A note in a bottle makes its way to New York where it is found by the Rescue Aid Society. An act of good luck because The Rescue Aid Society is an organization of mice dedicated to helping people in trouble. The note is a plea for help by Penny (Michelle Stacy), an orphan, who is being help captive on an abandoned river boat deep in the Devil's Bayou. Two top mice, Bernard (Bob Newhart) and Bianca (Eva Gabor) are dispatched to help Penny. They discover that Penny is being held by the evil Madame Medusa (Geraldine Page) and forced to search for a hidden treasure. A child is needed to crawl through the small cave, and Penny was unlucky enough to be caught when Madame Medusa went looking. Together with help from an assortment of animal friends Bernard and Bianca challenge Medusa and her henchmen in a battle for Penny's freedom.

    I know this is unrelated, but we finally got rid of Sam & Cat! Hallelujah! So that's one crappy Nick show down, seven more to go. Now we just need to get rid of: The Thundermans, The Haunted Hathaways, Breadwinners, Rabbids Invasion, Sanjay and Cat, Every Which Way, and AwesomenessTV.
  • A great Disney movie

    9.0
    The only thing I didn't like was the drinking scenes. Other than that it's a solid movie. And a happy 37th anniversary to this movie and a happy 69th anniversary to Lady and the Tramp!
