Blu-ray review: “The Great Mouse Detective: Mystery in the Mist Edition”

Oklahoman Published: November 2, 2012

It turns out that Fidget is the primary henchman for Basil's evil arch-nemesis Professor Ratigan (Vincent Price, who brings a wicked glee to the role), so the detective eagerly takes the case. With the help of Holmes' hound Toby, the trio traces Ratigan's latest sinister scheme from a human toy shop to a seedy waterfront pub to Buckingham Palace. The thrilling climax inside Big Ben marks the first time Disney combined computer-generated images with hand-drawn animation.

That landmark achievement gets just a quick mention in the skimpy eight-minute making-of featurette, one of just three Blu-ray bonus features, all of which have been recycled from the 2010 DVD release. It's just elementary that “The Great Mouse Detective” deserves better.
