At a time when both Disney and animation were in periods of difficult transition, a throwback to basics brought about this beloved Disney jewel. Bob Newhart and Eva Gabor provide the voices for Bernard and Bianca, a pair of mice sent to rescue a kidnapped little girl from a greedy thief. Could two little mice stand up against the terrible Madam Medusa? The great Geraldine Page gives a fabulously campy performance as the villainess. The success of this film propelled Disney to make its first full length sequel (now an all too common practice), The Rescuers Down Under. A must for the whole family.
