The Great Mouse Detective on Blu Ray

Stuff your little ones stocking with the adventures of Basil of Baker Street and Dawson, his sidekick, as they try to solve a crime that sees the kidnapping of London’s top toy maker.  Vince Price adds his voice as these London mice as they aim to out sleuth their archememy, Ratigan – who wants to be a mouse and not a rat – and bring the toy maker home.

Though you may not know this title as well as some other Disney classics, it is a beautifully illustrated and animated movie.  The music is in true Disney creativity and style and my girls really love the story.

Check out the clip below:

Bonus features include ‘So You Think You Can Sleuth” and the making of the movie as well.  I love these behind the scenes look at how classic movies are created.  It makes me want to rush right out and buy an animator’s kit.  Well, not really, but it is a great bonus for the parents watching with their kids!

Be sure to pick up your copy of The Great Mouse Detective and surprise your little one on Christmas Day!
