* MagnumOpus: Of the Dark Age Disney movies, debatedly; it was the first movie to incorporate Hollywood style traits after Woolie Reithermann's retirement/death and ''The Black Cauldron's'' failure mostly ended the older styles.

It's on their own pages.
** 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.

* MomentOfAwesome: The escape from Ratigan's trap, capped by their posing for the camera ("Smile, everyone!").

* NightmareFuel: Ratigan, once his true rat personality comes out.

* VindicatedByHistory: Overshadowed in the 80's by Don Bluth's ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', and for awhile was overlooked or lumped together with the other films of the Dark Age. Now it's fondly remembered as ones of the films which reinvigorated Disney Animation.

* OlderThanTheyThink: This is widely credited with the first extensive used of computer animation in a Disney feature film, when in fact it had been used for several special effects and a boat in ''TheBlackCauldron''. Of corse, Disney [[OldShame doesn't like to talk about that one]].

* DracoInLeatherPants: Fidget of all people. While he has some comical and likeable qualities, the manner in which he kidnaps Mr. Flavershim and Olivia is pretty violent and scary at one point he suggests throwing Olivia off the baloon to lighten the load. Seems so loveable, doesn't he?

No, it didn't.
* CultClassic: One of Disney's most underrated films, along with ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'', only this movie made it's money back and convinced the studio to continue making animated films.

** Rattigan, despite being the villain, and a ruthless one at that, is pretty awesome, both in his over-the-top personality and the lengths he'll go to just so he can rub his success in his enemies' face. Of corse, that's what you get when you combine the animation of GlenKeane with VincentPrice's voice.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: When this film's title was changed from ''Basil of Baker Street'' to ''The Great Mouse Detective'', the name change earned [[http://www.lettersofnote.com/2011/09/seven-little-men-help-girl.html a good deal of scorn]], even from inside the studio, suggesting titles for their other films such as ''[[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Seven Little Men Help a Girl]]''. The result was animator Ed Gombert wrote a memo with these alternate names that circulated through Disney Animation and eventually reached then-studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg, setting off a chain of events that left the memo to be immortalized in a January 1987 episode of ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' and earned animation a tongue-lashing from Katzenberg's newly installed right hand Peter Schneider, whose name Gombert used when he wrote the memo. Changing ''Rapunzel'' to ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' and ''Literature/TheSnowQueen'' to ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' would receive similar reactions years later.
