* ActingForTwo: Barrie Ingham voices both Basil and the unlucky Bartholomew. Interestingly, that makes two out of the three characters in the movie who call Ratigan a rat (the other being Olivia), and one out of two that live to tell the tale.

** Having a song written for him certainly helped. * DuelingMovies: With ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', another animated movie about mice coming out the same year (though it didn't come out until a few months afterward). While the film made it's money back, ''American Tail'' was a smash hit and was, at the time, the highest-grossing animated feature ever made. Both of these things would factor into Disney deciding to re-beef their animation department.

* DuelingMovies: With ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', another animated movie about mice coming out the same year (though it didn't come out until a few months afterward). The Great Mouse Detective lost in the end, but that didn't mean it wasn't successful; in fact, it convinced Disney that its animation unit still had a future. ** The success of An American Tail probably helped convince Disney as well.

* IAmNotShazam: The lead dancer at the bar is listed in the credits as "Miss Kitty Mouse," but, Fanon aside, this doesn't actually appear to be her name. Rather, it's a description of her. She isn't "Miss Kitty Mouse," but "the Miss Kitty mouse."
