"The Rescuers" is still my all time favorite animated film of all times. It's so dark, rough around the edges, sweet and adventurous all in one blow. A film like this just does not get made these days because it tackles a lot of issues that are not "safe." Most films today play the "safe" role. They are successful for sure, yet missing where we can go with our art form.
Thanks to Alexiss for passing this awesome dose of inspiration in pencil test form both from Milt Kahl (Medusa) and Ollie Johnston (Penny). OMG, this is golden. This film still gives me the chills to this day. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
