yet another name-that-movie question

help my friend recall the name of an animated movie, made no later than the late '80s, which had in it a mouse with wheels instead of hind legs.

That is the full extent of what she remembers, though any requests for clarification shall be dutifully passed along. A long shot, I know, but any leads would be great!

Best answer: Is it the mouse from the Muppet movie "The Christmas Toy"?

That rings a bell with The Mouse and His Child by Russell Hoban, which I know was made into a movie at some point.

Possibly The Great Mouse Detective, which is sort of steampunk-ish and features several clockwork mice that I think rolled on wheels. She could also check out An American Tale or The Secret of NIMH. All made in the 80s.

*Tail, not Tale.
