Mousterpiece Cinema, Episode 102: ‘The Great Mouse Detective’


Before Robert Downey, Jr. donned the cap and pipe, before Benedict Cumberbatch deduced in the modern world, there was another revival of Sherlock Holmes back in the 1980s. And yes, it was a Disney movie. Sure, the lead characters were…mice, and sure, they weren’t…called Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. But no matter! This week on Mousterpiece Cinema, Josh and Gabe take a look at The Great Mouse Detective, one of Disney’s last animated features before the vaunted Renaissance period kicked in. They’re joined by Doug Tilley of to discuss the majesty of Vincent Price, the old-school bumbling nature of Watson (or, as he’s known here, Dr. Dawson), Basil of Baker Street, and erotic fan fiction. (No joke! And if you’re listening with kids, be warned: we do discuss said fan fiction in a bit of PG-13 detail around 40 minutes in.)
