Walt Disney The Great Mouse Detective Original Production Animation Cel

Eve Titus wrote a series of stories about Basil of Baker Street; a mouse that lived next door to Sherlock Holmes and who shared many of his skills and traits. Walt Disney Studios adapted the Titus stories into a wonderful feature film that was still able to maintain the Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes characters, even though they were transformed into a mouse world. The famed actor Vincent Price was the voice of the film's villain, Ratigan; and the film has a very strong fan following. 

Michael Gabriel supervised the animation of the scene in which these cels were used. Mr. Gabriel first animated for Disney on "The Fox and the Hound," 1981 and continued his role as animation supervisor into the 21st century. He also co-directed "The Rescuers Down Under," 1990, "Pocahontas," 1995, and directed the 2004 short film "Lorenzo."

These cels appear in a scene that occurs in the home of Sherlock Holmes, located directly above that of Basil of Baker Street. It is here that the mouse detective takes Olivia Flaversham and Dr. David Q. Dawson to recruit Toby, Sherlock's basset hound who will track Hiram Flaversham to the toy shop. Toby takes an instant dislike to Dr. Dawson, and Basil steps in and placing his hands on Toby's nose says, "Now, Toby, stop that! Cease! Desist!"
