In this cartoon set in 1897, Basil, the famous mouse private detective is solicited by Olivia Flaversham whose father, a famous inventor, is kidnapped on his birthday by a bat. Initially uninterested in the investigation, Basil realizes that the bat is an underling of Professor Ratigan, a cruel but highly intelligent rat who rules the underworld and wants to overthrow the mouse queen.
