The Rescuers (1977)

rescuers“Sure wish we’d taken the train! ” – Bernard

Number of Times Seen – a few times (video, cable and 15 Apr 2014)

Brief Synopsis – Two mice who are part of an organization that helps troubled kids around the world must save a young orphan girl who has been kidnapped by a ruthless woman in order to find a valuable diamond.

My Take on it – 1977 was 10+ years after Walt Disney passed away and Disney animated studio was struggling a bit, but still managed to have a few successful movies since Walt’s passing.

This movie has a very good story using cute creatures that know how to go and save the day despite their size.

As a kid, I really enjoyed this movie and was surprised that I still enjoyed it now as an adult.

The characters are all nicely developed for an animated movie and having Ava Gabor and Bob Newhart voicing the heroes and Geraldine Page voicing the villain was definitely the correct choices.

Unfortunately, this was Disney’s last successful film until The Little Mermaid (1989) came out 12 years later eventhough you can’t say they didn’t try. 😦

Bottom Line – The last Disney animated film to be good and successful until The Little Mermaid (1989) came out 12 years later. Good story, good characters, good voice cast. Recommended!

Rating – Globe Worthy
