It's a banner day for the Sweeties as we finally got all the wires and do-dads to configure our DVD player to work! With this old-fangled technology we're now able to watch our favorite Disney classics, and so we pressed our luck at the library to see what Disney oldies and came up with Disney's first animated sequel The Rescuers Down Under! We were HUGE fans of this growing up, watching the bootlegged copy our dad recorded from the TV on the regs, and we credit this movie and Crocodile Dundee with teaching us everything we know about Australia! From 1990, The Rescuers Down Under tells the story of sweet little Cody, a bird lover kidnapped by a the terrifying poacher McLeach who is looking for a rare golden eagle. Bernard and Miss Bianca are two mice from the US who come to save the day as part of the Rescue Aid Society, a worldwide organization run by rodents, that helps kids in trouble. Even though we hate mice, gosh are those little buddies cute. We'll chat about all our B-list Disney favs, talk about memorable scenes and one we randomly quote a lot (Pea Soup!), and ruminate on how Disney was able to convince us that there was such a thing as a Golden Eagle the size of a truck.
