When this film was originally released its title was "The Great Mouse Detective." When Disney re-released it years later they gave it the title of "The Adventures of the Great Mouse Detective." When the film was released on video a few months later, the title on the box was back to "The Great Mouse Detective" but the title on the film itself read "The Adventures of the Great Mouse Detective."

Basil is seen smoking a cigarette in the seedy bar. Ratigan is seen smoking a cigarette using a cigarette holder. The film is sent in June of 1897. Although cigarettes were around in 1897 they were expensive and all hand rolled then, usually in either Egypt or Turkey. They would've been too expensive for low life criminals back then. Pipes and cigars were more common among the populace then. It wasn't until the 20th Century and the invention of automated cigarette-making machines that cigarettes became more popular. See more »
You can do what you want with me. I won't be a part of this-this... this evil any longer!
Oh, very well, if that is your decision.
[pulls out Olivia's toy ballerina and winds it up]
Oh, by the way, I'm taking the liberty of having your daughter brought here.
Yes. I would spend many a sleepless night if anything unfortunate were to befall her.
You... Y-You wouldn't!
[Ratigan crushes the ballerina in his hand and looks forlornly at it, then at Flaversham]
Finish it, Flaversham!

The Great Mouse Detective is one of my favorite Disney films of all time, it's also one of the most under rated in my opinion. I think just because I love the story so much and it always brought up good memories, this was the funniest Disney animated movie I had seen at the time. It's just such a cute film, it has fun animation, catchy songs, and such a touching story that anyone could easily fall in love with. My parents and I watched this movie together all the time when I was a child, still to this day, I don't mind sitting down to watch it, it's just that much fun.
A young little mouse girl and her toy shop father are celebrating her birthday, but her father is quickly taken away by a rotten gang of mice who are led by a giant rat, Ratigan, who is planning to over throw the queen and become leader of the mouse world. Olivia, the daughter, goes to Basil of Baker Street, he's a mad detective who has been chasing Ratigan for a long time. Along with the help of an average mouse, Dr. Dawson, Olivia, and Basil go after Ratigan to make sure that his plan fails.
The Great Mouse Detective is such a cute film. I'm very sure that you'll enjoy it, it's one of my personal favorites, I really do think this is one of the better Disney films and is an under rated treasure. I just loved Basil, his madness was just so funny and enjoyable to watch. I also loved Ratigan's song of why he is so great, not to mention how he thinks he's a mouse is just priceless. This is a fun family film to watch, I highly recommend it.
