The Great Mouse Detective

The Great Mouse Detective (also known as The Adventures of the Great Mouse Detective for its 1992 theatrical re-release and Basil the Great Mouse Detective in some countries) is the twenty-sixth animated feature in the Disney animated features canon. It was produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation, and originally released to movie theaters on July 2, 1986 by Walt Disney Pictures and Buena Vista Distribution. The film was directed by Burny Mattinson, David Michener, and the team of John Musker and Ron Clements, who later directed Disney's hit films The Little Mermaid and Aladdin.

Trivia

This film was re-released theatrically on February 14, 1992. It was then released under the Walt Disney Black Diamond Classics video series in the summer of 1992. This video edition is very popular with Great Mouse Detective collectors. It was then re-released to video again in the summer of 1999. Finally in 2002, it was released to DVD. 

Vincent Price declared that Professor Ratigan was his favorite role. 

There's a reference to Sherlock Holmes book "The Final Problem" when Professor Ratigan and Basil fall from the top of the Big Ben, when this one stroke 10 o'clock, and only Basil is able to get back up to the balloon, similar to what it happens when Holmes and Moriarty when they fall out of Reichenbach Falls... only Holmes survived. 

The film's tagline was "All new! All FUN!" It is thought that Disney was careful to emphasize the "fun" aspect of the film in order to distance it from the distastrous Black Cauldron, which is thought to have failed due to its dark atmosphere. Most of the advertising used bright colors and depicted light scenes. This is ironic as the majority of the film takes place at night. 

The Great Mouse Detective is the first Disney animated film to have it's villain die without uncertainty (as in obviously dead, but not in a dark manner), a custom which would eventually become somewhat routine in later Disney years (of the next 10 Disney animated movies made after this movie, only one (arguably two, as Hades was a god) featured a villain who lived through the movie).
According to the list of Disney Television Series on Wikipedia , there is a Great Mouse Detective television series on the list . It is unknown if it will ever air
