Overview

Two fantasy novels by Margery Sharp were combined for in the Disney animated feature The Rescuers. The title characters are a pair of mice, Bernard and Miss Bianca. A little girl named Penny has been kidnapped by Miss Medusa. When the human law enforcement officials fail to locate the child, Bernard and Miss Bianca take over with the help of several colorful animal companions. In classic Disney tradition, the comedy element is offset by moments of genuine terror. Voices are provided by Bob Newhart Bernard, Eva Gabor Miss Bianca, Geraldine Page Madame Medusa, Jim "Fibber McGee" Jordan, John McIntire, George "Goober" Lindsay, Joe Flynn who died in 1974, not long into the four-year production, and a host of others. It scored at the box office, more than compensating for the $8 million investment and the half-decade of work it took to complete the film. In fact, The Rescuers remains one of the most popular of the Disney cartoon films produced after the death of Uncle Walt. A heavily-computerized sequel, The Rescuers Down Under, appeared in 1990.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
A big success in its initial release, The Rescuers is one of the lesser animated efforts from the estimable Disney studio, but is still solid family entertainment. The Rescuers continued the trend begun by The Jungle Book of using "name" players to provide personality voices, and does so to good effect. Bob Newhart makes Bernard's mild, unassuming manner and understandable timidity both likeable and endearing, and Eva Gabor's Bianca is something like the cartoon equivalent of a Hitchcock heroine (although with more warmth and less ice). Geraldine Page has the scene-stealing villainess role of Madame Medusa, and she makes the most of it, tearing up the screen with maniacal glee and being genuinely disturbing at times. Indeed, both Medusa and the situation in which the young heroine finds herself may be a little upsetting to some children. Visually, the picture is notable for its very dark, atmospheric swamp and for a good use of muted colors. The sketchbook paintings that accompany the credits are a nice, unusual touch, and the animation of the over-the-top Medusa, as well as her crocodile "hench-pets," deserves kudos. The film features a slim and rather perfunctory song score, although "Someone's Waiting for You" has become a popular standard. The Rescuers marked the last feature film for five of Disney's legendary "Nine Old Men."

    A Great Animated Classic

    This is one of my favorite Disney movies. The music and animation are very memorable and the story is very enjoyable. It features two mice who are responding to a letter by a kidnapped orphan who is being held by the greedy and cruel Madame Medusa in order to find the Devil's Eye Diamond. Along the way you meet other animals who help Bernard and Bianca save Penny from Madame Medusa so that she can return to the orphanage to fullfill her dreams of being adopted. The movie is very heartwarming and is one of Disney's great, though lesser known classics that people of all ages would enjoy.
