The Great Mouse Detective is one of my all time favorite Disney Movies. I was so thrilled to discover that it was going to be released on blue ray and DVD this month. It was originally released in 1986 and I can vividly remember going to the movie theater to see it. This lesser known disney film has always been special to me. No, it isn’t your mainstream Disney Princess flick, but an endearing tale of adventure. These lesser known Disney films have such character. I actually prefer them. This Sherlock Holmes and Watson type movie is sure the thrill and captivate your little ones. The movie is set in 1897 London and follows the plight of little Olivia, a Scottish mouse whose father has been kidnapped by a crippled bat. Olivia enlists the help of Basil of Baker Street and the adventure begins. Through many twists and turns you will be captivated by this tale. My 2 boys absolutely loved this cartoon movie. We all sat down to watch it on a rainy fall afternoon with a big bowl of popcorn. Perfection! This would be a fabulous little gift for Halloween.
The 2 disc blue ray/dvd pack retails for $19.96. You can purchase the Great Mouse Detective here on Amazon.
