“This captivating and uplifting story centers on the suspenseful odyssey of Mrs. Brisby, a widowed mouse who is the mother of four. Timid and unsure of herself, she pursues a safe haven for her children... Eventually she enlists the help of a clan of intelligent rats that live in a phantasmagorical cavern... Bluth and his animators, bless them, chose to revive an endangered art form - classically detailed animation. They drew their characters exquisitely and gave them individual personalities. The entire ensemble - artists, actors, animals, and musicians - created something unique: the world’s first enjoyable rat race.” - Jeff Unger, Entertainment Weekly
