The Rescuers Down Under

Corrected entry: During the opening titles, when the camera is zooming throughout the plains, you can hear a rattlesnake in the background. There are no rattlesnakes in Australia.

Correction: It's not a rattlesnake but rather part of the percussion of the background music.


Corrected entry: When Bernard, Miss Bianca, and Jake are on their way to rescue Cody, they ride fireflies at night. Fireflies are only native to North America.

Correction: Wrong. Fireflies live from Sydney northwards to the tropical north. Check this website for the details:


Corrected entry: Bernard isn't at all superstitious in this film even though they made such a big deal out of it in film one.

Correction: Well, Bernard is not really the same mouse now. He's changed, so he wouldn't necessarily be superstitious anymore.

Continuity mistake: When McLeach discovers Cody in the hole, McLeach reaches in with his shotgun to help Cody out. It would have to be a very large gun to reach into the bottom of the hole, yet when Cody is pulled out, the gun is shown to be quite small.
