Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Rescuers...

Violence: A desperate child sends messages for help in bottles she tosses into the ocean. An orphaned child is verbally abused and intentionally manipulated. She is also kidnapped, hounded by alligators and forced to enter a dark cave that floods during high tide. Characters experience perilous situations including frightening moments, scary car drives, a risky airplane ride (aboard a bird), near drowning, falling from heights, and threats of being eaten by other creatures. Guns are fired at characters and fireworks cause explosions. Skeletons are depicted.

Sexual Content: Some male characters express mildly chauvinistic views. Characters are seen in their underwear. A couple hugs and kisses.

Language: Name-calling.

Alcohol / Drug Use: A character, depicted as drunken, drinks moonshine and gives some to others.

Home Video Viewing Alternatives

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to The Rescuers.

This movie is the prequel to The Rescuers Down Under.

You may notice some characters that are reminiscent of others found in Disney animations. Madame Medusa has a lot in common with the villainous Cruella De Vil of 101 Dalmatians. Her pet alligators look like the sidekicks of Ursula in The Little Mermaid. And Eva Gabor voices another glamour girl in The Aristocrats.
