The original 1992 video release had the "Distributed by Buena Vista" title card placed right before the film started (with a thundering sound), it was then removed and placed at the end of the film for the 1999 video release. Finally, it was removed completely from the 2003 DVD release which replaced it with an opening Walt Disney Pictures logo which also included the "thunder" sound. See more »
One of Walt Disney's finest animated films, this concerns two mice named Bernard & Bianca, who belong to the Rescue Aid Society, that operates out of the basement of the United Nations building in New York. There is a little girl named Penny being held captive by an evil woman named Madame Medusa and her henchman Mr. Snoops, who need her to lead them to a priceless jewel in the Devil's Bayou swamp, where she is being held on a riverboat. The mice fly atop Orville the Albatross to rescue her, and defeat the villains. Surprisingly touching and thrilling film done with care and imagination, with wonderful songs. To be enjoyed by both children and adults alike.
