The Great Mouse Detective
If you like your mysteries a bit on the lighter side, it’s hard to beat Disney. This 1986 movie isn’t the House of Mouse’s best, but it is the first to combine computer and hand-drawn animation into one feature—one that should be pretty entertaining for its intended audience. Based on the book Basil of Baker Street, two crime-fighting critters go in search of the kidnapped toymaker. Those two main characters are a bit like Sherlock Holmes and Watson. Well, if that classic duo were a couple of mice, of course.
Besides the voices of Vincent Price and real-life Sherlock Basil Rathbone, this film includes a 1.78:1 image, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, and a standard-def DVD of the movie. Other extras include a quick sing-along song, a making-of short and the featurette “So You Think You Can Sleuth?”
