The story and planning took four years, but the actual animation was completed in only a year. This remarkably short production span was possible due to new efficiencies in the production process (such as video tests and computer-assisted layouts and graphics), and an increased emphasis on story development prior to the start of production.
All of the moving clock gears were created in a computer "room" and then the hand drawn characters were added, making this the first Disney film with computer animated elements.
125 artists were involved in making the film.
When Disney re-released the movie in 1992, they gave it the title of "The Adventures of the Great Mouse Detective". When the film was released on video, the title on the box was back to "The Great Mouse Detective", but the title card in the film itself reads "The Adventures of the Great Mouse Detective".
