NOTES: When this film was originally released its title was "The Great Mouse Detective." When Disney re-released it years later they gave it the title of "The Adventures of the Great Mouse Detective." When the film was released on video a few months later, the title on the box was back to "The Great Mouse Detective" but the title on the film itself read "The Adventures of the Great Mouse Detective."
The box that the white girl mouse cries on is "Gaston's Liver Pills", a reference to the father of one of the artists.
In the German version of the movie Fidget's name is "Greifer," but in the end credits his name is misspelled. It reads "Griefer."
The Great Mouse Detective is the first animated film to use computer graphics.
Dumbo can be seen as a little toy blowing bubbles in the toy shoppe.
The green lizard in Ratigan's gang
of roughs is Bill the Lizard from Alice
