* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Joanna the Goanna acts more like a pet dog than anything. She begs, she whimpers, she wags her tail, she crawls through doggy doors, and she watches [=McLeach=]'s catches like a guard dog. She also is as sneaky - and smart about it - as any [[AnimalStereotypes hound dog]]. Medusa also seems to have both her alligators, Brutus and Nero, on leashes, ordering them to retrieve Penny (who is trying to escape their clutches), and the two gators are seen sniffing Bernard and Bianca out with their noses. That said, alligators have a very keen sense of smell all on their own.

* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: Brutus and Nero from the first film. Also the saltwater crocodiles from ''Down Under''.



* ShoutOut: The Alligators have a significant three-tone brass motif, used for dramatic effect. The theme is in fact snitched from Music/TheRiteOfSpring, used in Film/{{Fantasia}} at the dramatic victory of the Tyrannosaurus. A fitting MythologyGag, come to think of it.

The first film, titled simply ''The Rescuers'', was released in 1977. The flamboyantly evil Madame Medusa (Geraldine Page) is trying to get her hands on [[MineralMacGuffin the world's largest diamond]] hidden in a gloomy swamp. Needing someone who will fit in a tiny grotto, she kidnaps a disconsolate orphan girl named Penny (Michelle Stacy). Penny sends out a MessageInABottle asking for help, which is intercepted by the all-mouse Rescue Aid Society, who [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot for some reason]], do not put it somewhere the police might find it while they send out their own agents. Bianca (Eva Gabor) and Bernard (Bob Newhart) are then sent out to save her, with help from an albatross named Orville (Jim Jordan) and a dragonfly named Evinrude (James [=MacDonald=]).

** The villain, McLeach, is an evil version of the AwesomeAussie, a poacher and trader in Australian wildlife who keeps a pet goanna and is able to fight off a horde of hungry crocodiles.
** And Cody is a kid version of the trope; despite being 8 years old, he scales large cliffs with ease, travels around the outback all by himself, and isn't the least bit impressed by McLeach' tactics to try and make him reveal Marahute's location.

* FollowTheLeader: [=McLeach=]'s role led to a further increase of the Evil Hunter archetype, such as [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]], [[Disney/{{Tarzan}} Clayton]], [[WallaceAndGromit Lord Victor Quartermaine]], and [[Literature/TheLittleVampire Rookery]]. The last two are especially notable as the films they're from aren't even made by Disney.

* MaybeEverAfter: Bernard and Bianca don't explicitly become a couple, but there are clear hints of an attraction between them and they stay working together, while also being very affectionate to each other. They get together in the sequel, although it's implied they have been dating for a while before getting engaged.
