THE GREAT MOUSE DETECTIVE: DATING THE DISNEY FILM

SECOND EDITION
Written by Diane N. Tran


Introduction:

"The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes" (HOUN).

Entering in the world of the Great Mouse Detective, I have often wondered about historically dating the events in this Disney film, which I fondly call as the Flaversham case, with the use of pure logical deduction, just like Sherlock Holmes, to learn the truth from the clues the film gives us.


One Day and Two Nights:

With a dark, overcast sky, the streets have obvious signs of recent rain and it downpours by the climax of the film, which makes dividing day and night hours difficult, but not impossible.  The film's main events span about two nights.  Consider the facts addressed:
  • Flaversham toyshop was closed for the night and Olivia's birthday was that evening:  "You know, Daddy, this is my very best birthday!"
  • Plus, Dr. Dawson, after the beginning credits, introduces the audience with "the eve of our good Queen's Diamond Jubilee."
  • In Ratigan's lair, where Hiram Flaversham was taken prisoner, the Napoleon of Crime states that Flaversham must have everything done "by tomorrow evening," which verifies that this was the night before the Jubilee, and he repeats this fact to the group of henchmen with a newspaper:  "Tomorrow evening, our beloved monarch celebrates her Diamond Jubilee."
Therefore, Hiram Flaversham's kidnapping, Olivia's meeting with Dawson, their meeting with Basil, Ratigan's song number ("The World's Greatest Criminal Mind"), and execution of the drunken Bartholomew were all done in one night.

The second is the day and/or night of the Diamond Jubilee:
  • After Fidget returned to the lair, with all the "shopping list" items, including Olivia herself, Ratigan threatens that Flaversham's project had to "be ready tonight!"
Consequently, we can deduce that Toby's hounding search for the peg-legged Fidget, the daring chase at the toy shoppe, and Olivia's kidnapping occurred during the daytime hours.  Although this may be daytime, on the day of the Diamond Jubilee, the streets are empty — because all the humans are celebrating their Queen Victoria's Jubilee Celebration, and vice versa for the mice.  Therefore, the toy shoppe must be located some distance away from Westminster, where Buckingham Palace is located.  They were probably all the way on the other side of London!

The scene of Basil's deductions of Fidget's "shopping list" is placed in-between Ratigan's threat to Flaversham's project for "tonight" and the detective's clandestine visit to the Rat Trap Saloon, all done some hours before the Diamond Jubilee started, hence we can reason that this scene happened around the afternoon or early evening, since it had to take some time to slip into disguises and lay out a plan.

Furthermore, there are the events that happened during the evening of the Diamond Jubilee.  The sequence is fast-paced, so try to keep up:
  • Basil and Dawson spend seven minutes into the Rat Trap Saloon, with song sequence and bar fight, which is only a few small hours before the Diamond Jubilee begins.
  • The "overkill" trap, which Ratigan could not sit and watch since Basil was "fifteen minutes late," and he had "an important engagement at Buckingham Palace."
  • Queen Moustoria is kidnapped and replaced with a robot replica.
  • Basil escapes the "overkill" trap and rushes to save the Queen.
  • Ratigan's ingenious plan fails when the robot goes haywire.
  • The balloon chase zooms across the London sky, the climax inside and outside Big Ben, and the clock rings nine o'clock in the evening.
  • Ratigan falls off the Clock Tower of the Palace of Westminster.
All of this occurred on the second night.


Exact Dating:

All the events explained above had taken place in two nights, but what is the exact date precisely?  At the beginning of the film, a caption addresses "London 1897," yet what day of 1897?  Let us confirm the facts:
  • The day before the Jubilee was Olivia's birthday.
  • Buckingham Palace was dressed for the occasion in the mouse-world, with patriotic banners, for Queen Moustoria's Diamond Jubilee.  (Please note that, in the human-world, the Palace was dressed for Queen Victoria's own Diamond Jubilee that same night).
Princess Alexandrina Victoria Regina, of the House of Hanover, (1819-1901) was pronounced Queen of all England on 20 June 1837, therefore the date of her Diamond Jubilee, celebrating her sixty years as regent, was on 20 June 1897 (on Sunday).  By simple mathematics, Olivia Flaversham's birthday was on the 19th (on Saturday).


Honouring Heroes:

After of the rescue of the Queen and the death of Professor Ratigan, there is a passage of time:  The film returns back to Baker Street to a newspaper article in the Illustrated London Mouse of the film's heroes being "thanked by the Queen herself," waving the royal sceptre above them.  The newspaper was dated "Monday, 21 June 1897," under the headline "Queen Praises Detective Basil, Medal to be Given."

The illustration shows Basil's clean clothes (thus, no tears or rips) and Dawson's usual dress (thus, no pirate costume).  Sometime, between these events, Basil and Dawson changed their clothes, representing a passage of time.  In addition, Basil needs to tend to his injuries from his harrowing "ass-kicking" and the Queen must take some rest to recover from her own ordeal of being kidnapped and nearly fed to a cat.

Audiences with the Queen are usually conducted during the afternoon or the evening.  It should be emphasised that the headline on the clipping said that the Queen "praises" the detective and that "medals [are planned] to be given," which means the event in the newspaper was last-minute, taking place after Big Ben (with a little extra time for a wardrobe change), on the (late) evening of the 20th, for saving her life — and, in turn, of all Mousedom!  One must consider Victorian London's media speed, how long does it take for the newspapers to print and circulate their editions about this ceremony?  At the time, most newspapers regularly had early, morning, late morning, afternoon, evening, and late evening editions:  The reporters have to write the article; the editor proof-reads and approves it; scriveners have to typeset all the little engraved letters into words and sentences, where they have to be placed in a machine, which will feed paper, ink-print them, then workers tie them into stacks, then they are circulated on by paperboys on busy street corners.  However, the "human-world" Illustrated London News, which first appeared in 14 May 1842, was magazine (not a true newspaper) that was published weekly until 1971.  The magazine printed special Diamond Jubliee issues on the 21st (early edition) and 22nd (formal edition) of June.  It seems that Basil bought the former.

Also, the "medals to be given" are scheduled, obviously, for a latter date.  Royalty does not keep of stack of medals tucked away!  An honourary celebration takes time:  The honoured medals must be made and engraved before its presentation; invitations must be sent to acquire an audience; rooms must be decorated; pomp and circumstances must be planned; and security must be arranged.  However, it is very unlikely for Basil to accept it!  Sherlock Holmes, after his brilliant work in recovering "the Bruce-Partington Plans," was given an audience at Buckingham Palace (or Windsor Castle) with Queen Victoria, where she presented him an emerald tie-pin that he wore quite conspicuously.  In fact, throughout his entire career, Holmes was never awarded any British honours, in fact he refused his name on the Honours List for knighthood.  However, he does accept foreign honours, notably France's illustrious Légion d'honneur, but accepts none from his home country.  (This may be due to the fact that his brother Mycroft has never received — or simply does not care to receive — "honour nor title" from the British Empire, despite his important, if mysterious, position in its government.)  We can assume, therefore, that Basil would not accept a medal — but he probably would love to get his hands on that emerald pin!


Good-Byes:

A small audience admires this clipping at Baker Street, and Olivia and his father say their bittersweet good-byes to the detective before they are "late to catch our train."  What day was this scene?  The exact date of this scene leaves some room for imagination.  The weather is still overcast; again, it is difficult to acknowledge the time of day.  Dawson proudly recalls the ceremony rather vividly, commenting that is was "very thrilling," suggesting that the occasion was recent.

It can be suggested, but not confirmed, that the scene was during the day and/or night of 23rd June, where Basil has just framed the article from the morning paper, as the Flavershams were visiting — apparently their last visit.  Olivia and her father, at the beginning of the film, lived in London but, at the very end, they needed to catch a train.  But why?  The Flaversham toyshop must not have been far to walk, as Olivia walked to Baker Street (and got lost) in the rain.  Of course, there are a few possibilities:
  • The most likely answer is that the Flavershams have decided to move out of London out of safety.  We assume Ratigan is dead — a 180-foot drop from the clock face would kill a human, let alone a rat — and yet, we do not (officially) know if Ratigan is truly dead.
  • Or the Flavershams decided to take a holiday.
I would suggest the former as the most likely explanation.  Olivia's farewell is potent and clearly suggests she'll be going away for a long time, possibly never to see him again. Therefore, the Flavershams are moving away (most likely) to Scotland.

Also, between the night of the 20th and the morning of the 21st, where did Dawson sleep?  He never responded to the newspaper advertisements for let rooms.  Most likely, Dawson spent the night at the spare room at Baker Street (which is likely some seventeen steps above the sitting room, as noted in the Sacred Writings).  After the Flavershams leave, one bittersweet good-bye comes a brand-new beginning.  Dawson readies "to find my own living quarters," instead the occasion is seals a partnership between Basil and Dawson — and finds a home at Baker Street!


Events:

Here is a simple outline of the events of the film:
    Saturday, 19 June 1897 (night):
    • Olivia Flaversham's birthday.
    • Hiram Flaversham is kidnapped.
    • Olivia meets Dawson; Olivia and Dawson meet Basil.
    • Ratigan sings "The World's Greatest Criminal Mind."
    • A drunken Bartholomew is executed by the cat, Felicia.
    Sunday, 20 June 1897 (day):
    • After Olivia tells her story, Basil fetches the dog, Toby.
    • Toby's searches for the peg-legged bat, Fidget.
    • Fidget steals tools, gears, and uniforms at a toy shoppe.
    • After the daring chase in the toy shoppe, Fidget kidnaps Olivia.
    • Fidget returns to Ratigan's lair with supplies.
    • The Flavershams' brief family reunion.
    • Fidget is nearly eaten by Felicia.
    Sunday, 20 June 1897 (night):
    • Basil examines Fidget's "shopping list."
    • Basil and Dawson enter the Rat Trap Saloon, with "Let Me Be Good to You" song and bar fight.
    • Basil and Dawson are duped, captured, and placed in the "overkill" trap.
    • Queen Moustoria is kidnapped and replaced.
    • Basil and Dawson escape the "overkill" trap and rush to Buckingham Palace to save the Queen.
    • Ratigan's plan is ruined.
    • Balloon chase takes place, with the final confrontation at Big Ben.
    • Ratigan is defeated and falls 180 feet off the Clock Tower.
    • Basil and Dawson receive an audience with the Queen.
    Monday, 21 June 1897 (day/night):
    • The magazine, The Illustrated London Mouse (News), publishes an article about Basil and Dawson's ceremony, which Basil tacks on the mantelpiece over the fireplace of Baker Street.
    • The Flavershams say farewell and catch their train.
    • The mysterious lady from Hampstead calls for help.
    • Basil and Dawson seal their partnership.

Conclusion:

One may consider it as "elementary" when the facts are addressed in clear order, yet I think Holmes said it better:

"The ideal reasoner would, when he has once been shown a single fact in all its bearing, deduce from it not only all the chain of events, which led up to it, but also all the results which would follow from it" (FIVE).
"We've done it, old fellow...!"

I re-wrote "Dating the Film" essay for the new GMD website. This was original published in 2000. Can you believe this essay is seven years old?! And can you believe that Olivia's birthday is in a few days? This is now the new-and-approved 2008 edition. Tell me what you think?

Many thank-yous to ~skye-chan for challenging it (which resulted in me re-writing it in response) and *MouseAvenger for proofreading it.

Very well thought-out, but I think the toy shop can only have taken place early in the evening. For the very obvious reason that, well, it was night.

It's definitely my favourite Disney film. However, Disney doesn't appreciate this film at all and they should. It got them out of debt after the failure of Black Cauldron. Great Mouse Detective remains Disney's most unappreciated film. It's not part of the "Disney Classic Collection" or "Disney Masterpiece Collection" or "Gold", "Silver", or "Platinum". They always overlook the film, hence why I recreated a website on the film that read "Disney's Underappreciated Film".

Ain't that unfortunate! Why would Disney, with all it's spectacular tastes in the creative, take such a wondeful movie like Great Mouse Detective; a movie with a great plot with twists that keep you on your toes, well-developed characters that people can relate to, fluid life-like animation, memorable music, and just about everything else that makes a truly good movie; and NOT appreciate it?! I mean, seriously...GMD is definitly among Disney's Top 5 best movies of all time! Why doesn't anyone at Disney see that?

It really boils down to money, unfortunately. That's why qualifies a film as "successful" or as their "best." Great Mouse Detective was the precursor to the Disney Renaissance, sandwiched between Black Cauldron, which nearly killed Disney, and Oliver and Company, considered mediocre film in itself. GMD is actually one of the quickest made animated features by Disney -- four years of pre-production (which is why the plot is so incredible strong and the characters were immensely thought out) and only one year of production. You can definitely see how rushed the film was in the saloon scene with most of the partons are part of the background, unmoving, except for the cigar smoke. However, without GMD, you wouldn't have Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, and Princess and the Frog.

Ut, oh! Hang on, I think I made a mistake, or parts of the film just don't add up. I've been thrown off the scent...so to speak! I did this same thing, but I got it differently elsewhere and I can see where I got it wrong, yet confused in that area! Hear me out real quick. ;p My poor brain may have been set to auto pilot in some scenes, so when it came to officially trying to figure out the full duration of the film, I came up with three days, two nights, or the same amount from Saturday night, Sunday and then Monday night.

OK, this is how I figured, I know it's wrong, but listen anyway. The film began with Dawson's narration, "It was the Eve of our good Queen's Diamond Jubliee..." So, I was like, OK, that is probably Saturday, June 19, or Olivia's birthday celebrated. Now, I don't know, I was watching closely to things like the time of day (or night), and whenever the camera panned to Basil's fireplace mantel, the clock said 7 p.m. So, I thought, right, same night still. I didn't pay attention to Ratigan's line to Flaversham of "We will have our device ready by tomorrow evening, won't we?" however, I did remember the big headline he flashed with the newspaper! Go figure!

Where I got lost: Where it cuts from Basil's flat to Ratigan's song, Bartholomew dying, Fidget going out to go shopping, and then cutting back to Basil's flat. It's supposed to be the next day? But what time? It's still dark out when they go with Toby to the toy shop, or I couldn't tell it was the daytime hours! Right there, I assumed it was still Saturday because of how fast it cut back to Basil talking about Ratigan and the darkness outside. I didn't think it would be a new day! Did anyone sleep? Could Olivia actually sleep knowing her father is out there somewhere? And where did she sleep, one of the spare rooms of Baker Street?

And here's a plot hole: Fidget appears at Basil's window. Why would he go there instead of the toy shop like Ratigan told him to? The only way he would have known to go to Basil's flat is to follow Olivia the same night (Saturday) after kidnapping her father. So, that would mean he would have brought extra help. Having someone take Hiram to Ratigan while Fidget pursues Olivia (now with Dawson) to Basil's flat. That's if he caught her walking with Dawson to Baker Street. But then again, that doesn't add up correctly because Fidget's appearance at the window is after Ratigan's scene and the supposed next day (Sunday!).

That's my error there, not to think of those rapid cut scenes as two days. Without thinking this, I continued their search at the toy shop by 8 p.m. and then the whole kidnapping, chemistry testing, Rat Trap scene, bar dancing, and then to the "overkill" rat trap all happening between 8 and 9! And I'm like, goodness, there's just not enough time! Because after the "overkill" rat trap escape, Basil, Dawson and Olivia rush to Buckingham Palace, rescue the Queen and then lose Olivia to start the balloon chase and end at Big Ben. By the way, the clock strikes 10 p.m. when Ratigan falls to his death, not 9. Oh, you got it fixed. Skip that part. ^^;

So, I was still thinking the majority of the film took place all in one evening (Saturday), but then arguing that there wouldn't be enough time if it all started at 7 p.m. and ended by 10. So, where I went wrong was at the point when Olivia meets Basil, cuts to Ratigan's scene and song, sends Fidget out to do the shopping, cut to NEXT DAY, and go from there! I blame the darkness, plot hole, and time!

BUT!!!! Girl, I love you so much! Due to internet browsing for all this research, I found something that made me squee like an absolute fangirl! Er, in case you didn't know this, I sure didn't! There was a costumed Basil and Ratigan that used to roam around Disneyland in the 80's!!!! When I was trying to find something, up comes this picture of the two and I gasped like crazy! You could actually :glomp: Basil or Ratigan for real, in person!! Ahhh! And I was there in 1986, too! Never saw either of them in the park! :cries: Do you want to see the picture? It's at Disboards, a forum I used to go to a lot to report my Disneyland day trips. Wow, if I still have an active account, I should see if I can find more pictures of them! :aww:

Jeremy is perhaps my favourite Holmes as well. Vasili Livanov, the Russian Holmes, has been challenging his spot at number one though! You should see Livanov's version of "Scandal of Bohemia"; it's so beautiful! I love those the world slows down (with violins) whenever Irene Adler walks into his view.

That's a good essay. :) It's very well-written and thought. I do have one question though, particularly about the line where you say "Perhaps it is due to minor slip-ups, or naïve needs in the immaterial, or simple inexperience to learn the logic of the obvious," regarding things that are overlooked Is it really just inexperience/naïvete? I personally don't think so. I think most people know that it has been more than one day in the film regarding the Diamond Jubilee and events. Just the parts where Ratigan says at one point that everything "must be ready by tomorrow evening" and at another point "it must be ready tonight" are enough to indicate that, without the use of deduction.

Difficult on where to start, but I certainley enjoyed the read and the thorough analysis. Some college professors had better give high appraisal for this writ, because I do. Was impressed how the facts were carefully gone over, bit by bit, in tying with the dates and times involved, which also helped to broaden one's mind on the film itself (now we can celebrate dear little Olivia's birthday better, among other things.) I'll have to speak more of it later, but this was very enjoyable. :)
