I'm a huge fan of Disney's The Rescuers, a lesser known movie from 1977. To sum up from the Disney Wikia article,

The Rescuers is an American animated film produced by Walt Disney Productions and first released on June 22, 1977. The 23rd film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, the film is about the Rescue Aid Society, an international mouse organization headquartered in New York and shadowing the United Nations, dedicated to helping abduction victims around the world at large. Two of these mice, jittery janitor Bernard (Bob Newhart) and his co-agent, the elegant Miss Bianca (Eva Gabor), set out to rescue Penny (Michelle Stacy), an orphan girl being held prisoner in the Devil's Bayou by treasure huntress Madame Medusa (Geraldine Page).

It is far more awesome than it sounds, and in my opinion, it sounds pretty awesome already. Bob Newhart and Eva Gabor are badass mice that save children. Also, John Candy is an albatross, which they use as an airplane.

There was a sequel in 1990, which is a good movie, but I honestly didn't like it as well. However, there's a scene where they show how the Rescue Aid Society's emergency message relay system works, and it's always been one of my favorite parts of the movie. Watching it now, it reminds me in the way it functions of nothing so much as the lighting of the Beacons from LOTR.

Behold:



For comparison, here's the lighting of the Beacons from Return of the King:






Gandolf and Aragorn would be adorable badass mice.
