I like frozen and other recent hits but nothing beats the magic of the old hand drawn Disney classics, The rescuers was never Disney’s biggest hit but for me it had the most heart.
This is a wonderful scene where Penny gets some kind words from old Rufus the cat.
If you have kids that haven’t seen this I suggest you watch this over the holidays!
The Rescuers is a 1977 American animated adventure film produced by Walt Disney Productions and first released on June 22, 1977 by Buena Vista Distribution. The 23rd film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, the film is about the Rescue Aid Society, an international mouse organization headquartered in New York and shadowing the United Nations, dedicated to helping abduction victims around the world at large. Two of these mice, jittery janitor Bernard (Bob Newhart) and his co-agent, the elegant Miss Bianca (Eva Gabor), set out to rescue Penny (Michelle Stacy), an orphan girl being held prisoner in the Devil’s Bayou by treasure huntress Madame Medusa (Geraldine Page).
The film is based on a series of books by Margery Sharp, most notably The Rescuers and Miss Bianca. Due to the film’s success, a sequel entitled The Rescuers Down Under was released in 1990.
