Funny: The Rescuers

The Rescuers

  • The entire Butt Monkey sequence with Orville: first he's Groin Attacked by a firework, then gets his tailfeathers set on fire, causing a crash landing. When he tries to take off again, then he's sucked into Medusa's Swampmobile turbine intake, first with an all-bird sounding "squack!", followed by a Goofy Holler (water distorted, no less!) and an Ash Face once he's finally spit out the other end.
  • The entire calliope scene, especially Bernard's reaction to being shot up in the air and trying to run!
    • Fridge Brilliance kicks in when you realize that when Medusa hears the noise, her first thought is not 'Who is playing the organ?' or even 'Snoops, stop playing with the organ!' but 'ALLIGATORS, STOP PLAYING THE ORGAN!' Brutus and Nero must make it a habit.
      Medusa: (storming out of her room) BRUTUS, NERO, STOP THAT INFERNAL RACKET! I MEAN NOW!
    • Even the music that plays as Nero and Brutus are walking is hilarious.
  • When Bernard talks to Orville over the radio, who first mistakes him for the ATC tower, then nearly gets blown away by a passenger helicopter taking off. After a bout of Angrish (completely with radio Sound Effect Bleep)...
    Bianca: What did he say?
    Bernard: I wouldn't dare repeat it.
  • The "preflight checklist" was hilarious. What does an albatross preflight? Goggles, wings, rudder ("tailfeathers"), and..."If at first you don't succeed, try try again."
    Bernard: I wish we'd taken the train!
  • The Eek, a Mouse!! sequence that follows the calliope scene. It gets even better when Medusa starts firing a semiautomatic shotgun ... and everyone dives for cover from her erratic shots.
  • The entire charge of the swamp-dwelling Ragtag Bunch of Misfits is something straight out of a Three Stooges routine, especially when one of them sets off the fireworks on the boat.
    Bernard: Advance the spark! (HONK!) Not the horn! The spark lever!
  • Anytime Luke (or somebody else) takes a drink of his Swamp Juice.
  • At one point, Penny does an imitation of Medusa's behavior, concluding with imitating Medusa's butt swinging as she walks! Bianca and Bernard found this funny in-universe.

The Rescuers Down Under

  • The whole scene when Joanna obsessively goes after McLeach's eggs as he tries to make an omelet as seen here. Particularly the end, where he seemingly outwits her and gloats.
    "THESE ARE NOT JOANNA EGGS!"
  • this troper always thought it was humorously in character that he kept his eggs in a tool box.
  • McLeach's delightfully twisted and hammy rendition of "Home On The Range", as sung through a poacher played by Patton. The cheery "EVERYBODY!" just cements it.
    "Home, home on the range! Where critters are tied up in chains! I cut through their sides, and I rip off their hides, and the next day, I do it again!
  • The scenes with the imprisoned animals. Frank has to be led through the entire thing, like he's Dora the Explorer. Krebbs is especially funny, because his wisdom creates a nice contrast to this.
    Krebbs: Double or nothing, he's caught in five minutes.
    • Especially funny is the chase scene between Joanna and Frank.
  • McLeach pretending to be worried when Cody's mom will find out he's missing.
    McLeach: Oh no, not the rangers! What'll I do? What'll I do? DON'T LET YOUR MOM CALL THE RANGERS, PLEASE!! (throws Cody's backpack to the crocodile-infested river) "My poor baby boy, got eaten by crocodiles! Boo-hoo-hoo!" Ha! Let's go boy!
  • "I didn't make it all the way through third grade for nothing!"
  • Joanna playing dead after McLeach lied to Cody that Marahoute's dead.
  • The fat snobby female mouse slaps her date (husband, fiance, or boyfriend).
  • McLeach discovering the surprise Bernard led into his truck:
    McLeach: (falsely cheerful) "Joaaana!"
    Joanna: <eagerly rushes to him>
    McLeach: (still seemingly soft) "Did you know there was a razorback in my truck? Did ya?"
    McLeach: (increasingly angry) "Did ya? Well, THERE WAS A RAZORBACK IN MY TRUCK!"
  • The moment when Joanna notices the mouse in Cody's backpack and pounces on him, causing McLeach to fall into the hole. Especially funny is when he crawls out, officially pissed off.
    McLeach: I'm gonna kill her. I'M GONNA KILL THAT DUMB, SLIMY, EGG-SUCKING SALAMANDER!
  • The scenes with Wilbur in the mice hospital. Especially when the mouse doctor orders the nurses to prepare a sedative, and Wilbur protests...
    Wilbur: "You can't do that to me! I'm an American citizen, buddy!"
    Mouse Doctor: "Better double it [the amount of sedative]!"
    • And the Expospeak Gag involving "the epidermal tissue disruptor".
      • "THE EPIDERMAL WHAT?!"
      • Watch carefully, there is a lineup of nurse mice on top of the chainsaw jumping off so they can get enough momentum to yank the pull cord to start it.
    • What makes all this even funnier is that the doctor mice are so used to this reaction that they have a blinking PATIENT ESCAPING sign.
