Underrated Retro Disney Gem of adventure, whimsy, action, cuteness and raw imagination
The "Rescue Aid Society" is a centuries-old organization that was
founded by the helpful little mouse of the old "Aesop's fable". It's a
secret organization of adventurous, intrepid, yet perfectly civilized
mice from all over the world who lend a helping hand to anyone in need.
Our hero mice of the film are, the beautiful, sophisticated, &
sweet-natured Miss Bianca (Eva Gabor) and her partner-in-adventure and
admirer: the mild-mannered, and cautious Bernard (Bob Newhart). They
are out to rescue a kidnapped 6-year-old orphan named "Penny".
Penny has been kidnapped by the slimy, greedy old pawn shop owner
Medusa (a "Cruella De Vil" prototype no doubt) and her bumbling windbag
minion Snoops who just isn't as intimidating no matter how hard he
trys. Penny is small enough to squeeze into caverns & tombs and
retrieve valuable diamonds for them.
Though cherubic & innocent, but snaggle-toothed & drab-clothed Penny
often lacks confidence in her looks & "adoptable" factor, she's brave,
strong, and resourceful, cooperating with her captors just long enough
to stay safe, and sends messages for "help" and keeping faith that she
will be saved.
The movie's animation has a wonderful classic 70's feel to it, without
looking "cheap" or like it was just thrown together. Though not in
"musical/song-and-dance number" format (thank goodness) there are a few
haunting, yet heartwarming songs playing as we stay hopeful that
precious Penny overcomes this ordeal. It's quite evident that a lot of
heart, soul, and creativity was put into both the story as well as the
animation. Though there is no "violence" in the film there is much
suspenseful peril and well-animated "action sequences" that our mice
heroes must face on their journey for Penny's rescue, that keeps the
viewer on the edge of his/her seat.
Unlike most animated family films of *this* generation, the comic
relief is kept to a minimum and a subtle degree for *most* of the film,
but boy the villains, the climax, and their fates do not fail to bring
This is one of Disney's more underrated & thoroughly charming &
heart-warming animated films from beginning to end. Fun for the whole
family, and a flawlessly executed animated action/adventure with no
gimmicks, snark, pop-culture name-drops whatsoever.
It's a wholesome, heartwarming and quirky animated film that was
conceptualized & powered by nothing but good old-fashioned raw
Definitely worth a watch : 10/10.

I just love this movie. The geographic settings and quality of the artwork
