This VHS was planned since April 1992, three years after it was last seen in theaters (starting on March 17, 1989) and after 101 Dalmatians was released. It was released on September 18, 1992, and remained in stores through April 30, 1993.


From the bright lights of New York City to the marshy swamps of the bayou, Disney's thrilling adventure classic follows the courageous exploits of two brave mice, Bernard and Miss Bianca.  Answering an urgent call from The Rescue Aid Society, they take off atop the trusty albatross Orville in their quest to rescue a little orphan named Penny from Madame Medusa -- a creepy criminal obsessed with finding the world's biggest diamond. But first they must outwit a pair of outrageous crocodiles before enlisting a spirited army of lovable swamp critters in a full scale invasion of Medusa's riverboat fortress!  Overflowing with action, music and brilliant Disney animation, The Rescuers is a timeless tale of heroism, friendship and teamwork that will entertain the entire family for years to come!
