If you know me, you know I love Disney animated films. But really, who doesn’t??? But, you also know I’m an 80’s pop-culture and Sherlock Holmes fanatic. So when The Great Mouse Detective Blu-ray’s came across my desk today, my head almost exploded.
In Victorian London, England, a little mouse girl’s toymaker father is abducted by a peglegged bat. She enlists the aid of Basil of Baker Street, the rodent world’s answer to Sherlock Holmes. The case expands as Basil uncovers the crime’s link to a plot against the Crown itself. -IMDb Synopsis
Mouse Detective is a pop-culture gem, a film that pretty much revitalized the Disney animation department, leading to the blockbuster, The Little Mermaid, and a full-on company renaissance three years later. It received high marks from critics, but was later overshadowed by that other mouse Fievel, in An American Tail, also released in ’86.
The Great Mouse Detective Mystery in the Mist edition comes to Blu-ray and DVD on October 9, 2012.
Disney is allowing Film Obsession to give away Mouse Detective on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack to 3 of our lucky fans!
