Searching for clues at her home at Morningside Orphanage in New York City, the two mice discover that the girl has been kidnapped by the evil pawn shop owner Madame Medusa and her companion Mr. Snoops. On the back of Orville the albatross, Miss Bianca and Bernard travel to the terrifyingly gloomy Devil's Bayou where they learn the shocking truth: the innocent young girl is being forced down into a dangerous, dark underground pirate's cave where she must find the Devil's Eye, the world's largest diamond and Madame Medusa's greatest obsession.

The film was considered by Walt Disney's marketing department to represent the decade of the '70s in their prestigious Diamond Edition line introduced in 2009. However, in the winter of 2012, it was announced that it would instead be released as a "2-Movie Collection" commemorating its 35th Anniversary, and packaged along with its 1990 sequel. See more »
At the meeting of the Rescue Aid Society we see a delegate from Austria. Not long after we see another delegate from Vienna. Vienna of course is the capital of Austria. If the Rescue Aid Society is like the United Nations then all delegates should represent nations not cities. More importantly even if cities were represented it would make no sense to have two delegates from the same country. See more »
THE RESCUERS, in my opinion, is a pure Disney blockbuster. It made me feel all warm and tingly when Bernard (voice of Bob Newhart) and Bianca (voice of Eva Gabor) set out on their mission to rescue Penny (voice of Michelle Stacy). If you ask me, Medusa's (voice of Geraldine Page) clothing was nice, but her hair was absolutely atrocious. To me, it really did look like snakes. That made it obvious as to why her name was Medusa. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that everyone was perfectly cast, the direction was flawless, and Disney has scored a big hit. In conclusion, I highly recommend this pure Disney blockbuster to everyone who hasn't seen it. I guarantee you you'll enjoy it.
