'The Great Mouse Detective' (1986)

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.
