* ActorAllusion: When Bill the Lizard tries to assure Ratigan that he's a "big mouse" to convince him to spare Bartholomew, his voice suddenly switches to a high-pitched falsetto, referring to the particular [[MickeyMouse big mouse]] his voice actor was best known for providing.

* HilariousInHindsight: The box that Olivia is sitting on when Dawson finds her reads "Dr. Gaston's Liver Pills." 5 years later, we would meet [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Dr. Gaston]], and he was evidently health conscious, based on eating 4 dozen eggs every day.

** 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.

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.
