The Rescuers was released on June 22, 1977. I think I vaguely remember seeing this in the movie theatre right after I turned three years old. I know I remember loving the book as a child and wanting to read about Miss Bianca and Bernard. Last June, I was able to introduce this movie to my boys for the first time during our weekly Family Movie Night. This was the 24th movie in our collection.
While they claimed to have enjoyed it, I’m not sure they really did. My youngest actually left during the viewing, but my middle son stayed for the whole thing. Maybe if I could have come up with better snacks they would have been more into it!
For our snacks, we had Ring Pops to represent the Devil’s Eye Diamond Bianca and Bernard helped find in the pirate skull. We also ate gingersnap cookies. These were the cookies Penny’s cat, Rufus, ate in the movie.
Have you seen The Rescuers? What were your thoughts?
