Classic Cartoon

Just finished watching The Great Mouse Detective on the Disney Channel. I love this charming animated movie about Sherlock Holmes ala Mickey- Basil of Baker Street and how he first meets his trusted companion and assistant Dr. Dawson and tackles a case involving his nemesis, Dr. Ratigan (voiced by Vincent Price). The character of Basil is pretty cool and the film's funny and action-packed. It's too bad that it isn't one of the more popular Disney features... there never was any sequel or continuation of Basil's adventures. But who knows? Maybe someday Disney will open up the trunk and reopen more of the Mouse Detective's cases.
