In terms of Disney, a lot of people would say that The Little Mermaid was the film that got Disney back to its Golden Age days with its beautiful animation, songs, and characters. But I don't think I have ever heard anyone acknowledge this film at all. This particular more darker (Not as dark as The Black Cauldron though), mysterious, and overall more action-packed film is what I believe brought back Disney from their financial failures. I remember loving The Great Mouse Detective as a kid, and I still can definitely appreciate it to this day (Even if it can't compete with films like Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, etc.) Excellent Animation, Compelling Characters (Basil and Ratigan are the best of the bunch), An awesome score, and a climax that may rank as one of the best in Disney history! Recommended for all ages and all Disney Fans who haven't picked this one up yet.
