Disney Villain Countdown: 20/40
**Spoiler Alert! Some villains are revealed in plot twists, so if you haven't seen all the movies...**
Ratigan COULD be scarier, he is essentially a mob boss/ Holmesian villain, but Disney tended to err more on the amusing side with Ratigan. I can't fault them, it helps raise his other scores, but this category is not his highest. He is, after all, just a rat.
It's amusing how they morphed a rat into a pinstriped mafioso. Look at that 5'oclock shadow, too. Those eyebrows. The massive shoulders and tiny hips. Glorious pinstripe suit. Dapper gloves. He's one sassy. dude.
Wit & Quotability
High scores for Ratigan! When starting this project, I hadn't watched GMD since I was a little kid. I was astonished by how much more Ratigan had to offer than I'd previously given him credit for, particularly when his wisdom is wondrously vocalized by Vincent Price.
Vincent. Price. Nuff Said. If you haven't given this movie a chance, it's time you did. There's a line in the song talking about the Widows and Orphans he has drowned. Seriously.
Sure, Ratigan has minions, but they all walk that line between amusing and annoying, too frequently dipping into annoying zone. Fidget is remarkably Creeper (Black Cauldron) esque. It's a pretty neutral score.
Far and away Ratigan's highest score. Vincent Price? Check. Bombastic villain gloating? Check. Adoring chorus line? Check. The World's Greatest Criminal Mind has it all.
