this film has incredible revolutionary animation in its final sequence and it is a delight to watch.
