The Great Mouse Detective holds a very special place in my heart. Disney originally released the movie back in 1986, the year my beautiful son Sid was born. It was one of the first Disney movies that I got to enjoy with my young son and has always been a favorite of ours. Fast forward to 2012 and I now get to have fun watching The Great Mouse Detective with my little niece and nephew, with the new release of Disney The Great Mouse Detective Mystery in the Mist Edition Blu-ray DVD Combo.
Set in England and based on the children’s book series Basil of Baker Street by Eve Titus, The Great Mouse Detective has a lot of mystery and suspense that will keep kids enthralled. Myself a huge fan of the old 1950’s British series Sherlock Holmes, absolutely love the Disney twist on the Sherlock series. Basil of Baker Street proves you don’t have to be big to solve big cases.
When the diabolical Professor Ratigan kidnaps London’s master toymaker, the brilliant master of disguise Basil of Baker Street and his trusted sidekick Dawson try to elude the ultimate trap and foil the perfect crime.
This family classic on Disney Blu-Ray proves big heroes come in small packages.

This is a classic I remember from when I was younger. It’s great to have it on bluray now!
I have never seen this movie, but I should really add that to our Queue for movie night. I love Sherlock Holmes and looks like a fun way to introduce that to kids.

We own this movie, but I have never seen it! I am unsure if the kids have even watched it. Maybe that will be a great Friday Night movie!
I love this movie! It was a childhood favorite.
