After the flop of "The Black Cauldron," the modest success of this rodent version of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories earned the studio's animation division a stay of execution. Vincent Price provided the voice of Professor Ratigan, the arch-nemesis of Basil of Baker Street, the mouse incarnation of Holmes. A chase sequence set inside Big Ben earned wide acclaim for its early use of CGI.
