I remember watching The Great Mouse Detective on loop when my niece was growing up and for some reason (maybe I was blocking it?) I completely forgot about this title until I received the email that it was being released as a 2-Disc Blu-ray Pack on October 2nd.
The Great Mouse Detective is a mouse version of Sherlock Holmes and when the diabolical Professor Ratigan (voiced by Vincent Prince) kidnaps London’s master toymaker, the brilliant Basil of Baker Street (voiced by Barrie Ingham) and his trusted sidekick Dawson (voiced by Val Bettin) try to elude the ultimate trap and foil the perfect crime. This family classic proves big heroes come in small packages.
My kiddos fell in love with this film instantly. As a word of caution though, the opening sequence can be intense for some kids. There are also a few scary scenes throughout the film, so I would suggest watching it first and then determining if your kiddos can handle it.
The Great Mouse Detective is a fun family movie though. Here is one of my favorite scenes:
