More Disney favorites come to DVD

Two family favorites are coming to DVD as special editions from Buena Vista Home Entertainment later this year, the film that made the VW bug famous The Love Bug and the hip mouse duo The Rescuers. Both will be getting two disc special editions later in the year.

In “The Rescuers”, join the shy but brave mouse Bernard (Bob Newhart) and his glamorous partner Miss Bianca (Eva Gabor) – two tiny heroes on a great big mission to save Penny, a young girl who has sent an urgent call for help. Taking off on the wings of the albatross Orville, together they soar to the marshy swamp of Devil’s Bayou. There, they find themselves on the riverboat hideout of the hilariously evil Madame Medusa, who wants to use Penny to steal the world’s largest diamond!

The DVD comes in anamorphic widescreen with audio in Dolby Digital 5.1. Extras include “The Ultimate Case” Set-Top Detective Game, the short film “Water Birds”, The Rescuers Scrapbook, the featurette, “Under The Hat Villains”, the Silly Symphony Three Blind Mouseketeers and a sing along for the song “Someone’s Waiting For You”.
