The Rescuers

Synopsis: When a bottle containing a plea for help from a little girl named Penny makes its way to the Rescue Aid Society, a mouse organization in the basement of the United Nations building dedicated to the rescue and well-being of anyone in need, it is up to the brave mouse Miss Bianca and her chosen partner, the shy janitor Bernard, to rescue the girl. Searching for clues at Penny's home at Morningside Orphanage in New York City, the two mice discover that the girl has been kidnapped by the evil pawn shop owner Madame Medusa and her companion Mr. Snoops. On the back of Orville the albatross, Miss Bianca and Bernard travel to the terrifyingly gloomy Devil's Bayou where they learn the shocking truth: the innocent young girl is being forced down into a dangerous, dark underground pirate's cave where she must find the Devil's Eye, the world's largest diamond and Madame Medusa's greatest obsession. Before returning safely home, Miss Bianca, Bernard, and Penny will have to combat Madame Medusa's tw

Who will rescue me

Oh, who will rescue me

Who will rescue me

I'm lost at sea

Without a friend

This journey

Will it ever end

Who will



Rescue me

Rescue me

Attention, please.

The economic and social council

will convene in five minutes.

G-Good day, sir.

G-Good day, Mr Ambassador.

How do you do, madam?

Order. This emergency meeting

of the International Rescue Aid Society

is now in session.

Delegates, you have been summoned

from all corners of the globe...

because we have reason to believe

that someone is in distress.

As you know, our society has never

failed to answer a call for help.

Hear! Hear!

We will face the portrait of the beloved

founder of our society, Euripides Mouse.

Delegates, hands over hearts.

R- E-S-C-U-E

Rescue Aid Society

Heads held high

Touch the sky

You mean everything to me

In a fix, in a bind

Call on us anytime

We'll appear from nowhere

Mighty are we

R- E-S-C-U-E

Rescue Aid Society

Honesty, loyalty

we pledge to thee

R- E-S-C-U-E

Rescue Aid Society

Heads held high

Touch the sky

You mean everything to me

In a jam, in a scrape

And you think no escape

Do not fear, we'll be here

Courageous are we

R- E-S-C-U-E

Rescue Aid Society

Heads held high

Touch the sky

Our hearts we pledge to thee

Mouse scouts,

bring in the bottle.

Mr Bernard, if you please.

C-C-Coming through.

Uh, pardon me.

Have a care there.

I'm sorry.

Excuse me, sir.

- Oops.

- Egad!

Delegates, this is

no time for levity.

Serious business, you know.

Serious business.

Now what?

Sir, there are 13 steps

on this ladder.

Oh, superstitious nonsense.

What next?

Oh, um, sorry, sir.

I'll have it out

in a jiffy, sir.

"To Morningside Orphanage, New York."

It's difficult to decipher.

I can't make it out.

"I am...

in terrible...

terrible trouble."

Oh, oh, dear,

it's all watered out.


Help. Penny."


Morningside Orphanage?

Dash it all.

It's not much to go on, is it?

Oh, that poor little girl.

Oh, Mr Chairman, please,

please, may I have this assignment?

You, Miss Bianca?

Dear lady, it's absolutely

without precedent.

I mean, it's not like the old days

when it was a man's world.

However, I suppose

there has to be a first time.

Uh, uh, Mr Chairman, sir.

I-I-I don't think Miss Bianca

should go. It could be dangerous.

I mean, I mean, any...

anything could, could happen to her.

You see, dear lady,

before our janitor interrupted...

I was about to suggest that

you should have a co-agent go with you.

Gentlemen, who will volunteer?

Gentlemen, this is indeed

a most difficult decision to make.

I choose...

Mr Bernard

to be my co-agent.

M-Me? Oh, th-that's,

that's really very, uh...

No, uh, see, I'm... I'm...

I'm a... I'm only a-a-a ja-janitor.

Oh, come on.

We'll be a great team together.

Oh, come on!

Bravo! Bravo!

Ajanitor, my lady?

Oh, good heavens. Bless my soul.

Morningside Orphanage.

Here. H-Here it is.

Three blocks down and...

uh, uh, four blocks over.

Well, why don't we take

the short cut through the zoo?

Uh, gee, uh, Miss Bianca, uh...

I don't know. I mean, it's,

you know, it could be risky.

Oh, come on.

Remember our pledge?

Through storm and rain

and dark of night...

Never fail to do what's right.

All right...

duty calls.

Uh, Mr Bernard, um,

maybe we'd better go back.

It's so dark in there.


Who's a...

Who's afraid of the dark?

Look, you, uh, y-you stay here.

I'll... I'll check it out.

Wait for me!

How... How about trying, uh, three blocks

down and, uh, four blocks over?

What did you do

to make him so mad?
