A 1986 Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon masterpiece (Number 26) with no MedievalEuropeanFantasy setting, no TrueLovesKiss, and no [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses princesses]] (although there ''is'' a [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed mouse version]] of UsefulNotes/QueenVictoria...) More importantly, the reasonable success of this film after ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'' debacle was able to convince the new senior management of Walt Disney Pictures that their animation department had a future after all.

** The first meeting between Basil and Dawnson reflects the first meeting between Holmes and Watson in "AStudyInScarlet". In both cases Holmes/Basil calls his future partner a "Doctor" and explain how he deduced he was a Doctor and that he just came back from Afganistan.

** Right at the beginning when Basil correctly deduces Dawson's practice and that he'd been in Afghanistan for the past few years via the Lambert stitch speech from AStudyInScarlett.

Added DiffLines:

* NoKillLikeOverkill: Ratigan's intent with the DeathTrap he's constructed for Basil. Unable to decide which method to eliminate Basil with, he simply uses all of them: Snap his neck with a mousetrap, shoot him with both a revolver and a crossbow, bisect him with an axe, and finally flatten him with an anvil. And all of these objects are human-scale.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero, an {{ironic}} version, in that Dawson ''fixes'' the DeathTrap: Ratigan's DeathTrap has fortunately been foiled by the broken record. Dawson bellows out his "PullYourselfTogether" at Basil, and causes the record needle to jump past the broken spot, thereby starting the DeathTrap up again. It's purely RuleOfFunny in action, but allows the more spectacular escape to happen.

* HandGagging:
**Basil does this to Dawson, as does Ratigan to Olivia--before she bites it. And the kid who blew the raspberry at Ratigan in the Queen's palace was quickly silenced this way by his mother.
** Dawson gives a rather angry one to Basil while he's in the middle of his HeroicBSOD, which actually ''helps'' Basil, leading to his EurekaMoment detailed above.

* AllThereInTheScript: Miss Kitty's name isn't brought up anywhere in the film, but it can be seen on her character model sheet. Although it isn't likely to be her actual name, but a descriptor.

* AllThereInTheScript: More in the original books: the original book series reveals that Ratigan's first name is [[TheIrishMob Padraic]], which is still considered canon for the movie although it's never mentioned anywhere.
** Interestingly, it also reveals that originally, Ratigan was a very ugly mouse ''mistaken'' for a rat, instead of a rat ''willingly'' passing for an ugly mouse.
* AllThereInTheManual: The name of the Queen of Mice is "Queen Moustoria" is never mentioned in the film but is in the novelization and some spin-off children books.
