"Best one till The Lion King"
5 stars

Is this movie still in print? I remember seeing it when was about seven.

But The Little Mermaid came out after THe Great Mouse Detective, and that's NEVER been re-released.

I cried. I was young, but the end made me cry.

I want it back! I want it back! I want it back! I want it back!
--editor's note: it goes on like for 12 pages--

Bring me the head of Eisner! Or whatever his name is!
