| A long forgotten and compelling Disney film
As a younger child, I used to watch this a few times and loved it as much as anyone else. If I have to sum up the entire movie with one word, actually there are two words to be exact, I say, "Long forgotten and compelling" because this movie is criminally underrated classic from Disney before The Black Cauldron. The only problem in my opinion was that it included recycled bits from the past Disney films along with some scenes, but that's just about it. Everything else turned out great.

The animation is the epitome of excellence with some fluid backgrounds and solid character designs and I liked the way the mice are created as protagonists which makes this movie much more original. The characters are likable and engaging and the voice acting for the characters suited them well. Bernard and Bianca were great thanks to Bob Newhart and Eva Gabor, the forest critters are funny, the little girl named Penny was so cute and likable and the villain is great although not one of my favorite Disney villains I've preferred. The strongest aspects goes to the compelling story and the songs (especially Someone's Waiting For You which was emotional and touching)

Overall, not a masterpiece, but an underrated classic and a long forgotten one at that. Thumbs up!
