Review: The Great Mouse Detective is one of those frequently overlooked Disney classics.  It never really got the huge positive attention that many of the princess-oriented Disney films recieved, and yet it was a fantastic film.  It featured mice, which is a different formula for Disney, and it really gave kids an adventure that crossed all gender boundries and entertained everyone.

The Great Mouse Detective has been overshadowed by films like the Little Mermaid and Oliver and Company for many years.  In fact, I find people all the time that haven't even seen it.  Hopefully this new DVD release will enable many kids to experience this great film for the first time.   Its basically a Sherlock Holmes tale translated into mice and its so much fun.

This new Mystery in the Mist Edition of the DVD features an all-new restoration that looks fantastic.  It also gives kids some games to play, which I don't personally care about, but my kids go crazy over.  This is a great way to own this Disney classic film.
