    I love the concept and the voice acting. That's about it. Hoping they do another, maybe updated third entry. The sequel is far better.

    Gators, Pirate treasure, Swampmobile, Evinrude!

    The animation looks very rough but that also gives it some charm. I've never seen "The Rescuers Down Under" so I thought to revisit this and make it a double feature. The voice talents here are great (Pat Buttram always makes my day).

    Though I have very vivid memories of most Disney films I watched as a kid, I almost completely forgot about this one save for the image of that adorable dragonfly with the floppy tongue.

    Not sure why The Rescuers isn't considered a stone-cold Disney classic. The characters are quirky, their animations expressive. The world is full of color, variety and detail while unafraid to go to some dark, gritty places. I'll admit there's an unfinished quality to some of it,…

    After having watched the sequel, younger me wanted to see the original movie. I remember being underwhelmed; all I could recall afterwards was that crocodiles were involved. Watching again as an adult, I can appreciate this understated film better: it's well animated and you want the mice to succeed in their endeavour. There is some gender sterotyping with Miss Bianca but she is just as vital to the success of the mission as her companion. It's also interesting to see…

    It's a little disappointing to find that this movie doesn't really hold up as an adult. When I was younger this was one of the VHS tapes that I watched a lot being one of the few English language tapes I had. I didn't love it but I always found it enjoyable. Watching it now it's surprising how unremarkable it is. The story is just okay. A lot of the humor just falls flat. The animation is just okay.

    But…

    This wasn't one of the titles I watched too often as a kid. I'd venture to say I'd really only seen it twice or three times before this rewatch. I was never high on it, and I would say that opinion holds. I've always much preferred The Rescuers Down Under. I will say, however, that this viewing did get me to notice just how very Don Bluth it is.

    Review In A Nutshell:

    My appreciation and experience for Disney Animated Studios are found in spots, as throughout their entire filmography, which at the moment is at 53 films, there are clusters of films that I have seen from the studio like the first five films then a gap of unseen symphonies, then another string of films, with a large gap found in the middle (the 70s-80s Disney), finding familiarity and adoration within the Renaissance period, with a similar pattern…

    Lots of pretty stuff happening; a lot of people think of the "lean years" as artistically bankrupt, but I think the production restraints really improved the artwork in these films.

    Now, a call that they're creatively bankrupt might be fair; I like Bernard and Bianca, and Medusa is great to watch move, but there's really not much happening in this one's brain.

    ★★★★ Rewatched by The Movie King 23 Feb, 2015 3

    Talk about a nostalgic classic! A film about two mice who set out to rescue an abducted orphaned girl from this mad woman only interested in her teeny body in order to retrieve a lavish diamond; not really that great of an idea to come by, is it? Not only that, but the animation looks like someone got drunk in the middle of the night and drew what he thought was something out of a Hanna-Barbera cartoon. But when looking…

    What I Learned:
    Due to the overwhelming predictability and lack of creative stories plaguing the industry this has become an even bigger breath of fresh air, an ignored Disney classic
