Today, after so many years, those words echoed through my mind as I heard them spoken again... :_(
I got a copy of the BluRay version on The Secret of NIMH for $10 at Sam's Club today, and reacquainted myself with Mrs. (F)(B)risby and her family, Auntie Shrew, Jeremy, and the Rats of NIMH. even though I haven't seen it in at least 20 years, it was like I never forgotten it!
Back in 1998, I got to goto ConFurence 9 in Orange, CA. One sight nearly brought me to tears - Nicodemas!!! It was Nicodemas, I swear to god it was him! Glowing eyes, warty paws and all!!! I felt like I saw my grampa again after..... Well, you know.
For all you young whiper-snappers put there who has not seen The Secret of NIMH, you must! This was the defining movie for Don Bluth after he quit Disney, which set him up for many other pivotal furry movies, like An American Tale and The Land Before Time.
PS. A fun fact I just discovered - Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher) was Martin Brisby, the oldest son.
