In the late 80s, Disney was reeling from a lackluster box office. It wasn't until 1989 and The Little Mermaid that they started to regain their footing. One film, released in that buffer zone between the gloom of the 80s and the boom of the 90s was Rescuers Down Under. The first animated movie to use the Computer Animated Production System, it was groundbreaking in many ways but ultimately tends to forgotten by all but the most diehard Disney fans. Join us as we travel with Bernard and Bianca to the land down under where they have to rescue Cody and the great Golden Eagle from the villainous poacher, McLeach.

Bob Newhart, Eva Gabor, John Candy, and George C. Scott start in The Rescuers Down Under.
