** A potential one to British comedy ''Series/FawltyTowers'' as Manuel's pet rat shares his name with Basil.

** Olivia Flaversham has one, heard nearly any time she screams. The only time she shrieks differently is at Fidget's second JumpScare in the toy shop/ ** Fidget's screaming from off-screen among Ratigan summoning Felicia is actually a StockSoundEffect from Disney's sound library, not Candy Candido actually screaming. Anyone who has the 1964 Disney LP record "Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House" will recognize it from there.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Basil uses the Queen Victoria robot to tell Ratigan where to go. -->'''Basil:''' Most assuredly... you insidious fiend. You're not my Royal Consort! You're a cheap fraud and impostor. A corrupt, vicious, demented, scoundrel. There's no evil scheme you wouldn't concoct. No depravity you wouldn't commit. You, Professor, are none other than a foul stenchus rodentus, commonly known... ''(Basil pops out)'' as a ''sewer rat!''

* SherlockScanSherlockScan: Well, duh. Starting from his first with Dawson: -->'''Basil:''' You've sewn your torn cuff together with a Lambert stitch, which, of course, only a surgeon uses. And the thread is a unique form of cat-gut, easily distinguished ''(aside to Olivia)'' by its peculiar pungency ''(to Dawson again)'' found only in the Afghan provinces.

* SapientEatSapient: Although cats and dogs are less [[SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism anthropomorphic]] than smaller creatures, Felicia still emotes to a considerably human degree, and appears to explicitly understand Ratigan's instructions and plans. (Specifically when it comes to who and who not to eat.)

"There Is No Kill Like Overkill" is already there.
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 Queen Victoria]]...) 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.
