superb.........................By williamsgwynfa (627 reviews) from gwaenysgor , 30 May 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]this animated disney film is super. my daughter Bethany loved it. 'The Rescuers' tells the story of a little orphaned girl named Penny (voiced by Michelle Stacy).
The little girl had been kidnapped, and taken away into a dark, gloomy riverboat in Devil's Bayou, in an uncharted island.
The girl sends out messages in bottles, one of which arrives in New York City, at the Rescue Aid Society in the basement of the United Nations building.
The Rescue Aid Society is a mouse-run organization imitating the United Nations which sends out help for anyone in need, human, mouse or cat.
After reading the heartfelt note inside the bottle, Hungary delegate Miss Bianca (voiced by Eva Gabor) volunteers to take on the mission, and with the condition that she will take along a male companion, Mr. Chairman (voiced by Bernard Fox) agrees to let her go.
Miss Bianca chooses the shy janitor mouse Bernard (voiced by Bob Newhart), to go with her, on the mission to rescue Penny.
On their way, the two mice visit Morningside Orphanage, and meet an old cat named Rufus, who sends them on the trail of someone named Madame Medusa (voiced by Geraldine Page).
Madame Medusa works at a pawn shop, which the two mice visit, and when the wicked woman receives a call from her partner Mr. Snoops (voiced by Joe Flynn), Miss Bianca and Bernard discover that she is indeed responsible for the disappearance of Penny, and that she is looking for a great big diamond.
Miss Bianca and Bernard must race to Devil's Bayou, with the help of Orville the albatross, Ellie Mae and Luke, the muskrats and Evinrude, a dragonfly as well as other bayou animals, to meet and face the wicked Madame Medusa and her two ferocious alligators, Brutus and Nero and bring Penny safely home.
Before doing that however, Penny, Miss Bianca and Bernard will have to survive underground inside a horrid pirate's cave where they must find the Devil's Eye, the world's largest diamond, before the tide rises drowning them all.
Will they succeed.... watch the film to find out !!!!!!!!!

Marvellous MiceBy a customer , 03 Aug 2013Wonderful film. Would reccomend it to anyone. Really enjoyed. Its about a little girl who needs rescuing and is saved by two courageous mice with help from friends. Lovel storyline of good prevails bad and team work wins out in the end and that if you have faith you can accomplish anything.
lovely filmBy a customer , 14 Jul 2013A lovely WALT DISNEY film it is fab i look forward to watching the second film the rescuers down under!!
Super movieBy crazyaboutmovies (2 reviews) , 17 Jun 2013Never get tired of seeing good triumph evil. This movie has captured that sentiment beautifully when two little mice from 'Rescue Aid Society' rescue a little orphan girl, Penny, from the evil clutches of 'Auntie Medusa.' This movie is from a time when animation was classic and was not drowned in special effects and computerised wizardry.
The RescuersBy a customer , 06 Jun 2013I remember this film from when I was a child! It's completely adorable. I love Eva Gabor as Bianca, loved her in Aristocats as Duchess as well. I still know the words to the Rescue Aid Society song ! Definitely one for younger audiences, even though it is slightly dark and gothic in some points. SNOOOOPSSSSS, YOU'RE TOO SOFT.
Very Solid Disney animationBy runawayindy (3 reviews) from Chelmsford , 29 Nov 2011The 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
