Two fantasy novels by Margery Sharp were combined for in the Disney animated feature The Rescuers. The title characters are a pair of mice, Bernard and Miss Bianca. A little girl named Penny has been kidnapped by the Miss Medusa. When the human law enforcement officials fail to locate the child, Bernard and Miss Bianca take over with the help of several colorful animal companions. In fine old Disney tradition, the comedy element is offset by moments of genuine terror. The animation and the songs were the best Disney had turned out in years. Adding to the fun was the captivating voicework by Bob Newhart (Bernard), Eva Gabor (Miss Bianca), Geraldine Page (Madame Medusa), Jim "Fibber McGee" Jordan, John McIntire, Joe Flynn, George "Goober" Lindsay, and a host of others. Its box office performance fully justifying the four years and $8 million invested in its production, The Rescuers remains one of the most popular of the Disney cartoon films produced after the death of Uncle Walt. A heavily computerized sequel, The Rescuers Down Under was released in 1990.
