The Rescuers (1977)

Recommended Posts

The 23rd Disney Animated film in the "classic-line up" and through it's lifetime, it's DOM-gross is at $71M which would adjust to $214M in today's money, (Yes, even higher than the adjusted DOM-grosses of later animated films like The Emperor's New Groove, The Hunchback of Notre Dame & Hercules). It also had a $7.5M budget at the time.

 

It's said to be Disney's first big success since The Jungle Book (which was released 10 years before The Rescuers) and is also one of the first Disney animated films without involvement of Walt Disney himself, due to his death in 1966.

 

Any thoughts?

Wow! For some reason I never realized its gross was that high.

 

Upon the conclusion of its second (and final) re-release in 1989, it was the 6th highest grossing animated film of all-time domestically:

 

#1 - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - $143,291,015

#2 - Bambi - $102,247,150

#3 - The Jungle Book - $97,197,993

#4 - Lady and the Tramp - $93,602,326

#5 - 101 Dalmatians - $84,049,729

#6 - The Rescuers - $71,215,869

#7 - Pinocchio - $65,390,608

#8 - The Fox and the Hound - $63,456,988

#9 - Peter Pan - $57,959,520

#10 - Oliver & Company - $53,279,055

 

This was a childhood favorite of mine... I especially loved the "Rescue Aid Society" theme song lol.
