Basil
"Rubbish? You say past updates are rubbish? Bah! Perish the thought!"

The following is a list of all the updates applied to The Game's Afoot!. For every twenty updates, I will move the set into the archives to keep the home page clean of clutter. They will be listed in chronological order and numbered at the bottom.



08-05-2022 | Updated the Professional Artists page for John Quinn (Instagram) with images of his 3D designs of Dr. Dawson and Professor Ratigan. The page is still being repaired since there were a lot of broken links, and not just from the migration from Freewebs to VistaPrint. Other reasons are the outside links go to pages that are no longer available. The majority of the featured artists now have working links, thank goodness!

07-29-2022 | Updated the Trading Cards section of Merchandise 2 with photos of the Basil of Baker Street Topps Digital Trading Card. Images courtesy of Jared Prophet (of IG), it's a great pose of Basil with one difference from the film: he's wearing a yellow cravat instead of teal. As with many sections and many pages, the Trading Cards was in need of repairs of broken links.

07-22-2022 | "I observe that there is a good deal of German music on the program. It is quite introspective, and I want to introspect." In honor of Basil Rathbone's birthday (July 21, 1892), I created a combination video of his original audio recording from "Sherlock Holmes and the Adventures of the Redheaded League" and the scene from The Great Mouse Detective when Basil and Olivia watch him and Dr. Watson. The audio was edited a bit with added dialogue from Voice Actor Laurie Main for Dr. Watson. The clip has been added to the Scenes page of Audio & Video Galleries as The Redheaded League and GMD Scene. Credit for the audio clip goes to the YouTube Channel of Basil Rathbone- Topic (The Redheaded League, Pt. 2) at the 1:03 mark.

07-15-2022 | Remember "A Curious Clue" of Basil and Dr. Dawson by sculpture Jacqueline Perreault Gonzales? Here are two more character favorites that have been created! Updated the WDCC section of Merchandise 2 with images and information on the sculptures of Olivia Flaversham and Professor Ratigan. Handcrafted by artist Todd Beisel, these two have a very limited availability of 40. If you're interested, please check them out at their official pages: Olivia WDCC Caboodles and Ratigan WDCC Caboodles.

07-08-2022 | Updated the Games page with a similar timed quiz: The Great Mouse Detective Characters Quiz (from PurposeGames). It's very much like the first quiz I shared before. The only difference is you click your answer on a tiny blue dot instead of on the character, so that slows your speed down. Good luck!

07-01-2022 | Happy (Early) 36th Anniversary to The Great Mouse Detective! Added to the Fan Art page, I just created a really cool collage using images from animation/music crew, voice actors, posters, b&w press kit photos, home DVD/Video releases, concept art, specials, and the final production cels from the film itself! Collage created thanks to BeFunky.com.

06-24-2022 | Updated the Craftwork section at the Miscellaneous photo page with an adorable design featuring Olivia Flaversham and Toby the Basset Hound from SuspendedAnimationNY of Etsy. It's a flat image you can place upon a surface such as a wall or door to give a look of the characters taken out of the animation world and into the real world!

06-17-2022 | Updated the Apparel section of Merchandise (page 1) with photos and info on Disney Store Disney Dogs Stylised Mug. It features a few of the beloved Disney's famous canines including Toby from The Great Mouse Detective. Available now from shopDisneyUK.

06-10-2022 | Updated the Trailers page with 'The Great Mouse Detective' Original Trailer (Digitally Remastered!) by TheMouseAvenger. This was the original 1986 theatrical trailer for the film that was remastered with clips from the Blu-ray version. A very nice rendition!

06-03-2022 | In honor of Queen Elizabeth II celebrating her Platinum Jubilee, I updated the Cels page with a very rare animation cel of Queen Mousetoria (from Heritage Auctions) along with a screenshot of the actual scene in the film to compare the two. The cel already sold in 2019, so this was just for fun to view both!

05-27-2022 | In honor of Vincent Price's birthday today (May 27, 1911), I updated the Press page with a photo and snippet from a great article shared by Cartoon Research: In Their Own Words: Glen Keane and Vincent Price on Ratigan. You'll have to click the link at the page to view the full article at Cartoon Research site and I highly recommend that you do. It is a wonderful read!

05-20-2022 | Updated the Miscellaneous photo page under the section Easter Eggs with some photos of a Basil Poster at the Kinema in the Woods (in Woodhall Spa, England). A friend saw the poster hidden in a case amongst other movie memorabilia at this theater house from the early 1900's. Original photos were from Trip Advisor.

05-13-2022 | Ack! Not another Friday the 13th! Oh, well, they'll come whether we want them to or not. This week I updated the Trailers page with that one adorable ad for the 1992 VHS release. It's got the kids in it talking about their favorite moments from the movie. It's really cute and a nice addition to the site.

05-06-2022 | Updated the Childrens Books section of Merchandise with a cover and information on Basil, the Great Mouse Detective from Hachette Partworks LTD, part of the "My Little Library" section of their company. It's Issue 90 with 16 pages and the price is £2.99. The book is currently marked as "Coming Soon," so keep checking back at their web site if you're interested in ordering a copy.

04-29-2022 | Added to Music Videos was photo/link to a really cute find: fantastic cheese muffins recipe (by Kendall Bellors). It goes a bit fast on the steps of adding the ingredients, but the fun part is watching it all, the visuals in the background, and enjoying Henry Mancini's added soundtrack.

04-22-2022 | In honor of Earth Day (April 22), here is a lovely photo of Funko Pop Basil at Covent Garden (London) surrounded by a lot of greenery. Credit goes to funkoandlegofan of IG, the photo has been added to the Funko Pop section of Merchandise.

04-15-2022 | This was a very insightful and informative video that is worth viewing. Added to the Reviews page of Audio & Video Galleries, this one is titled The Great Mouse Detective - In Case You Missed It (by ShippersGuideToTheGalaxy). Also updated the Links page with two new sites to check out: Internet Access For Kids: A Parents Guide and since Easter is coming up this Sunday, the 17, I've added The Great Mouse Detective Finding Mickey.com (Easter Eggs info).

04-08-2022 | New pin alert! Updated page 2 of Merchandise in the Pins section with The Great Mouse Detective Basil pin. This pose is from the 2002 DVD release with him holding up a lantern and magnifying glass. Retail price of $9.99 at Disneyland and Walt Disney World parks. Info and photo was found at the Disney Pins Blog site. If interested, check it out!

04-01-2022 | "By the way, Basil, I just love your disguise." Added to Scenes for April Fool's Day is the famous moment when Ratigan Surprises Basil and Dr. Dawson by getting the upper hand and setting a trap for them.

03-25-2022 | Twenty updates archived again! Updated the Drawing page of Audio & Video Galleries with a link to an awesome video titled, GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE! Let's draw him! by Dylan Moore. This was a live drawing stream done on Dylan's Twitch channel that goes for about two hours long. It is incredible poses featuring Basil and Ratigan. If you're like me who enjoys watching others draw amazing pictures, check it out!
