No matter who comes along, even if he never gets the chance to repeat the role, Barrie Ingham will always be Basil! This Stamp was made to support just that: the original voice of Basil in Disney's The Great Mouse Detective. The photo of Barrie was taken by me on September 30, 2007 during the Creation Entertainment convention. Please favor if you wish to use it! Thanks!

Basil is © Eve Titus/Disney

When I read the original books, it's his voice I hear in my head whenever Basil has dialoge. :D

I definitely agree, along with Val Bettin for Dawson since he's narrating. I also do the same with the Harry Potter books. Before the films came out, I only had the illustrations to imagine and no voices to think of. Now, I've got the actors and their voices in my head when reading the books over again. :D

It was just the illustrations I could picture when reading. They're really nice, but only a b&w vision I could think of as I read.

I'm disappointed that Disney never did more movies about Basil. Doesn't that just figure? The one movie which came with it's own string of sequels lol.
I can just picture it now,
Glen Keene: Hey look! There are other stories about Basil. And even when these run out we could just use regular Sherlock Holmes stories by subsisting the mice.
Executive guys look at each other, raise their eyes brows and then simultaneously go, "Nah!"

Well, I seriously think that "Darkwing Duck" was inspired by GMD only they switched from mice to ducks. Tad Stones is the creator of DW and he's a huge Basil fan. That's why there's a bronze statue of him that Darkwing uses to get to his secret lair. I met Tad at this year's San Diego Comic Con and told him that there are fans of GMD who would love to see more than just the film. He agreed with me. Disney is aware of the fanbase, but they still put a hold on sequels. If not a sequel, I would love to see the Eve Titus books turned into an animated TV mini series with changes to fit the original film. That's something to consider! :D

I noticed that too. I was little and shouting, "Mama look! It's Basil!" and of course you couldn't pause TV back then so poor Ma kept missing it.
Thankfully I have Darkwing on DVD now and she finally got to see what I was spazing about. :)
As for Disney holding out, yeah I'm still stuck with only one and a half seasons of Gargoyles. :(
They don't get it, it's not that we were sick of sequels, it's that we were sick of unnecessary ones! "Happily ever after, the end." is one thing, but "And so began my career with the Great Mouse Detective..." is virtually an open door.
We need to kick out the monkeys in business suits and get an true story-teller back in the drivers seat. I'm still not sure if John Lasenger (I know I misspelled it and I apologize) is going to win this "Save the Traditional form" battle.

My family and I watched Cinderella II: Dreams Come True for the first time a few nights ago. I felt like I was watching cut scenes of a Japanese video game. No offense to that since I love video games, but it felt nothing like the original 1950 classic. The first movie opened with the fairy tale book and had animation that looked like beautiful paintings. The music and songs give me goosebumps as well as tears to my eyes. The sequel did nothing of the sort to me. You're right. The fairy tales end with "And they lived happily ever after." We don't need to see the "ever after." At least with GMD, it ended with the start of new case. They could have made a sequel with that Lady Mouse. If they don't know what villain to use, they could make up one or use Captain Doran from the Eve Titus books. He's Ratigan's lieutenant; based on Colonel Sebastian Moran from the Sherlock Holmes story "The Adventure of the Empty House."

Yeah, the idea came about when I discovered Maurice LaMarche did Basil's voice on Disney's "House of Mouse." No offense to Moe since he's a wonderful and talented actor (and a sweet guy to boot), it just seemed unfair to give the role to someone else when the original would have been more than happy to do it. I was disappointed, and even more upset when Barrie didn't know about it. :(

It often seems as if during the voice sessions of GMD, Barrie did not get the full red carpet treatment at Disney, compared to Vincent Price that is. I'd bet hundreds if Price were alive and well during "House of Mouse," they'd ask him to reprise his role for Ratigan. Very unfair. :(

Yes, thats so unfair! Barrie should have the same rights as Vincent Price had.
