Nearly every toy in the shop is operating on its own. You look as if you’re in some trouble. Fidget: (pushes her inside and puts the cork in the bottle.) Holmes: I observe that there’s a good deal of German music on the program. Dawson: Do-do you think there’s a chance? (He looks around the insides of mechanical toys, where all the gears are missing.) Ratigan: What was THAT?! What? Unfortunately, Dawson has already drained his beer. The camera cuts to a few moments later in the street, where Toby is sniffing at the ground. We found it! No one can doubt what we know you can do.♪, (Several of his thugs are now rushing towards him, handing him a robe, a crown, and a diamond topped scepter. Then Felicia was defeated. Ratigan: (Chuckles) Oh, my dear Fidget. Toby! Close set eyes. I'm getting ahead of myself. Dawson, look out for your-. Title: The Great Mouse Detective (The camera breaks out of the clouds again, and now we have a bird’s eye view of downtown London.Below, a carriage is moving through the streets.) (He shakes a finger at Basil, who once more rushes right by the two of them. Fidget cowers as it moves higher. Ratigan: You don’t know what a delightful dilemma it was trying to decide on the most appropriate method for your demise. He gazes at the broken doll in mock sorrow, then lunges threateningly at Flaversham.). We merely look for a seedy pub at the only…spot…. The title card for the film's 1992 reissue. He smiles triumphantly with a gun in his hand as lightning strikes. Fidget: (Singsong voice) I got the gears, I got the tools, I got the uniforms, I got the girl, heh-heh-heh-heh! Dawson puts on his hat and prepares to leave. Fidget slams the window shut and climbs up the cash register and back onto the shelves.). Basil: Don’t be absurd. I’ve had my share of adversity, thanks to that miserable second-rate detective, Basil of Baker Street. The rat scowls at the resultant stain and wipes it off with a hankerchief.) You look perfect. His friends are trying to reach him as fast as they can, but Basil can’t hold out much longer. Ratigan: Oh I love it! Ratigan checks his empty pocket for his missing bell just before 10:00 strikes and Big Ben's bell rings loudly. Basil: Please, I’m trying to concentrate. She holds it up for him and he licks it off her hand. Dawson’s voice: It was the Eve of our good Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and the year Her Majesty’s government came…(More forebodingly) to the very brink of disaster. Ratigan: (gets in the detective’s face.) Toby remains standing. I hope you guys like it. Ratigan: (Mock crying) For years, that insufferable pipsqueak has interfered with my plans. Dawson: (In normal voice) Uh.. I’ll have a dry sherry with… oh perhaps a twist of-. This is a sequel I made for The Great Mouse Detective, but it's based on Sherlock Holmes the Musical, or as they call it The Revenge of Sherlock Holmes. Oh, ow! He puts one arm around Dawson and holds the other out in the air. Dawson flinches as the bone-breaking metal vibrates slightly. Ratigan stops laughing and clears his throat, and sits on the banister to address the Robot Queen.) It is a very bittersweet moment as Olivia embraces the mouse who saved her life, as well as her father. Ratigan: (Puzzled, impatiently) You’re not coming through. His face is red with fury, but just as quickly as his temper rose, Ratigan calms down, and he scoops Fidget into his arms. Ratigan: Oh, I love it when I’m nasty. Dawson? Dawson: Indeed it is, Miss. But how could you possibly-, Basil: Quite simple, really. Basil: (Apologetically) Don’t worry, old fellow. For years, I’ve tried to capture him and I’ve come close… (He stands and holds his fist out towards the picture.) The little girl struggles and finally pulls Ratigan's hand off her. The slightest detail may be important. Ratigan: Stay where you are or the girl dies! Basil: Quickly Dawson, we’ve not a moment to lose! Fidget has made it to the edge of the balcony, where Felicia is sitting below, waiting patiently. Basil, Dawson and Flaversham rush forward, only to freeze as Ratigan holds Olivia threateningly over the edge. I-I-I'm trying to find Basil of Baker Street. ), Movies directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, Fidget: (Straining) Nuts… Open wide. Basil glares at her in annoyance, resigned to having her along. Basil: I’ve spotted our peg-legged- (he looks to the bar, but Fidget is gone. Ratigan is at the door, monitoring his progress. Impatiently, Ratigan yells from the doorway. I’ve been outwitted! They stare at Basil in shock as the barmaid recovers from her shock, clearly unwilling to admit her knowledge of the criminal mastermind.

(he sits on his violin, and accidentally by violin. Ah, yes, that’s better. From inside her hiding place, Olivia cracks the door and watches in terror as her father and Fidget struggle. Dawson and Flaversham release air from an open balloon, closing the distance between them and Ratigan easily. (Ratigan's temper flares as he seizes the robot by the neck, knowing what's next.). ), Bartholomew: ♪Oh, Ratigan Oh, Ratigan You’re the tops and that’s that. Narrator: A toymaker is missing. Olivia is bravely standing up to the villain. Ratigan watches from behind the curtains with the voice was really Flaversham. Dawson is trembling behind the leg of a chair. (Fidget and the other thugs pull the ribbons and sides down to reveal an exact robot replica of the Queen. No depravity he wouldn’t commit. Got his scent? (He gently pushes Mrs. Judson back to the kitchen.) Basil pulls out a cigarette, intending to look at home in the pub. Miss Kitty: ♪ Hey fellas ♪ I’ll take off all my blues ♪ Hey fellas ♪ There’s nothin’ I won’t do ♪ Just for you!♪. Fidget: (Panicking) Not me, you idiot. Broken wing. However, Basil and the others have finally caught up, and the detective is preparing to jump. Queen: A present?

(Cut from Olivia and Dawson setting off to Baker Street. She darts through bushes and flower beds and scrambles up a wall, where Toby can only leap up halfway and bark at her. Get ready, Dawson…Steady… (Dawson can barely muffle his panicked fear.) With Ratigan at the pedal, there is no one to steer, and he turns to see he's heading directly for Big Ben! (She soon discovers her pillows are nothing but feathers.) Ratigan: Oh, this is wicked! as long as one can think. (Basil is clearly not listening to her as puts on his house robe. There won't be too many songs, just a couple of them. Fidget's attention is focused on the showgirls as well, and doesn’t notice that Basil has seen him. ), (Above, others have been swinging from chandeliers, and one mouse begins to fall. Made a fool of! Ratigan has his back turned and is leaning against a bottle, rubbing his temples. Basil: If it isn’t our peg-legged friend. I had baby bonnet, girl in bag and Basil chased me. (opens the note and begins reading.) She moves behind the curtain as the band joins in, picking up the beat even more. (He retrieves an Inverness cape from a suit of armor and puts it on. He walks over to the shoe and sees Olivia sitting on a medicine box crying softly.) Our peg-legged quarry can’t be far now. He opens his paper again, and we see that he has marked several places available for rent.) But where are your mother and father? You should have chosen your friends more carefully. He smirks, and in a flash of lightning the image cuts back to Basils flat, first showing Ratigan's picture showing the same smirk. I was in the toy store getting uniforms when I heard "A-roo A-roo" [i.e. (On another table, four different pairs of shoes are being turned in a circular motion, first being brushed with black paint, and then setting a print on a stack of paper. In 19th-century London, Mr. Flaversham (voiced by Alan Young), a toy-maker mouse, is suddenly kidnapped, so his faithful daughter Olivia (Susanne Pollatschek) convinces the famous detective Basil of Baker Street (Barrie Ingham), who's aided by a curious Dr. Dawson (Val Bettin), to search for the girl's missing father. Dawson steps out in pirate disguise, with a bandana, an earring, an eye patch, and a stripped shirt that is much too short for him. The patrons are already armed with chairs, darts, and one with an ax, ready to throw them at whoever is next. Close your eyes. Dawson enters behind him.). Basil tries to leap for him, but as he does, the blocks tumble and fall, taking Basil down with them. Basil, the rodent Sherlock Holmes, investigates the kidnapping of a toy-maker and uncovers its link to his arch-enemy, Professor Ratigan. Dawson looks around in terror and throws the pillows onto an armchair. ), Thugs: ♪ The world’s greatest criminal mind!! …native Mongolian manufacture, no water mark. But as Ratigan pulls out the bell again, they get their inspiration back. Why you gibbering little…. Come along, Olivia. (Olivia takes the handkerchief and blows her nose. Toby has the most splendid sense of smell of any hound I’ve trained. Fidget's eyes widen as he sees the team discovering his handiwork, and he darts away. The superior mind has triumphed! The two men leave, leaving Basil, Olivia, and Dawson free to come out into the open. Basil looks behind him, and his head is crashed between the cymbals of the firemen band music box, which has started up again as well. Olivia is now annoyed, and puts her hands on her hips.). He moves in front of Toby.) Dawson: What? A sealed cap rattles as Dawson walks straight into it. Ratigan: Tsk, tsk, tsk. Basil! A small propeller is operating a bellow, and attached to that are several cigarettes and a pipe, all of which are puffing.) Robot Queen: (ducks down to free itself.) Basil: There, there, Mrs. Judson, it’s quite all right. Ratigan: Oh, I can just see that insufferable grin on his smug face. The Thugs boo heavily. (He and Olivia glance at each other as they both examine the footprints. An American Tail is a 1986 American-Irish animated musical adventure comedy-drama film directed by Don Bluth from a screenplay by Judy Freudberg and Tony Geiss and a story by David Kirschner, Freudberg and Geiss. A knife suddenly lands at the floor in Dawson's path, and he stumbles back, knocking a woman’s chair forward. (She takes off Olivia’s hat and wrings it dry, then removes the girl’s scarf.) Basil: A corrupt, vicious, demented, low-life scoundrel. The camera zooms downward as the storm outside gains power. (Toby pauses and looks at Basil, confused at this last piece of the description) Oh, he’s a peg-legged bat with a broken wing. Basil starts rushing ahead, urging Dawson to follow him. Basil rolls and catches the ends of the rotating gear, trying to pull himself back up as Ratigan prepares to deliver another blow. Toby promptly sits. His thugs bow as the lighting becomes normal again. An old man with a cast and crutch approaches him angrily. Olivia bites his hand, making Ratigan scream in pain, giving Basil the opportunity to climb up the gear and seize the professor’s cape, and tangle it between two gears.
