Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Basil, The Great Mouse Detective in the UK. Rereleased in 1992 as The Adventures of the Great Mouse Detective.A 1986 Disney Animated Canon film (Number 26) with no Medieval European Fantasy setting, no True Love's Kiss, and no princesses (although there is a mouse version of Queen Victoria...) More importantly, the film’s major success, both with critics and at the box office (though it didn’t make much cash as An American Tail), after the failure of The Black Cauldron convinced the new senior management of Walt Disney Pictures that their animation department had a future after all and it should be noted that this film actually saved Disney from going bankrupt, similar to what Cinderella and 101 Dalmatians did, back in 1950 and 1961, respectively.This Animated Adaptation of Basil of Baker Street, a series of children's books by Eve Titus, tells a story of Sherlock Holmes in a Mouse World. When toymaker and mechanical genius Hiram Flaversham is kidnapped, his daughter Olivia hires the greatest detective in all mousedom, Basil of Baker Street, to find him. On her way, she is found by the Narrator and Dr. Watson's Captain Ersatz, Dr. Dawson, just back in London after serving overseas in the military. Basil is reluctant to take the case until he realizes the bat who kidnapped Olivia's father works for his Archenemy, the Diabolical Mastermind Professor Ratigan (Vincent Price).Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })With the help of his trained hound, Toby, Basil tracks the bat to a human toy shop, but he escapes and kidnaps Olivia. Ratigan uses her to force her father to complete a robot duplicate of the mouse queen as part of his Evil Plan to take over the kingdom. After learning Basil is on the case, the Evil Genius decides to use this as an opportunity to humiliate and defeat his rival once and for all. Basil falls for his trap hook, line, and sinker and, with some encouragement from Dawson, narrowly escapes the Death Trap in enough time to save the queen and engage Ratigan in a Chase Scene by air that culminates in a gruesome Monumental Battle at Big Ben.The film was the directorial debut of John Musker and Ron Clements (here credited alongside Burny Mattinson and Dave Michener), who'd go on to direct the film which properly kicked off the Disney Renaissance, The Little Mermaid, three years later, afterwards becoming the studio's most prolific directing team for the next thirty years with Aladdin, Hercules, Treasure Planet, The Princess and the Frog and Moana.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })

Can't Kill You, Still Need You
 The Great Mouse Detective / int_1206d299
comment
Can't Kill You, Still Need You: After Hiram Flaversham refuses Ratigan's command to complete a clockwork robot to impersonate the Queen and expresses that he isn't afraid to die, Ratigan instead threatens the life of his daughter, Olivia. Ratigan is initially disappointed in Fidget for getting Basil on his trail in the toy shop, and punishes Fidget by trying to have Felicia eat him. He changes his mind when he realizes Fidget can be used to bait Basil later in the film.

Heroic BSoD: Basil undergoes a near-fatal one after he falls for Ratigan's trap. Dawson has a minor one after Olivia is kidnapped by Fidget. Basil also has a minor one earlier in the film, after finding the bullets in his latest investigation don't match. He goes into a depression, slinks into his easy chair and starts playing a mournful tune on his violin with a depressed look on his face.

comment
Does This Remind You of Anything?: One hundred percent unintentional, but there's a moment where Basil points to a small circular hole in a pane of glass and calls it "our friend's point of entrance" while sticking Dawson's finger into it. He then shows how if you pull, the glass operates like a door.

comment
Gratuitous Laboratory Flasks: Basil has a chemistry setup in his home with colorful fluids, which he uses to determine that Fidget's burglary list has come in contact with salt water, leading Basil to deduce that Fidget frequents a sleazy pub "where the sewer meets the riverfront." In fact, when Ratigan snares Basil in his ambush 15 minutes late, he chides Basil, "Trouble with the chemistry set, old boy?"

Alcohol-Induced Idiocy
 The Great Mouse Detective / int_16ddefda
comment
Alcohol-Induced Idiocy: Professor Ratigan congratulates himself on his outstanding villainy and celebrates with his minions. One of them, Bartholomew, gets so drunk that he unwittingly calls his master a rat (which he is), Ratigan's Berserk Button. He takes Bartholomew with him and serves him up to his pet cat for lunch all while Bart is completely oblivious to this and still singing Ratigan's praises. Justified at the Bad-Guy Bar with Dawson. The drinks given to him and Basil have been drugged, but by the time Basil figures this out, Dawson's already downed an entire pint of the stuff. When Basil's attention is drawn away by a clue, Dawson ends up onstage with the dancers, prompting a Face Palm from Basil.

Villain Song: "The World's Greatest Criminal Mind" has Ratigan recount his past criminal successes and history with the detective always hot on his trail, while his minions feed his ego about how evil and brilliant he is. "Goodbye, So Soon" could count as well since it is a smug component of a death trap for said detective.

Reality Ensues: Basil decides to infiltrate Ratigan's hideout with Dawson, who is a doctor with no experience in the detective field. Dawson only agrees to help save Olivia and make up for losing her. Sure enough, he blows their cover too easily, stalls Basil from following Fidget, and isn't a physical match for Ratigan or his army.

Papa Wolf: Dawson, Basil and Flaversham care deeply about Olivia's safety. While Flaversham is Ratigan's prisoner for most of the movie, he gets to show off his chops when Basil saves him and helps him rescue his daughter. He helps Basil assemble their rudimentary hot air balloon and navigates with Dawson to catch Olivia when Basil saves her from the clock tower.

Trapped in Villainy: It's implied that Ratigan's henchmen have no choice but to do his bidding. If they step out of line, he can ring his bell and they all become cat food. Running is also not an option, with his stamina and smarts.

comment
All There in the Script: The original book series reveals that Ratigan's first name is Padraic. This is still considered canon for the movie, but it's never mentioned anywhere. The name of the Queen of Mice is "Queen Moustoria" is never mentioned in the film but is in the novelization and some spin-off children's books. Miss Kitty's name isn't brought up anywhere in the film, but it can be seen on her character model sheet. Although it isn't likely to be her actual name, but a descriptor.

Rude Hero, Nice Sidekick: Basil, a Good Is Not Nice detective, has a tendency to be brusque and unconcerned with others (he has No Social Skills), while Dr. Dawson is an awkward Sensitive Guy who gets involved in the adventure to begin with because he can't stand to see a little girl cry. Given that this is a Sherlock Holmes story with mice, the dynamic between Basil and Dawson mirrors the one between Holmes and Watson (particularly the Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce versions). This being Disney, he (and Olivia) wind up defrosting Basil.

Mythology Gag
 The Great Mouse Detective / int_26ac510e
comment
Mythology Gag: Plenty homages to original Holmes novels : The first meeting between Basil and Dawnson reflects the first meeting between Holmes and Watson in "A Study in Scarlet". In both cases, Holmes/Basil calls his future partner a "Doctor" and explains how he deduced he was a Doctor and that he just came back from Afghanistan. Toby is Holmes's dog from the story "The Sign Of the Four". Holmes is voiced by Basil Rathbone (who played Holmes in 14 movies!) and his lines are from the story "The Adventure of the Red-Headed League". Basil himself is named after Rathbone. The final fight between Basil and Ratigan reflects the final fight between Holmes and Professor Moriarty in the story "The Final Problem". When Dawson says (commenting on Basil's deduction skills) "It's amazing", Basil replies, "Actually it's... elementary, my dear Dawson", a reference to Holmes's so-called catchphrase. Basil repeats this phrase when going through the maps to find the location of Ratigan's hide-out. Another Holmes catchphrase "The game's afoot!" is used by Basil as well. Ratigan's voodoo doll looks just like Basil in Paul Galdone's illustrations in the original "Basil of Baker Street" stories. A silhouette of Sherlock Holmes is shown in the window of 221 Baker Street, not 221b. The 'B' is above Basil's mousehole. When they venture into Holmes' rooms, there's a picture of an elegant lady over the mantlepiece who Holmes fans will recognize as Irene Adler.

 The Great Mouse Detective / int_280d7f43
comment
Anachronistic Animal: Toby the the Basset hound although more moderate than show Basset hounds in the 1980s and especially since, he has more exaggerated and easily tripped on ears, far more excessive eyebrow, eye, and torso skin, somewhat shorter legs, far more exaggerated flaws, than a real Basset hound in 1897, London, England or elsewhere, would have. Averted with Felicia the Persian. She is a traditional or doll-faced Persian that would likely show up in the movie's time period. Modern Peke-faced Persians developed during the 1960s and only became popular in the 1990s (after the film came out).

 The Great Mouse Detective / int_280f59bf
comment
Extremely Short Time Span: It's a bit dubious as to exactly how much time passes in-universe, but the film takes place over, at most, two nights (June 20-21 of 1897, to be precise). The majority of the film happens within the span of just a few hours. Ratigan's comment "We will have our little device ready by tomorrow evening, won't we?" is some indication that everything happens relatively fast.

 The Great Mouse Detective / int_2a090d00

Basil and Dawson's sailor disguises are poor and this is Lampshaded by Ratigan. It's odd considering that Basil clearly has much more convincing disguises at his disposal, such as the large Chinese mouse he was dressed as earlier in the film when he was introduced. Perhaps he didn't expect to be abruptly confronted by Ratigan in person, but that hardly fits with Basil's usual tendency to consider all possibilities.

When the Clock Strikes Twelve: Mercifully averted. However, the original script called for Big Ben to strike midnight instead of ten o'clock like in the film.

Humanlike Animal Aging: Mice in this universe seem to live exactly as long as their human counterparts. The Queen of Mice has been crowned the very same day (20th of June, 1837) as the human Queen Victoria, and has been on the throne for 60 years.

Kick the Dog: When Ratigan threatens Olivia, he slowly crushes the doll that was her birthday present in front of Flaversham. He also literally tosses her when she calls him a giant rat in the climax. During "The World's Greatest Criminal Mind", it's mentioned that one of Ratigan's previous plots involved drowning widows and orphans.

2D Visuals, 3D Effects: One of the first uses of CGI (after The Black Cauldron) in an animated feature, traced from wire-frame graphics onto animation cels and certainly a far more conspicuous user than its predecessor—where The Black Cauldron mostly limited CGI to special effects and stuff (i.e. glittering stars, chroma-keying smoke into the scenes, etc.), The Great Mouse Detective made extensive and notable use of it in the interior of Big Ben. Very impressive stuff for its time.

Paper-Thin Disguise
 The Great Mouse Detective / int_48b9731f
comment
Paper-Thin Disguise: Basil and Dawson's sailor disguises are poor and this is Lampshaded by Ratigan. It's odd considering that Basil clearly has much more convincing disguises at his disposal, such as the large Chinese mouse he was dressed as earlier in the film when he was introduced. Perhaps he didn't expect to be abruptly confronted by Ratigan in person, but that hardly fits with Basil's usual tendency to consider all possibilities. Queen Mousetoria does notice that Fidget is very poorly faking being a guard, but only has time for a disbelieving "Have you been with us...long?" before events overtake her. The Queen's guests aren't too quick to pick up on the fact that her double looks a bit... robotic.

Unconventional Vehicle Chase: Ratigan flees with Moe Olivia as his hostage in an airship powered by a bicycle-like assembly at its tail. Ratigan is pursued by The Hero Basil of Baker Street in a makeshift helium balloon powered by jetting the gas from the balloon's bottom. The chase runs a merry distance over London; Ratigan's Fidgit-powered craft jettisons Fidgit, and Ratigan himself propels the craft, while Basil's balloon stays close behind despite bleeding off copious amounts of helium.

Ratigan's infamous death trap puts Basil's chemistry set to shame. It's a Rube Goldberg Device that will trigger several lethal weapons (he couldn't choose which one he wanted, so he picked all of them) via a marble that will roll down a chute as soon as a record player is finished. It also triggers a camera to record the climactic moment.

Blowing a Raspberry
 The Great Mouse Detective / int_5619ea34

Less extreme, but the drama and intensity of the chase sequence in the final act is somewhat marred by the fact that, whenever the action cuts from Ratigan's zeppelin back to Basil and the others, the release of helium from the balloon essentially results in it endlessly Blowing a Raspberry. This does, however, add to the zany madcap nature of the chase, and provides some welcome humor just before things are about to get very dark.

Let's Get Dangerous!: Toby to the mice is a Big Friendly Dog, until Basil tells him that they need to solve a case. Then Toby is all business. In the climax, he chases down Felicia so that she can't eat the queen and distracts her from the "meal". Dawson and Flaversham in the climax. When Ratigan's plot is exposed and Basil leads a dogpile on him, the two mice join in on the assault. After Fidget takes Olivia hostage while escaping with the rat, Basil commands Flaversham and Dawson to make a rudimentary hot balloon to keep up the chase. Father and doctor are completely focused on the task to save Olivia, and keep the balloon steady when Basil jumps off onto the rat's dirigible.

Spanner in the Works: Dawson ends up accidentally delaying Basil when they go to Ratigan's hideout to rescue Olivia. Due to getting drugged and starting a bar brawl while tipsy, Dawson needs a few minutes for Basil to slap him to his senses. Then he goes the wrong way down the pipe. As a result, Ratigan says they were 15 minutes late and doesn't stay around to watch the Death Trap. Dawson then convinces Basil they should escape, which Basil wouldn't have done if he were alone.

Idiot Ball: Basil and Dr. Dawson grab it pretty hard in the toy store by not realizing that someone had to have set off all the toys' mechanisms and that they didn't just wind themselves up. Basil should have instantly realized that whoever turned them on must have done so to provide cover for himself, and Dawson messed up by just letting Olivia wander off by herself. Basil again. When he finally discovers Ratigan's hideout, he insists on going in alone with just his good-natured but inexperienced new partner, instead of also bringing the police or some other form of backup in case Ratigan discovered him and had too many goons with him, or if there was a trap set up for him. The latter of the two is what happens. Ratigan's intelligence tends to drop considerably when he's very angry, his rage causing him to act on impulse several times to his own detriment.

So Ratigan rigs a camera to capture Basil's dying moment instead.

Hollywood Glass Cutter: A variation: When Basil and Dawson trail Fidget to the toy shop he broke into, Basil sees a hole drilled into the window—a small hole, the size of a single finger—and immediately realizes that's how Fidget got in. Dawson wonders how anyone could fit through such a tiny hole. Basil demonstrates by popping Dawson's finger into the hole, then using that finger to pull the window open on its hinge.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: an ironic version, in that Dawson fixes the Death Trap. See, Ratigan's Death Trap has fortunately been foiled by the broken record. Dawson bellows out his "Pull Yourself Together!" at Basil, and causes the record needle to jump past the broken spot, thereby starting the Death Trap up again. It's purely Rule of Funny in action but allows the more spectacular escape to happen.

Symbolism: The material Basil uses to create his makeshift hot-air balloon? The Union Jack flag. Emphasized when Ratigan, in the middle of his Big "SHUT UP!" to Olivia, is freaked out by the flag suddenly rising hugely into view behind his zeppelin—and considering what he'd tried to do the Mouse Queen, extremely apt in a "the British Empire rising up against its enemies" sense.

Establishing Character Moment
 The Great Mouse Detective / int_7febc23b
comment
Establishing Character Moment: Basil doesn't appear at all for the first ten minutes or so of the film, letting the plot be established without him. When Dawson and Olivia are at Basil's flat waiting for his return, the movie (and the audience) is completely thrown off by the abrupt entrance of an insane-looking Chinese mouse, brandishing a revolver and screaming "I found him!" No sooner does the mouse storm in that it's shown that the Chinese mouse is Basil, wearing a realistic mask and a fat suit. But even after this, Basil utterly ignores the entreaties of the heroes to obsessively test his theory on matching bullets, howling in anguish when he is proved wrong and slipping into a spell of depression. It's only after all this that Olivia is able to get a word in and set the plot into motion, but by then, it's clear that Basil is not your typical Disney hero. Besides his Villain Song, Ratigan's debut establishes his character quite easily; while threatening Flaversham, he speaks very tenderly about what could happen to his daughter, gently holds the toy he made for her... and squeezes it until it breaks.

Dramatic Thunder: As the standard for Disney animated films, Basil and Ratigan's big fight on Big Ben near the end is accompanied by a strong thunderstorm, which clears up once Basil and Ratigan fall off the clock, and Basil survives thanks to using a piece of Ratigan's getaway blimp. Also when Basil is first delivering exposition on who Ratigan is.

comment
There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Ratigan's intent with the Death Trap he's constructed for Basil is thorough. Unable to decide which method to eliminate Basil with, he simply uses all of them: Snap his neck with a mousetrap, shoot him with both a derringer and a crossbow, bisect him with an axe, and finally flatten him with an anvil. All of these objects are human-scale.

Villainous Breakdown: Ratigan, towards the final battle, turns from a formal and composed rat into a hulking and monstrous one. It's even the trope's picture on the animated films page! It is made even more frightening is the fact he was previously so Faux Affably Evil. Up to that point, Ratigan has succeeded in keeping Olivia and her father separated from each other. When he sees Basil successfully reuniting them before his very eyes, and thus depriving him of what little victory he had left, Ratigan completely loses it and focuses just on killing Basil with his own two hands.

Ratigan has two themes; a solo clarinet and a dark french horn/bass combination.

Homage: "Elementary, my dear Dawson". The entire movie, really, especially one scene where the silhouettes of two men who are obviously Holmes and Watson are visible discussing a case. The Holmes expy even shares a name with probably the most famous actor who played Sherlock. (So would that make this a Holmsage?) In fact, in The Adventure of Black Peter, Holmes mentions he's known as (Captain) Basil around the Sumner area, though that much is coincidence. There's also Toby the dog, whom Holmes used in The Sign of the Four.

comment
Mood Whiplash: The opening scene begins as a sweet and tender moment between Flaversham and his daughter, only to turn into a violent and disturbing (though thankfully brief) fight scene as Fidget kidnaps the toymaker. The scene ends with the once bright and cheery shop now darkened and wrecked, while poor little Olivia plaintively cries out to her father, only for her voice to echo away in the fog. And then the extremely jaunty, upbeat title music starts playing. Less extreme, but the drama and intensity of the chase sequence in the final act is somewhat marred by the fact that, whenever the action cuts from Ratigan's zeppelin back to Basil and the others, the release of helium from the balloon essentially results in it endlessly Blowing a Raspberry. This does, however, add to the zany madcap nature of the chase, and provides some welcome humor just before things are about to get very dark. This happens during Ratigan's villain song when the scene started out whimsical and fun. Then, the scene starts going dark the moment Bartholomew accidentally calls Ratigan a "rat" and it was then that Ratigan ends up feeding Bartholomew to his pet cat Felicia, causing the tone to shift to pure terror.

Red Eyes, Take Warning: If Ratigan's body starts to quiver uncontrollably and his eyes become blood-red, START RUNNING FOR YOUR LIFE! This is used as a blink-and-you'll-miss-it bit of foreshadowing early on in the film. When we are first introduced to Ratigan, after he has just completed his Villain Song, he turns to Fidget, asking if everything is going as planned. When Fidget nervously reveals that he accidentally led Basil onto their master plan, Ratigan momentarily flies into a blinding rage, his eyes glowing a deep, bloody red, going so far as to sic Felicia on Fidget. But once Ratigan realizes that he can use Basil's involvement to his advantage, his rage subsides, but the redness in his eyes lingers until the next scene.

Digital Destruction: The 2002 DVD release of the film messes up parts of the film's music score; there are parts where it sounds like a good chunk of the orchestra is missing! This is corrected on future releases.

Too Dumb to Live
 The Great Mouse Detective / int_b58b4e3c
comment
Too Dumb to Live: Poor Bartholemew. He was a little too fond of the drink for his own good and pressed his bad boss's berserk button. Also, poor Olivia. It's best not to wander off from the detectives protecting you when there's a kidnapper on the loose. She almost dies several times because of this, and the only reason she doesn't is because said detective gets to her in time, each time.

Basil and Dr. Dawson grab it pretty hard in the toy store by not realizing that someone had to have set off all the toys' mechanisms and that they didn't just wind themselves up. Basil should have instantly realized that whoever turned them on must have done so to provide cover for himself, and Dawson messed up by just letting Olivia wander off by herself.

Professor Ratigan congratulates himself on his outstanding villainy and celebrates with his minions. One of them, Bartholomew, gets so drunk that he unwittingly calls his master a rat (which he is), Ratigan's Berserk Button. He takes Bartholomew with him and serves him up to his pet cat for lunch all while Bart is completely oblivious to this and still singing Ratigan's praises.

For Doom the Bell Tolls: Used prominently in this film where Ratigan uses his handbell to call his pet cat Felicia, which is then the sound of a church bell is heard in the first scene. He calls her to let her eat someone as an execution. The trope is used even more at the climax where the detective Basil of Baker Street steals Ratigan's bell and rings it in triumph just before Big Ben tolls causing the villain to fall to his death.

To Lupin III during the clock tower fight, The Castle of Cagliostro specifically. Disney also references its own movies with a Dumbo toy in the toy shop and Bill the Lizard as one of Ratigan's mooks.

Eureka Moment: Dawson fruitlessly tries talking Basil out of a Heroic BSoD while the two are in Ratigan's Death Trap. Dawson finally gets fed up, saying that if Basil is feeling sorry for himself, then he should just set off the trap and get it over with. This gives Basil the idea to use the trap's mechanism's against it to free both of them. Ratigan gets one when he learns Basil's on the case. Rather than let Basil inevitably find him in the act, Ratigan gets the idea to lead Basil right to him in order to ambush him with his gang.

Nice Mice: Most of the mice in the movie (Basil, Dawson, Olivia, Olivia's father etc.) are moral, heroic etc. Averted with Ratigan's minions, most of them are mice and thuggish criminals. Ratigan, by contrast, is a rat (even though he vehemently denies being one) but in the books he was also a mouse.

comment
OOC Is Serious Business: It's established that Ratigan reacts violently whenever he is called a rat. Then when he lures Basil into a trap, he instead goes for Technically a Smile and instead rips off Basil's fake mustache while taunting him. Eventually, it's revealed that Ratigan is letting it slide because he's captured Basil and won their game of mouse-and-rat.

Toby the the Basset hound although more moderate than show Basset hounds in the 1980s and especially since, he has more exaggerated and easily tripped on ears, far more excessive eyebrow, eye, and torso skin, somewhat shorter legs, far more exaggerated flaws, than a real Basset hound in 1897, London, England or elsewhere, would have.

Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!: A rather unusual example, as the animals do live in a human world, despite humans mostly being in the background. But while there are anthropomorphic mice, rats, bats, and lizards, there are also real non-anthro cats, dogs and horses as well.

Complexity Addiction: Basil, was that ludicrous series of chemical reactions really necessary simply to prove that a piece of paper was soaked in salt water? note Seeing that most chemists would just soak it in silver nitrate solution and leave it in light to see if it darkens... Complexity Addiction it is! Ratigan's infamous death trap puts Basil's chemistry set to shame. It's a Rube Goldberg Device that will trigger several lethal weapons (he couldn't choose which one he wanted, so he picked all of them) via a marble that will roll down a chute as soon as a record player is finished. It also triggers a camera to record the climactic moment.

Shoo Out the Clowns: Ratigan dumps his lackey Fidget (who provided most of the film's comic relief) out of his dirigible, into the Thames River. That's a big clue that things are about to get dark and intense. Cue Villainous Breakdown and Nightmare Fuel inside Big Ben.

Bizarre and Improbable Ballistics
 The Great Mouse Detective / int_fda1a026
comment
Bizarre and Improbable Ballistics: The idea behind the ballistics test is presented fairly well, but the experiment conducted to determine a match has a fatal flaw. Basil holds the ends of the bullets together, and most of the grooves etched into the bullets by the rifling match, except for few. The problem is, if you turn the bullets around in your head so they're side-by-side as opposed to end-to-end, one would be a mirror image of the other! Thus, a cursory glance at them would be all you need to see that they don't match. If Ratigan knew Basil would make such a stupid mistake when comparing the bullets, this could be a case of Fridge Brilliance, as it implies almost impossibly good foresight.

Brick Joke: Right before leaving for Buckingham Palace, Ratigan tells a soon-to-be-dead Basil "Now, you will remember to smile for the camera, won't you?" as he activates his deadly Rube Goldberg contraption which is set to take a picture at the exact moment Basil and Dawson are to die. A few scenes later, after Basil's last-minute ingenuity very narrowly lets them escape the trap, he grabs hold of Dawson, catches Olivia and says "Smile, everyone!" as the picture of the three is successfully taken.

Shown Their Work: At the end of the episode, the newspaper's date says "Monday, June 21, 1897". That day was indeed a Monday. All the mice in the film have four fingers, but Ratigan has five. That's not an accident - unlike mice, rats do have five digits, so despite his denial, Ratigan's own hands betray his nature.
