When a little orphan girl falls into the hands of Madame Medusa and sends a message in a bottle, the Rescue Aid Society answers in the form of Bernard (Bob Newhart) and Miss Bianca (Eva Gabor). What can two mice possible do to help the little girl? It turns out they can do a lot.

The movie starts on a reasonably funny note, as the rodent duo hop aboard an albatross to head for the swamps. Albatrosses are incredibly aerodynamic, but they are less then stellar at takeoffs and landings, and Orville the Albatross (Jim Jordan) proves no more adept than his brethren. After a plummet off a building that thrills Miss Bianca and petrifies Bernard, the journey has begun.

In the swamps the duo marshals the other animals to take on Madame Medusa (Geraldine Page), who needs the little orphan Penny (Michelle Stacy) to fit into a hole that leads to a cave. In the cave is located a quantity of jewels, but Madame Medusa is interested only in a huge diamond called the Devil's Eye. The Rescue Society mice and their swampland friends must overcome Madame Medusa and her aids Mr. Snoops (Joe Flynn) and a pair of alligators, who also frequently play babysitter to Penny.

Madame Medusa never realizes that the mice and swamp animals are trying to rescue Penny, which makes this movie more interesting to watch. As happens with many such movies, Madame Medusa's henchmen are cerebrally challenged and the animals are able to plan around them.

The ending of the movie contains a few surprises, and I found the end interesting. This movie also nicely sets up the excellent sequel "The Rescuers Down Under."

The real star of this clever movie is Eva Gabor. Bob Newhart gets top billing, but Eva was perfect for her role and seems to get the best lines in the movie.

This is such a heartwarming story of two mice, (the voices of Bob Newhart and Eva Gabor), to set out to rescue little Penny from Madame Medusa on Devil's Bayou, that's it brings sentiment to my eyes when I think of it.

There's wonderful music, and the ensemble cast of the folks in the Bayou is terrific. Then of course there are the two crocodiles who are just as mean and evil as Madame Medusa, and all for what - the Diamond - and Medusa is going to never let Penny see her little Teddy again if she doesn't produce it.

This is classic melodrama for children, although not too heavy handed. It's a nice movie, but maybe a little too intense for the real small kids.

Highly recommended!!!

In the grand Disney library of classics there are a few that you could consider sweet and simply sweet, a few of those would be Disney films that easily bring a tear to your eyes, like Dumbo, Bambi, The Fox and the Hound and this timeless Disney adventure, The Rescuers. There's something so sweet surrounding the adventurous tale of a little orphan girl, being forced into a dangerous underground cave by an evil woman, you get to feel for this character in every angle and with that love the entire film more and more each time to watch it. I mentioned this being a sweet and charming film mainly because of the character of Penny, the little orphan but certain scenes jump out as most charming, one of them takes place in Penny's home, Morningside Orphanage where she shares her feelings and emotions with the local cat, Rufus, crying because she longs for the love of a mother and father. Another one happens while Penny is lonely and feeling hopeless, praying for help, the whole scene in her bedroom is absolutely beautiful, surrounded by lovely music and a sad and blue atmosphere. All of these things make Penny not only one of the most well developed Disney children in their history but also make her deserve everything she gains at the end of the film, which is happiness.

Opposite to Penny and the sweet animals in the film is the main villainess, Madame Medusa.

The first time I saw this movie I fell in love with it, it bacme my favorite Disney film of all time. The two main characters Bernard & Bionca were the most likable of all Disney characters & Madam Medusa though not the most evil Disney villin was pretty scary. The story starts with the kidnapping of young orphaned Penny who was taken straight out of a public orphanege. When the authorites give up on her search the Rescue-Aid Society which is run entirely by rodents decide to send two agents to find her pretty Bionca volunteers at once and her chosen parter is Bernard basicly the custodian for the Rescue-Aid Society.
The two find that Madam Medusa, a pawn shop owner kidnapped the girl and has hidden her in her boat which is located in a desserted swamp. The two mice fly to the swamp on a gull were they find a young Penny trying escape the evil Medusa put is caught by Medusa's pet crocadiles. Bernard & Miss Bionca befriend a group of rodents who help the mice get on board the boat. There they over-hear that Medusa kidnapped Penny so that she could get her hands on the largest un-cut diamond in the world, the Devil's Eye, and that Penny is the only one who can fit in the cave. When the two help Penny get the diamond they call upon their rodent friends to help them catch & turn Medusa over to the police.
The movie was followed by a sequel in 1990 "The Rescuers Down Under" which was probally the only ever decent Disney sequel.
