In “The Rescuers,” Penny is a young girl who proves that if you dream it, you can make it come true. An orphan longing to be adopted by a loving family, Penny is shy but brave and resourceful. After she’s kidnapped by Madame Medusa, who intends to use the child in a diamond heist, she tries to escape but can’t fend off a pair of the kidnapper's crocodile colleagues. Fortunately, the plucky Penny has friends—two mice and an albatross—who help rescue her. She ends with not just her freedom but a loving home with a couple who want to adopt her.
