When Professor Ratigan the evil rat (who refuses to be called a rat) send his evil side kick Fidget to kidnap Oliva Flaversham’s dad, who happens to be the best toy maker in London, it is proven that you do not have to be big to solve a big mystery. Olivia goes on the hunt for Basil, the best known mouse detective for help. At first Basil is not interested in helping her until he realizes that her dad has been mousenapped by his arch-nemisis Professor Ratigan. Professor Ratigan has a plan, he wants Hiram to build a robot that will mimic the voice of the queen mouse so he can take over the country. With Basil, Dr. Dawson and Sherlock Homes pet dog Toby, no mystery including this one is to big to be solved!
I was a young kid when this movie first came out, and while I did not remember all the parts to it when it arrived and I sat down with the kids to watch it, as I was watching i sure brought back memories. A great storyline that both children and adults will enjoy, Disney has made it better then what I remember by bringing it to Blu-ray and restoring and digitizing it. All of my favorite Disney movies from when I was a kid are starting to come to blu-ray and I am loving it because I am able to share them with my kids.
Check out this fun clip from the movie.
