* What actually happened to Medusa after the end? Did she get eaten by the alligators, as seems to be the implication? I always thought so, as we don't see her get arrested or thrown in jail, but they obviously can't show someone get eaten in a G rated movie so they just [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar heavily imply it.]]

*** Its implied the swamp critters knew about Penny's attempts to escape. Why didn't they devis a plan to help her sooner?

** Simple: the alligators and Medusa's shotgun. When Bernard and Bianca try to sneak through the front to get to Penny, Brutus and Nero easily find them and Medusa goes straight for the kill. They barely escape with their lives before going up to Penny's bedroom window once they can see her. Penny was unable to find the critters while running away every time because the alligators would catch up, meaning there was no opportunity for communication. While the swamp critters are brave, they don't have the layout of the boat the way that Penny does so they don't know what resources to use to trap the gators or get rid of the shotgun. Once they learn about the plan from the mice after convening, it becomes a CurbStompBattle in their favor.

** How so? The only similarity I can think of is that it's about a kid looking for treasure in a flooded cave, and even that's not much of one--in ''Film/TheGoonies'', it's the entire plot, while it only occupies the climax of ''Disney/TheRescuers''.

* Did Bianca not notice that Jake was flirting with her? She kisses Bernard to wake him up during the flight to Australia and immediately accepts when Bernard proposes to her at the end of the movie, suggesting she knew the relationship had shifted to romantic and was happy with it. Did she not realize Jake was trying to put the moves on her, and if she did, why didn't she tell him she's "taken" already?


*** If you think about it, Penny probably gave the Devil's Eye to people who would later one become her adoptive parents, who in turn, turned it into the museum and used the money from it to adopt Penny and maybe give back to the orphanage. That's one theory but that's what I'll go with.

** If I were Penny, i wouldn't want to keep something that would just be a reminder of a time I was kidnapped and held against my will.

** Seems like she should still get some kind of compensation (maybe a trust fund or the like) in exchange for finding it. Though perhaps she did and they just didn't mention it.


*** In what world would they have allowed Penny to keep the diamond? It is an extremely valuable object of historical importance (remember it even has a name- the Devil's Eye; there must be lots of legend and history behind it). The one logical place where one thing would end would be the museum- and even if Penny had considered keeping it (which she wouldn´t because for starters, she never had a personal interest in the diamond), surely Bernard and Bianca would've advised against it, knowing it could get her in trouble. You could even argue that she would be at risk of being adopted by materialistic opportunists rather than truly loving parents if she had been known or suspected to still posess the diamond.

** Also, it is never stated that all human children know animals can talk. It’s possible that only certain children are aware of it (specifically the ones who have befriended talking animals). This seems to at least be the case in Charlotte’s Web. Fern is apparently the only human character (adult or child) who understands the animals’ speech (besides Charlotte’s written messages in her web).
