A series of two films in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon (#23 and #29). Two mice, Miss Bianca (Eva Gabor) and Bernard (Bob Newhart), travel around the world to "[[SpellingSong R - E - S - C - U - E]]" cute human children while dealing with their own UnresolvedSexualTension. The films were based on [[Literature/TheRescuers a series of children's books by Margery Sharp]]. The main similarities are between the first two books and first film, where an orphan girl called Patience is kidnapped and held as a cleaning slave by a cruel diamond-obsessed Duchess.

* MisplacedWildlife: Albatrosses aren't normally found north of the equator. Why at least two of them are living in New York City is anyone's guess.

** Marahute is also called a golden eagle, which doesn't live in Australia (though the very similar wedge-tailed eagle does).



* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Brutus and Nero in the first one, Joanna in the sequel. Frank the frilled lizard is [[{{Keet}} harmlessly]] [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} insane]], so he's an exception to the trope.

** The alligators in the first movie and Joanna in the second don't talk, though.



* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: The protagonists are cute little mice who ally with a pair of albatrosses, a cat, an army of small swamp animals, a kangaroo rat, and a dragonfly. Meanwhile, the animals serving as the antagonists' [[RightHandCat Right Hand Cats]] are a pair of alligators and a LaughablyEvil monitor lizard. The crocodiles that appear in the second film are portrayed as mindless, savage beasts.

** Although Australia does have a large native eagle species (the wedge-tailed eagle), she's referred to in the film as the 'great golden eagle', which is either a conflation with a (much smaller) North American species, or more likely a species made up for the purposes of the film.

** It's said that Penny was going to be in ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'' [[spoiler:to show how she turned out after getting adopted]], but they decided against it and renamed her Jenny. "Once Upon a Time in New York City" and "Good Company" (two songs from ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'') are later being shown up in ''Rufus and Company'', but with Rufus and Penny from the movie instead.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse:
** No, ironically, in this film we ''know'' what happened to the mice: it's a bunch of other creatures that drop off the movie's radar. What happened to the rest of the animals caged up in [=McLeach's=] hideout? They get plenty of screen time, names and personalities start getting established, and then... we never see them again.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Under no circumstances would a modern-day eagle grow to the dimensions of Marahute, whose ''head'' is larger than most of Cody. Her wingspan could easily be estimated at well over twenty feet long in some shots (the biggest eagles would be a stretch to reach ten feet). She's also very smart and ''way'' more friendly then a typical bird of prey (which would probably attack anyone that tried to touch them).

* EekAMouse: Madame Medusa is so freaked out at the sight of Bernard and Bianca that she ''pulls a gun on them''. This despite having two pet alligators.
